New Composition - From Jazz to Baroque featuring

"Voices of Opera"

Piece of music featuring latest virtual instruments library from EastWest - Voices of Opera. Music composed and orchestrated by Vladan Mijatovic. All rights reserved.

Collaboration with the musicians from social media...

This is the cover song of the legendary bassist Alain Caron, Right after four. Vladan has never met the musicians in this video and everyone has recorded their parts separately. This band was formed on "Instagram" and the idea is to record cover and original songs entirely online with the help of modern communications. Musicians in this video are Vladan Mijatovic (USA/Serbia) - Keyboards, Nikolay Maksimov (Russia) - Drums, Alexander Lupachick (Russia) - Bass, Maxim Sosnovskikh (Russia) - Guitar. This video is also an examples that music knows no boundaries and that the borders does not exist, thus the band members are American/Serbian and Russian and they get along very well as you can see in this video.

Vladan has a huge passion and love for film scoring. This is his latest score on theme "Constellation"

VLADAN V3

V3 is an exciting and innovative new Serbian-American, Jazz-Folk Trio based in New York City. Led by Vladan Mijatovic on piano, together with Berklee College of Music graduates Milos Branisavljevic on drums and Akos Forgacs on bass, they are bringing a fresh, alternative sound to a diverse and demanding music scene. 

 

In a clear, original format V3 traverses boundaries of traditional Eastern European music, specifically Balkan folk melodies, blending the varied, uneven rhythms and colorful lyricism of beloved folk tunes with the sharp, cutting edge sounds of contemporary jazz. The atypical approach of V3 brings a unique perspective to today’s music.

 

Being brought up at that part of the world, where music is ornamental, melodious and vastly colorful, man is often bestowed with the unique skills and unconventional abilities in music. 

 

Vladan Mijatovic and Milos Branisavljevic have composed several tracks blending native Balkan flavors with current influences. Their debut album, Folk Legacy, features several covers such as “Biljana,” an old traditional Macedonian song, as well as “Night in Tunisia,” the famous jazz standard composed by the legendary Dizzy Gillespie. The featured artists on Folk Legacy include special guest, Ismail Lumanovski, virtuoso on clarinet, and are among today's most accomplished Eastern European musicians. Their inventive compositions are a testament to the creative impetus that is leading the way to new frontiers in “World Music”.

 

V3 brings a welcome new sound and an authentic, global sensibility to the contemporary musical landscape.

From his debut concert at the world famous Carnegie Hall, Vladan donated everything to charity

 

"Vladan accomplishes an impressively seamless mash-up of Eastern European, Western Classical, and American jazz styles". 

(All About Jazz)

"In the end, making music, any kind of music, is all about the performer connecting with his or her audience. This, Vladan does without question; his playing opens his heart to ours". 

(All About Jazz)

"Vladan also recognizes the splendor and happiness that beautiful music can provide and to that end, he leaves a bit of his soul on the keys as he performs the music of this album". 

(All About Jazz)

"To listen to his debut solo piano album is to be engulfed by the whirlwind that is Vladan."

(All About Jazz)

"Ornaments, his solo piano debut is an expansive portrait of his unique style".

(The New York Jazz Record)

"His music mixes classical sensibility with Balkan folk music coupled with improvisation, making him end up sounding like a modern Balkan Chopin merged with

Oscar Peterson."
