The legendary pianist Ivo Pogorelić, whose concert performances were described by the New York Times as creations that are 200 years ahead of our time, will hold a concert in Belgrade on 18 March 2024, in the Concert Hall of the Kolarac Endowment at 8 p.m., with the Vojvodina Symphony Orchestra conducted by Aleksandar Marković. The concert is organized by the Belgrade Festivals Centre – CEBEF.  

Tickets are on sale online at and at Ticket Vision outlets.

Pogorelić gave an outstanding concert at the 54th BEMUS in 2022, bringing the audience to its feet. After two years, he arrives in his native Belgrade, where he will perform the Piano Concerto No. 2, for piano and orchestra, by Sergei Rachmaninoff in the first part of the concert, and the symphonic suite ‘Scheherazade’ by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov was announced for the second part. The suite features an exceptional soloist, violinist Florin Iliescu, the first concertmaster of the Frankfurt Radio Symphony, who will be the concertmaster in the first part of the concert.        

Pogorelić has performed on the world’s prestigious stages (Carnegie Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Musikverein, Tonhalle, Teatro Colón, Suntory Hall, Elbphilharmonie, etc). At the same time, he has also dedicated himself to making studio recordings. As an exclusive Deutsche Grammophon artist, he released 14 albums of anthological value between 1981 and 1998. A box set containing these editions released in 2015 were crowned with the French Diapason d’Or award for overall contribution to the classical music discography. After more than twenty years of being fully committed to live concerts, Pogorelić returned to the studio in 2019 as an exclusive artist of the Sony Classical record company with the long-awaited album containing sonatas by Beethoven and Rachmaninoff, which was nominated for a Grammy Award in the same year. At the beginning of 2022, his second album, with interpretations of Frederic Chopin’s works, was released for this publisher.                     

The Vojvodina Symphony Orchestra, founded in February 2011, is a reputable ensemble with a high level of performance. In the past period, it has successfully performed over seventy premiere programmes, with the participation of world-renowned domestic and foreign conductors. The orchestra has performed close to 170 concerts so far, especially excelling in the late-Romantic repertoire, but also in interpretations of works created in the 20th and 21st centuries.        

Aleksandar Marković has been the chief guest conductor of the Sinfonia Varsovia orchestra since 1 September 2022, and for the previous two seasons (2021/2023) he was also the chief conductor of the Vojvodina Symphony Orchestra. In addition to collaboration with leading European orchestras, such as the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, the Beethoven Orchester Bonn, the Konzerthausorchester Berlin and a number of other distinguished ensembles, he is also engaged in the opera repertoire (Tchaikovsky, Strauss, Janáček and others).
