Nemanja Radulović


"This is a violinist who can produce the sweetest timbre and maintain the cleanest of lines” David Karlin (Bach Track)


Serbian-French violinist Nemanja Radulović champions the power of music to bring people together with his unique energy and candour, thrilling virtuosity, depth of expression, and adventurous programming. His hotly anticipated BBC Proms debut in 2019 with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Kirill Karabits featured a Barber Violin Concerto played with ‘lyric delicacy and…super-virtuosity’ (The Times).

Signed exclusively to Warner Classics in 2021, Mr Radulović’s debut album on the label – ROOTS – represents a beguiling sonic journey evoked by his many influences and inspirations to date. His previous album, Baïka, one of a string of nine successful recordings made on the Deutsche Grammophon and the Universal Music Group labels, was declared ‘a fiery whirlwind of an album…’ by BBC Music Magazine, which awarded it 5 stars and the coveted Critics’ Choice Award. Gramophone Magazine praised Baïka’s ‘imaginative pairings’, saying that ‘…Radulović dispatches [the Khachaturian Violin Concerto] with energy and firepower…’ and that ‘…with Radulović as narrator, this is an album with entrancing tales to tell.’

His latest Warner Classics album, releasing in November 2023, features Beethoven’s Violin Concerto and Radulović’s own arrangement of Beethoven’s famed ‘Kreutzer’ Sonata.

Winner of the 2015 Echo Klassik Award for Newcomer of the Year, Mr Radulović’s recent and forthcoming highlights include debut engagements with the New York Philharmonic, Philharmonia Orchestra, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, the Hallé Orchestra, and the Orchestre Symphonique de Québec; an extensive UK tour with the Gävle Symphony Orchestra and Jaime Martín; sold-out performances with his ensemble Double Sens at diverse venues such as the 1000-seat Tašmajdan Stadium in Belgrade, the Folle Journée de Nantes and Chorégies d’Orange festivals, and at the Paris Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Berlin Philharmonie, and Vienna Konzerthaus.

Radulović also regularly undertakes a play/direct role with his chamber orchestra, Double Sens, which was recently celebrated for their unprecedented musical film entitled Unique – an artist, a place, a concert, which featured selections by Bach and from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, as well as a new arrangement by frequent collaborator Aleksandar Sedlar of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, all shot and recorded live at the Neolithic site in Carnac, France. 

Mr Radulović’s recognition for his work in classical music includes International Revelation of the Year by the Victoires de la musique classique in 2005, an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Arts in Niš, Serbia, and an ELLE Style Award for Musician of the Year in 2015. In 2017, he was appointed ‘Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres’. He was the winner of several international violin competitions, such as Joseph Joachim in Hanover, George Enescu in Bucharest, and Stradivarius in Cremona.

Born in Serbia in 1985, Nemanja Radulović studied at the Faculty of Arts and Music in Belgrade, the Saarlandes Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Saarbrücken, the Stauffer Academy in Cremona with Salvatore Accardo, and the Conservatoire de Paris with Patrice Fontanarosa.
