Based in Paris, Warner Classics and its sister label Erato comprise one of the world’s top classical music recording companies. Their artist rosters cover all classical music styles.

Radulović studied music in Serbia before joining the Paris Conservatoire. Now based in France, he specializes in Slavic music as well as contemporary rock and classical music.

He is the founder of The Devil’s Trills and Double Sens ensembles, and collaborated with the latter for his debut album with Warner Classics.

 

 

This album comprises traditional music works from over 20 countries that were arranged for him and Double Sens. This project began in the 2020 lockdowns and invites listeners out of isolation on a musical journey around the world.

Radulović’s career took off in 2006 when he stepped in for Maxim Vengerov on short notice and gave a critically acclaimed performance of Beethoven’s Violin Concerto with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France and Myung-Whun Chung.

"I am thrilled and honoured to join the Warner Classics Family," said Radulović in a statement. "The Warner team is hugely inspiring, and together we are creating new ideas for exciting projects that match my vision of music making in this period of my life."

"In welcoming Nemanja Radulović to Warner Classics, we are welcoming an old friend," said Alain Lanceron, President of Warner Classics. "I first met Nemanja in the very early days of his career, when he was studying at the Paris Conservatoire with the distinguished violinist and teacher Patrice Fontanarosa.

"We have kept in touch over the years and I am delighted that now is the time for him to join the label," he continued. "His virtuosity and artistry are, of course, superlative, but he is also open to new possibilities and ready, willing and able to reach the widest possible audience for classical music. Nemanja Radulović is a true musical personality."

Warner Classics exclusively record artists such as Renaud Capuçon, Gautier Capuçon, Alexandre Tharaud, the Quatuor Ébène, Beatrice Rana, Emmanuel Pahud, Vilde Frang, and Augustin Hadelich.
