Born 1973 in Belgrade (Serbia), based in Berlin composer Aleksandar Kostić has been involved in music from an early age.
His engagement with both classical and contemporary works carries forward influences from European, traditional and spiritual music. Mr. Kostić was developing his compositional skills under guidance and supervision of his mentor and one of the first Serbian female composers D.M.A. Mirjana Sistek Djordjević (1935-2017).
First public performance of Kostić’s work was in 1999 when his symphonic suite ‚Deus Absconditus‘ was premiered in Belgrade. Later, this composition was recorded with the Serbian Symphonic Radio Orchestra to be published by Serbian National Record company PGP-RTS, in 2004. His vocal – instrumental, piece ‚Song of Songs‘, composed on the lyrics of the old testament poem by the King Solomon that goes by the same name, had its world premiere in the Actor’s Church (Covent Garden) London in March 2010.
