MusicMladenović & Wilson: Violin & Piano

The Mladenović-Wilson duo brings together an outstanding Serbian violinist with one of Ireland’s leading composers, also a pianist in his own right. As a duo, Dušica and Ian explore a wide range of music from classical greats such as Schubert and musical mavericks like Erik Satie to more contemporary work by the likes of Arvo Pärt and Wilson himself.

Violin piano Wilson Mladenović classical music Portaferry

Their musical collaboration began more than 10 years ago when Ian composed a new work for Dušica’s violin trio and since then they have collaborated on a number of premieres and CD recordings. One of the highlights so far was the world premiere of ‘Socrates Ungraved’, Ian’s reworking of Erik Satie’s ‘Socrate’ into a work for violin and orchestra which Dušica premiered with the Belgrade Philharmonic in 2018. Dušica and Ian are delighted to be presenting the first performances in Ireland of a new version of ‘Socrates Ungraved’ for violin and piano.

Passionate about sharing their favourite music with audiences, the Mladenović-Wilson duo is delighted to be making their Irish debut with a North/South tour in summer 2022.
