Serbian-born composer Milica Paranosic’s new virtuosic violin & piano arrangement of the traditional Macedonian circle dance: Čoček.
Recorded live on the 15th of March, 2018 by violinist Lara St John and pianist Matt Herskowitz – at the Crypt Sessions in Harlem, New York City.
“I basically took a 16 bar traditional dance and built a spirited, engaging celebration of life around it …” Milica has told The Violin Channel.
“This is the type of music that should be played at Madison Square Garden before basketball games … I desperately want whatever is labeled as classical music to lose its academic-ness …” she has said.
