On December 8th at Kolarac, Belgrade, a concert dedicated to Dejan Despic took place. His pieces were played by various artists accompanied with RTS Symphonic Orchestra. This contemporary music might not comply with everybody’s ear, being somewhat dissonant, ‘grating’ as a lady said – I found it exciting, bringing up dramatic sensations. May the author forgive me the comparing, but having listened these pieces, I had the figure of some of Edgar Allan Poe’s (whom I like much) characters in mind – those love-loving melancholics whose sensitivity sometimes leads to disturbance and cruelty.
The impression of the concert was Natasa Veljkovic’s performance of ‘Concert for Natasa’. Natasa’s interpretation was overwhelming, not only on my opinion, shadowing the piece itself. The curiosity is that Despic wrote this piece for Natasa when she was just 12 years old, inspired by her playing. And by what we’ve seen, it adheres so much to her temper. My ‘second best’ were mezzosoprano Natasa Jovic-Trivic with a chorus in ‘Jefimija to Lazar’ and violinist Julija Hartig. The audience did not spare palms showing the affection, as the artists really gave us a splendid evening.
To the next convenient occasion, I wish you all a happy new year!
