AMA Academy Ambassador Nikola Djoric

Vienna-based accordionist Nikola Djoric is considered one of the greatest talents in his field in Austria. Thanks to his great musical devotion and expression on stage, he has already been described as an “accordion poet” (Basellandschaftliche Zeitung).

He achieves, with the sound spectrum of the accordion, new and never before perceived hues in works by Bach, Beethoven, Mozart or Scarlatti, resulting in enthusiastic cheers from the concert audiences of all ages. In various musical formations (among others with Ensemble Wien (Vienna Philharmonic)), with cellist Ana Topalovic (Duo-Arcord) with Signum Saxophone Quartet as well with the singer Juliette Mars (Vienna State Opera) he performed on international stages, such as the Philharmonie in Cologne, Musikverein in Vienna and at the Beethoven Festival in Bonn and convinced both the audience and the critics of his musical excellence.

With the program of the CD „Accordion Album“ (CD off the week on the Vienna Classic Radio Stephansdom), he makes his debut at the Berlin Konzerthaus and at the Gasteig in Munich.

Important competitive achievements in his career are, among others, the first prize of the Fidelio University competition at Vienna Conservatory in 2009 and 2011. This competition offers high visibility in Austria and leads to numerous international engagements.

Nikola Djoric studied at the Vienna Conservatory with Svetlana Kravchenko, Jovica Djordjevic, and then Grzegorz Stopa and graduated in 2013 with the Master of Arts.

Contemporary music is also of great interest to him. He works with many composers and has performed premieres of works by Johanna Doderer, Akos Banlaky, Gabrielle Proy, Margareta Ferek-Petrić, Armin Sanayei, Marc Frieden, Ricardo Tovar, Elzbieta Wiedner-Zajac, Adrian Artacho, Wen Liu, Alexander Chernyshikov and Lukas Neudinger.

He was honored to receive an  Ambassadorship from the renowned Amadeus International School Vienna in 2018. More information on his website
