Maja Bogdanović

Maja Bogdanović has seen success in numerous international competitions. She studied cello at the Paris Conservatoire with Michel Strauss and chamber music under Itamar Golan and Pierre-Laurent Aimard. She then went to Berlin to study with Jens-Peter Maintz as well as in many masterclasses. She has performed chamber music at many prestigious concert venues and as soloist with the Zürich Tonhalle Orchestra, the Berlin Symphony Orchestra and the Tokyo Philharmonic. Apart from the conventional cello repertoire, Maja Bogdanović's interests also lie in the music of our time. She has collaborated a good deal with Krzysztof Penderecki, in particular, and was one of the few performers – alongside such prominent musicians as Anna-Sofia Mutter, Yuri Bashmet and Lorin Maazel – invited to appear at Penderecki's 80th birthday celebrations in Warsaw. She has recorded for several labels and plays a cello built by Frenchman Frank Ravatin.
