J. Velickovic: Good Bach. In this work, a recording of Glenn Gould's performance of Prelude and Fugue C major WTK I by JS Bach is played while the pianist, interacting with the recording, performs Veličković's composition. For this piece, a statistical method was applied to exactly the same notes as Bach's work, ordering them from the lowest to the highest pitch and thus creating a different logic which deviates from traditional musical styles. Here, Veličković problematises the technique of playing piano as well as the status and function of the piano as an instrument. In this piece particularly, the usual "composer-score-performer-sound" chain is altered, as Bach's notes become a set of traces - a pattern in a dissembled media and conceptual phenomenology of the work. The listener is confronted with both compositions simultaneously, and in their overlapping, a third one emerges.
A Andric: December (2018) is a cycle of six piano works that takes inspiration from two sources: Bach's four-part chorale harmonization and medieval organum. It takes the meditative character of chorale-inspired chord progressions one step further. Here the harmony is reduced to a single six-note chord, and the listener is invited to contemplate the fluctuations and shades of sound as the chord progresses systematically through all its inversions in a space afforded by two hands and four octaves. Each of the six works from the December cycle is a permutation and transposition of the previous one.
Anita Tomasevich (piano) has performed in some of the major halls in The Netherlands, Spain, London, Italy, Russia and Serbia. She is a laureate of international competitions, including first prize in Citta di Tortona Italy and she has appeared regularly on Serbian National Radio and Television. She studied in the Music Academy in Novi Sad, Royal Conservatoire in Den Hague and was accepted for PhD studies at the Royal Academy of London. She studied with renowned teachers such as Jegor Chugayev (student of Y. Milstein), Svetlana Bogino (student of L. Oborin) and Vladimir Ograkov (student of E. Gilies), Marcel Boudet and Ellen Corver (student of K. Stockhausen). Yelena Richter, Lazar Berman, Gyorgy Sandor (student of Bella Bartok) and Stefan Vladar. In 2005 she released her first CD recording with works of Scarlatti, Chopin, Scriabin and Prokofiev. In 2006 her career as a concert pianist was stopped by the spinal injury. After almost ten years of recovery, Anita started performing again, both solo and chamber music, receiving excellent reviews. During season 2016/17 she had series of recitals in Cyprus, Italy and Holland and for the seasons 2018 /2019, she will perform solo and chamber music recitals in Serbia, Holland, Cyprus, Greece and Germany. As a chamber musician, Anita forms a piano duo with a Dutch pianist Eke Simons and with the Romanian violinist, residing in Cyprus, Sorin Alexandru Horlea.
