Info for Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition (Pictures Part I)

Mussorgsky refreshingly different: It is one of the most arranged works in music history and the original is almost less well known than the outstanding arrangement by Maurice Ravel: the "Pictures of an Exhibition" by Modest Mussorgsky. Nikola Djoric devotes herself to the highly romantic repertoire and plays the original notes - but not on the piano.

Nikola Djoric is a young and aspiring musician who has made a name for himself in the major concert halls of Europe and the world, starting in the Austrian capital Vienna. He plays an instrument made especially for him whose image has only recently improved: the accordion. When the Serbian-born musician literally takes his instrument to his chest, he takes us into unimagined spheres of sound, can be frightened by volume and enchant us with the finest melodic lines. The extreme agility of the accordion allows him, especially during Mussorgsky's musical tour through an exhibition, to illuminate the hidden and unheard lines, arcs and sounds of the original score.

It is his claim to involve the listener in the events, to bring him into his emotional world and yet to make him his very individual thoughts and ideas. The pictures in an exhibition provide plenty of opportunity for this: the cramped gnome, the jumping chicks taking their first steps, the bustling hustle and bustle at the market, the freezing cold and suffocating darkness of the catacombs and the stomping kicks of the Baba Yaga.

Nikola Djoric
Vienna-based accordionist Nikola Djoric is considered one of the greatest talents in his field in Austria. Thanks to his great musical devotion and expression on stage, he has already been described as an "accordion poet" (Basellandschaftliche Zeitung).

Nikola Djoric studied with Svetlana Kravchenko, Jovica Djordjevic, and then Grzegorz Stopa at the Vienna Conservatory and graduated in 2013 with the Master of Arts.

Since then he has set himself the task of clearing away old reservations about his instrument and rather inspiring new and never before perceived hues in works ranging from Bach to Beethoven, Mozart and Scarlatti with the sound spectrum of the accordion.

In various musical formations (among others with Ensemble Wien (Vienna Philharmonic), with cellist Ana Topalovic (Duo-Arcord) with Signum Saxophone Quartet as well with the singer Juliette Mars (Vienna State Opera) he performed on international stages, such as the Philharmonie in Cologne, Musikverein in Vienna and at the Beethoven Festival in Bonn and convinced both the audience and the critics of his musical excellence.

He also played with orchestras such as the "Orchestra Classica St. Petersburg", the "Young Symphony Orchestra Moscow", the "Philharmonic Orchestra Irkutsk" and the "Upper Austrian Youth Symphony Orchestra" under conductors such as Ilmar Lapinsch, Vasili Valitov, Alexander Vikulov, Vasilis Tziatzianis and Tobias Wögerer.

Important competitive achievements in his career are, among others, the first prize of the Fidelio University competition at Vienna Conservatory in 2009 and 2011. This competition offers high visibility in Austria and leads to numerous international engagements.

Contemporary music is also of great interest to him. He works with many composers and has performed premieres of works by Johanna Doderer, Akos Banlaky, Gabrielle Proy, Margareta Ferek-Petrić, Armin Sanayei, Marc Frieden, Ricardo Tovar, Elzbieta Wiedner-Zajac, Adrian Artacho, Wen Liu, Alexander Chernyshikov and Lukas Neudinger.
