Piccolo flutist Snježana Pavićević will give a concert at the Belgrade Philharmonic Hall on Wednesday, February 5, at 8:00 p.m. Accompanied on the piano by Vanja Sćepanović, she will present a diverse repertoire on this unique instrument.
The program includes music from the Baroque to the 21st century, with works by Bach, Rabboni, Dorff, Damaré, and Doherty. The audience will also have a special opportunity to hear the premiere of Ivan Brkljčić’s composition “Zvrk” for Piccolo and Piano, which he wrote specifically for her. At the same time, this is the first Serbian composition written for the piccolo.
Snježana has been a permanent member of the Belgrade Philharmonic since 2002 as solo piccolo. Recently she completed a Master study program for the piccolo at the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory in Milan with Professor Nicola Mazzanti.
She graduated and holds a master’s degree in flute from the Belgrade Academy of Music in the class of Professor Miodrag Azanjac.
In addition to her orchestra engagements, she performs as a soloist and as a member of many chamber ensembles with the flute, and more recently with the piccolo in order to promote this instrument in this region. To that end, she has launched a project called the “Piccolo Weekend in the Philharmonic,” which brings together all flute students, as well as young professionals, who want to become more familiar with the piccolo, improve their skills, and keep abreast of world trends with regard to the piccolo.
Snježana plays on a Burkart Elite Deluxe piccolo she recently procured from this Boston manufacturer.
Concert admission is free.
