After his exciting journey into the musical tradition of Eastern Europe (Journey East) and the Baroque sound-scapes of J.S. Bach (Bach), Nemanja Radulović now turns his attention to the Russian master of the Romantic era, Tchaikovsky, excelling as violinist and (in an arrangement of the famed Rococo-Variations for viola and string ensemble) a violist. For Nemanja Radulović a personal approach when creating an album is essential. Bringing together Tchaikovsky’s two most important works for solo strings and orchestra is bringing together the two of the most relevant poles of his life –  Belgrade and Paris: The Rococo Variations are linked to the first part of his life, when he was a student in Belgrade before the Balkan war. At this time Nemanja not only used to playing the violin, but also the viola and sometimes the cello. Playing an arranged viola version of the Rococo variations which originally were composed for cello takes him back to his musical childhood in Belgrade. Yvan Cassar, who worked with Nemanja on Journey East has now produced compelling arrangements for strings and piano of the Rococo Variations. They provide a lightness and an energy that are perfectly suited for Tchaikovsky’s music. The Rococo Variations were recorded in Belgrade with ensemble Double Sens (French for: “double direction” & “double meaning”). The group reflects perfectly Nemanja’s dual past between Paris and Belgrade as it includes his former student-friends from Serbia, and his friends from the Conservatoire de Paris (including 2 members of the Fontanarosa family). The Tchaikovsky concerto is linked to Nemanja’s arrival in Paris. He began to work on the concerto with his Conservatoire de Paris’ teacher Patrice Fontanarosa. Since then, this piece has been the concerto Nemanja has played most often during his career, opening the doors to the great concert halls of the world like in Paris, London or Tokyo. The concerto was recorded in Istanbul with the Borusan Istanbul Philharmonic Orchestra and Sascha Goetzel, with which Nemanja feels he finds the freedom to develop and express what is fundamentally important to him in the respective work.

Serbian violinist Nemanja Radulovic, long flying hair and all, evokes the spirit and sound of the Central European violinists of a hundred years ago. On this collection of pieces, mostly associated with Slavic lands (John Williams' "Theme from Schindler's List" makes a fascinating exception), he takes new chances, and they pay off big time. Radulovic has developed a vigorously rhythmic style that can build up a good deal of momentum in a piece like the opening "Hungarian Dance No. 1" of Brahms, and he effectively alternates these with pieces that lay on the sentiment. What's new here is that Radulovic has reached out and gotten the music he needs from other genres, from unusual sources, and from a variety of ensembles. There are several arrangements by Yvan Cassar that make a wonderful effect. Sample the violin and small-ensemble version of Khachaturian's "Sabre Dance" (track four) for a bit of pure excitement that someone might have come up with in an old Viennese cafe in 1900, but probably not since then. Radulovic draws on some Serbian film soundtracks and on original compositions. He employs not only his usual backing group Les Trilles du Diable, but also a slightly larger string group called Double Sens and, on several tracks, the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin. The musicians back up Radulovic's fiery effects, and the end result is perhaps the most colorful and exciting exotic violin recitals in many years. Bravo! ~ James Manheim

Booklet
The construction of a rebellious, young classical player can proceed along the lines of image-making, or of unorthodox music-making. With the violinist Nemanja Radulovic you get both. Radulovic has been noted for long hair, leather pants, and ABBA covers, and he's already achieved a good deal of crossover success in Britain. Now, signed to Deutsche Grammophon, he essays more conventional repertory in the form of some Bach standards, but the effect is hardly less outrageous. A co-star with Radulovic on this release is Serb composer Aleksandar Sedlar, who devises violin-and-orchestra arrangements of the Toccata and Fugue in D minor for organ, BWV 565, the "Air" from the Suite No. 3 in D major for orchestra, BWV 1068, and the "Chaconne" from the Partita No. 2 for solo violin in D minor, BWV 1004. Listener reactions to these will be a matter of taste. All are designed to be played at turbocharged speeds, and the album as a whole certainly has a high energy level, even in the actual violin concertos and a rare viola concerto (again featuring Radulovic) purportedly by J.C. Bach, reconstructed years ago by Henri Casadesus. The "Chaconne" may make you feel as though something has been scrawled on a work that is profoundly economical as it stands, but the orchestration in the Toccata and Fugue is quite inventive. At any rate, as the classical world looks for its next Nigel Kennedy, Radulovic appears on this release as a potential candidate for the role.
