Three cycles of meditative piano pieces

1. "Tseria"

2. "The Lighthouse"

3. "Sappho`s Dream"

​

1. "La Sirena"

2. "Chiostro del paradiso"

3. "Ischia" 

4. "Procida"

5. "Capri"

​

1. "Yr"

2. "Nidelva"

According to the idea of the author, this atmospheric, meditative piano music represents the silence colored by the sound in a most subtle way.

​

The first cycle consists of the pieces "Tseria", "The Lighthouse" and "Sappho`s Dream". They all carry certain nuances of the Mediterranean folklore.

​

The second cycle is entirely dedicated to the Italian region of Campania and the Author`s strong fascination about it.

​

"La Sirena"

One of the ancient legend about the origin of the city of Naples says that is the siren of Parthenope, desperate because her song failed to enchant Odysseus, jumped from the wall to the sea. The waves pushed her body out to the shore where today is situated city of Naples. It is believed that the bay of Naples has the shape of the body of the famous Siren, and the Neapolitans themselves call Naples the city of Parthenope.

​

"Chiostro del paradiso"

The garden of the famous cathedral in Amalfi, a pieceful place that reflects the beauty and harmony. 

​

"Ischia", "Procida" and "Capri"

These three short compositions are named after the islands at the entrance to the Bay of Naples. Although these islands belong to the same archipelago, each one has it`s own story. Their geological origins are not the same, traditions on them are not the same, each one has it`s own dialect, the architecture and the kitchen are also different.

Ischia is the island of rich flora and numerous thermal springs, and its famous landmark is the medieval Aragonese Castle. Procida is a little, colorful, picturesque fishing island where the famous movies Il Postino and Mysterious Mr. Ripley were filmed. Capri is the island of flowers, the azure sea, small villages and their warm and friendly inhabitants. 

​

The third cycle is inspired by Norway.

 

"Yr"

Yr is the Norwegian word for a kind of snow that one can only see and experience in Scandinavia. It consists of frozen microparticles that are neither snow nor rain and are carried by the north wind over deep Norwegian forests.

​

"Nidelva"

This composition is dedicated to the picturesque Norwegian city of Trondheim and it`s two enchanting sights: the calm and mighty Nidelva river and the monumental Nidaros cathedral, the northernmost Gothic construction in Europe.

Extremely contemplative, piano music of Kosta Jevtic invites the listener to a meditative immersion into the sound that subtly colors the silence.

​

Believing that a classical music scene today is in need for a new wave of liberation of creative potentials, Kosta Jevtic, a classically trained Serbian pianist, in the year 2017 steps out of his classical repertoire and begins presenting his own music for solo piano. 

His style combines the elements of post-minimalism, classical music and traditional music of Balkans and the Mediterranean region. 

His music insights are gained during his studies at the Academy of Art in Novi Sad, Serbia, in the classes of maestro Kemal Gekic and Alan Fraser, as well as through two decades long experience in collaboration with various instrumentalists and singers. He now sublimes these insights into his own personal musical statements, striving for this goal: the art that is here to fascinate and thus to liberate.

Kosta teaches at the Music Department of the Academy of Arts, University of Novi Sad. 

He is the initiator and co-founder of the Piano City Novi Sad festival that attracts hundreds of pianists of various genres and profiles to the city of Novi Sad every September.
