Composer / Arranger Details:

Nebojsa Jovan Zivkovic

Hailed by the critics as one of the most unique and expressive marimba and percussion artists in the field today, Nebojsa Jovan Zivkovic has greatly influenced the international percussion scene during the last two decades – as both a masterful composer and virtuoso performer.  Despite his cosmopolitan lifestyle and attitude, Zivkovic has always preserved his “Slavic soul” which makes his compositions and performances a unique emotional experience.  Concert tours have led him throughout Europe, from Siberia to Spain, from Greece to Finland, repeatedly in Asia, and annually through Latin and North America.

His groundbreaking compositions for marimba and percussion have set new performing standards, and his captivating and energetic performances have influenced generations of marimbists. Many of Zivkovic’s compositions ( for example: Ilijas, Ultimatum1, Trio per uno ) have become popular standards in contemporary percussion repertoire world-wide. His symphonic works are performed by top orchestras, such as the: National Symphony Orchestra, Washington D.C.; BBC Concert Orchestra, London; Orchestra di Santa Cecilia, Rome; Hiroshima Symphony Orchestra; and The Northern Sinfonia in Newcastle, UK. In addition to his thrilling and challenging concert works, he has composed many pieces for younger players. In particular, the pedagogical compositions from his “FUNNY MALLETS SERIES” are among the world’s best sold works for mallet instruments.  With over three hundred performances of his works each year in so far over fifty countries world wide, Zivkovic is one of the most frequently performed composers of marimba and percussion music.

As a charismatic soloist, mostly with his own marimba and percussion concertos, Zivkovic has performed with the: Stuttgart Philharmonic; Munich Symphonic; Bochum Phiharmonic; Austrian Chamber Symphony; Hannover Radio Symphony; Bielefeld Philharmonic; Belgrade Philharmonic; Slovenian Philharmonic; Slovenian Radio Symphony Orchestra; National Orchestra of Costa Rica, Minnesota Orchestra; and many others. He has also performed in such prestigious venues as the Viennas “Konzerthaus”, National Recital Hall Taipei, and the Stockholms “Nybrokajen”. In addition to his composing and concert activities, he gives master classes and seminars in Europe, Asia, Mexico and regularly through the USA. 

For over twenty years now Zivkovic has performed exclusively on YAMAHA MARIMBAS, since this is the instrument that perfectly fits all his needs, beside he is also using Zildjian Cymbals, Meinl percussion, Evans drumheads and Mapex concert toms/drums.  For more information on current projects, concert dates, compositions and CD’s, please visit:  www.zivkovic.de

Programme Notes / Performance Details :

"Suomineito is Finish, the language of "Suomi" people, as the Fins calls themselves and it means "Finish girl".  This quiet and melancholic composition was inspired by an original folk song from Finland called "Heili Karjalast".  In Suomi language this means "a friend from karelia", a region that in the past used to be a part of Finland." -N.J. Zivkovic

Great job. This piece gives you a little lead way to put your interpretation on it. Articulation is great. You can hear how the harmonies and melody was well written.
