Artistic And Musical Background

Dejan Bogdanovich was born into an artistic family; his grandfather, a famous Belgrade sculptor, graduated from the Acadamie des beaux-Arts in Paris, where he formed a lifelong friendship with Picasso. His father is well known as a painter and writer; his paintings have been shown frequently at the Biennale di Venezia, and his writings have been translated into numerous European languages. Dejan’s talent for music was apparent at an early age, was nurtured by his first teachers and furthered at a school for gifted children. His performing career began when he was eleven and at seventeen, he performed concertos by Paganini and Mendlessohn with the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra. At nineteen, he won International Competitions in Vienna and Zagreb. After a period of study in Russia, he was a frequent soloist with orchestras all over Europe, in Russia, South America and Canada. In 1993, because of the war in Yugoslavia, and since he had already given master-classes and concerts in Italy, he accepted an invitation to work and live permanently in Venice. He currently divides his time between concerts, ( he has a successful piano duo with Gabriele Maria Vianello Mirabello) teaching, giving master classes, broadcasting and recording.
