Srdjan Vukasinovic is one of the leading accordionists today. His fresh, innovative and versatile approach to music has led to a reputation as a great concert master who can always satisfy the curiosity and needs of all different audiences.
As a young musician, he won first prize at one of the most important accordion competitions - the World Trophy in Spain in 1999, thus winning the title of the best accordionist in the world. He has performed as a soloist with orchestras such as the Agrovia Philharmonic, Klassik Nuevo Orchestra, Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra, Zürcher Kammerorchester, Südwestdeutsche Philharmonie and others. In October 2018, he gave a concert with the London Royal Philharmonic and became the first accordion player to perform with this orchestra.
Srdjan Vukasinovic invented the world's first quarter-tone accordion. With this accordion it is possible to play 24 tones in one octave. It also allows you to combine many different tunings simultaneously (for baroque, modern, oriental music, etc.). Srdjan's other innovation is his new accordion brand "Carboneon". This innovative instrument is the first carbon fiber accordion to be made, making Carboneon the lightest accordion in the world.
He studied violin at the P. J. Vejvanovský Conservatory in the years 2009-2015 with prof. Jaroslav Krátký. He regularly participates in violin competitions - in 2011 at the Josef Muzyka International Competition in Nová Paka he received an honorable mention and a year later the 3rd prize. In 2018, he received an honorable mention at the Bohuslav Martinů competition in Prague. Since 2011 he has been a regular participant in master classes prof. Bohuslav Matoušek, with whom he studied at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague. In 2013 and 2015, he became a scholarship holder of the Czech Music Fund Foundation for the Support of Czech Modern Music. In September 2015, he performed solo at the Kroměříž Music Summer festival accompanied by the Moravian Philharmonic Olomouc. In 2018-2019 he completed a year of study at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna with the concertmaster Wiener Symphoniker Jan Pospíchal. He is a member of the Errai piano trio, which regularly performs in the Czech Republic, Germany and Turkey.
