Nemanja Radulovic: Bach

Nemanja Radulovic: Bach, Les Trilles du Diable

After his Echo Award-Winning Album Journey East, we present Nemanja’s eagerly awaited new album on Deutsche Grammophon


This “exceptionally talented” violinist, a growing star in France, now turns to the roots of classical music, to one of the most popular composers of our time: Bach

He has recorded a unique and very personal collection of Bach hits, including new arrangements of the famous Chaconne, the Air on a G string and the Toccata + Fugue

These tracks in particular offer opportunity for high-visibility streaming placement! Please reach out to your local streaming account managers already - international plan to follow!

Album includes Johann Christian Bach’s (one of the composer’s musician sons) delightfully poetic and rarely performed Viola Concerto.

Radulović plays both the violin and the viola on this recording - it’s his recording debut as a viola player!

Review

Bach has been recorded, re-recorded and then re-done, re-worked and re-recorded again. But never have I heard such an arrangement of J.S. Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor as this on Nemanja Radulovic’s latest album. I’ve heard this work done for wind band, piano and many unlikely combinations, but this particular arrangement is engaging and uses all the string instruments to their full potential in a fascinating new prism through which to experience Bach’s most famous work. Along with new arrangements of the Chaconne and Air on a G String, this is also Radulovic’s debut as a viola soloist.

In the early twentieth century, two brothers made many ‘startling’ discoveries of lost works of some of the great composers, including Johann Christian Bach’s Viola Concerto. However not all was as it seemed, as it turns out these brothers, Henri and Marius Casadesus were writing the works themselves in the style of their purported composers. Although complete frauds, this does not detract from the interesting compositional take they had on the style of the period. Before I did my research I thought there was something odd but interesting about this concerto and now I know why and it’s worth visiting.
