Anja Đorđević:The Joy of Meeting Anew, Belgrade Philharmonic commission
F. Say:Silence of Anatolia, concerto for piano and orchestra No. 3
The title of the piece Radost ponovnog susreta (The Joy of Meeting Again) is a straightforward and direct summary of the circumstances and the process of working on the score. Namely, following her Abduction of Europa from 1997, Anja Djordjević committed to other genres, primarily to the musical theatre and stage music. Her return to symphonic music came after receiving a commission from the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra for an orchestral piece. The new creative energy, as well as the experience and positive feeling for the orchestra musicians, with whom she had cooperated in her other projects, made her work on this piece infused with special creative joy.
