ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Pianist Alexander Djordjevic is known for his “formidable talent and technique,” “profound poetic sensitivity” and “elegant, expressive, yet powerful and electrifying playing.” The Washington Post has declared him “a constant infusion of original insight.”

Gramophone Magazine writes about his latest CD release, Gray Clouds: Piano Music of Franz Liszt, “Djordjevic brings great subtlety to this well programmed Liszt Disc.” It goes on to write, “… Djordjevic's mastery and commitment are never in doubt. Listen to the first Elegie's carefully gauged climaxes, the subtle gradations in tone that help flesh out Nuages gris' sparse textures, the warm legato that embraces Romance oubliée's soft chords, or how the pianist imbues the Bagatelle ohne Tonart's grace notes with a convincing jazzy flair.” Phoenix Classical writes, “Through all of these works, Djordjevic displays a deep affinity for Liszt’s music, showcasing by turns their profundity, their thoughtfulness and their joy, and in every case transcending any limitations of technique. Gray Clouds: Piano Music of Franz Liszt by Alexander Djordjevic is a stirring collection of works from one of music’s most original artists.”

As a Fulbright Scholar, Alexander Djordjevic was a student of the Russian pianist and pedagogue Vitaly Margulis at the Hochschule für Musik in Freiburg, Germany where he was awarded the Aufbaustudium Diploma “With Distinction.” In addition to being named a Fulbright Scholar, Djordjevic was a prizewinner in numerous piano competitions including First Prize, Grace Welsh Prize for Piano; First Prize, Kankakee Valley Symphony Orchestra's Young Artists Piano Competition; First Prize, Chicago Artists Association Competition; Nena Wideman Piano Competition, Shreveport, Louisiana; and Union League Civic & Arts Foundation Piano Competition, Chicago. He was also selected to participate in the Cleveland International Piano Competition; the Young Concert Artists International Auditions, New York; and the New Orleans International Piano Competition.

Alexander Djordjevic has performed as concerto soloist with the Central Oregon Symphony, New Philharmonic, Symphony of Oak Park River Forest, DuPage Symphony, Kankakee Valley Symphony and Danville Symphony. Mr. Djordjevic’s solo recital performances have included the Academy of Arts and Sciences, Belgrade, Yugoslavia; the Phillips Collection, Washington, DC; the Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concerts, Chicago, Illinois; PianoForte Chicago including Schubertiade Chicago; the Harold Washington Library, Chicago, Illinois; the Steinway Society Recital Series; the 19th Century Club; and various performances in Germany. Djordjevic has performed Duo-piano recitals with Dr. Daniel Paul Horn, Dr. Mayumi Kikuchi, and Brenda Huang at various venues including PianoForte Chicago, Wheaton College, University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign), University of Louisville, Middle Tennessee State University, and University of Akron.

Born in Chicago, Alexander Djordjevic began his piano studies at age three, performing as a concerto soloist at ages twelve and fifteen. He studied piano at the University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign) where he earned his Undergraduate and Master's degrees and completed the Doctoral coursework. His teachers have included Gustavo Romero, Joel Shapiro, Vitaly Margulis, William Heiles, Gellert Modos, Sally Bauer and Ann Schein (Aspen).

He has released two CDs: Gray Clouds: Piano Music of Franz Liszt (2009), which features rarely performed late piano works of Franz Liszt; and Alexander Djordjevic Plays Scarlatti – Beethoven – Chopin – Rachmaninov – Liebermann (2000).

Djordjevic’s performances have been broadcast on various radio stations including WFMT (Chicago) and WCLV (Cleveland) and his latest CD, Gray Clouds: Piano Music of Franz Liszt, has already been played on over 30 classical radio stations throughout the United States and Canada.

Mr. Djordjevic is also highly regarded as a piano teacher. He is currently on the piano faculty at the Music Institute of Chicago at their Steinway of Chicago, Downers Grove, Illinois location, and at the College of DuPage, Glen Ellyn, Illinois.

Mr Alexander Djordjevic is a great performer and there is no musician with whom
I would give Mr.Alexander Djordjevic more than 5 stars because he is a great performer and there is no musician with whom we/I can compare him with. He has his own unique style of playing. His music are always so deep and emotional that I become engrossed in his beautiful way of playing. He plays his piece with so intensity that there is no way to ignore it and he has put a life in every music he has played. I think we are lucky and we should be proud to have such a brilliant musician between us! I wish he keeps of playing in the same way as he is and give us more opportunities of appreciating them GOOD LUCK TO YOU Mr.Alexander Djordjevic! WAY TO GO.....

On this CD Alexander Djordjevic plays a well-varied program of classical favorites, from Late Baroque to Modern. All of the selections are played with emotion and precision.
If you've not heard Lowell Liebermann's Gargoyles, Op. 29, this recording would be a great addition to your collection. It is a challenging piece which Djordjevic plays brilliantly. We highly recommend this CD.

As I was driving to do errands, I listened to this CD. Two stops were missed, because I became so engrossed in the beautiful sounds I was hearing. The Beethoven nearly brought me to tears! It is played with so much intensity and feeling. And then there were the other pieces to enjoy. Wonderful!
