''She is an artist with that “one-(wo)man army” quality. That is hugely impressive in every way.” Djordje Matić (Novosti/Zagreb)
For the past thirty years Branka Parlic
has been a tireless advocate of contemporary music,
respectively minimalism and post minimalism. Working as a piano teacher
at the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad, lecturer and artistic director of the concert series
New Ears for New Music
she has engaged diverse audiences throughout the Region and Europe with the music of our time.
Through the years, this impressive pianist built an incomparable stylistic purity. Her interpretations
of Satie or Glass for example, are considered among the best and are being regularly broadcasted on major
Radio and Television stations in Region as well as on the British Classic FM TV and C Music TV.
If there was a pantheon of great pianists, someone said, she would definitely have a special place.
Branka’s performance of Opening from Glassworks was described as a stroke of genius because she creates
something ethereal through her interpretation. However, it seems like the transcendental feeling is
present almost every time she plays.
