Young pianist Aleksandar Pavlović will give a recital at the Belgrade Philharmonic Hall on 21 December 2017, 8pm. The programme will include Beethoven’s Sonata Op. 101. Chopin’s Polonaise-fantaisie, Op.61, Rachmaninoff’s Variations on a Theme of Corelli and Scriabin’s Fantasie Op. 28.
“In the programme where all four pieces are entirely different in terms of expression, style and structure, the first three, in a way, share a common characteristic of being created in the late part of their respective composers’ careers and they represent, in many respects, some of their most intimate, introspective experiences. In contrast, Scriabin wrote his Fantasie while a student, so it fully depicts the youthful passion and explosiveness”, said the young pianist, whose upcoming guest appearances include performances in London (St. James’s Piccadilly and Royal Albert Hall – Elgar Room) and Edinburgh.
Already at age 17, Aleksandar received a scholarship from the Royal College of Music in London, where he graduated after studying with prof. Norma Fischer, and where he is currently in the second year of the Master of Performance studies. During undergraduate studies, he was a recipient of the Soiree d’Or scholarship, as well as of the grant awarded by the Delta Foundation.
The awards that Aleksandar Pavlović won in national and international competitions include the Robert Schumann and Chappell Medals, the Royal College of Music in London, competitions in Rome and Gorizia, Nikolai Rubinstein in Paris, Petar Konjović in Belgrade. For his achievements in 2010, Pavlović received the Dositej Award, presented by the Serbian Ministry of Youth and Sports.
