Orchestra Director

Principal Guest Conductor

Maestro Bojan Suđić, the most distinguished Serbian conductor today, has been, for more than a decade, the music director of the Music Production Department of Radio Television of Serbia (RTS) and the chief conductor of its two renowned ensembles – the RTS Symphony Orchestra and the RTS Choir. As a professor of conducting at the Faculty of Music, Belgrade University of Arts, he is also the chief conductor of the Symphony Orchestra of this academic institution.

His artistic and professional career has been built upon a complex and rich repertoire
consisting of symphonic, choral, opera and ballet music. He has also become celebrated for directing and conducting large scale on-stage concerts, numbering more than five hundred musician performers – Symphony No. 8 by Gustav Mahler, Requiems by Hector Berlioz and Giuseppe Verdi, Carmina Burana by Carl Orff, etc., as well as for performing concerts in front of large audiences, some exceeding ten thousand people, with the intention of introducing and presenting classical music to broader audiences.
Maestro Suđić is especially dedicated to the promotion of contemporary music. He has
conducted premiere performances of numerous pieces by local and international composers, many of which were dedicated to him. He is particularly devoted to promoting the best young artists by giving them important space within the concert season of the Music Production ensembles.

Upon winning the first prize at the Yugoslav Competition of Music Artists in Zagreb in 1989 (later renamed to Lovro fon Matačić International Competition of Young Conductors) maestro Bojan Suđić expanded his professional career to Europe and Latin America, collaborating with more than fifty orchestras and numerous choirs. In addition to being a guest conductor of the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra and the Novosibirsk Philharmonic Orchestra, symphony orchestras from Odense, Turku, Klagenfurt, the Helsinki Opera and many other renowned ensembles, M°Suđić has for the past ten years also established and maintained regular collaboration of such nature with the Montenegrin Symphony Orchestra and the OFUNAM from Mexico.

He was the resident conductor of the Royal Swedish Opera, Stockholm, for five years, during which he conducted more than 150 opera and ballet performances. Throughout his career he has also held positions of the chief conductor and general music director of the Opera of the National Theatre in Belgrade, as well of the permanent guest conductor of the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra. Starting from the season 2018/19, maestro Bojan Suđić will become the principal guest conductor of the UNIMI Orchestra, Milan.

Maestro Suđić has collaborated with a number of the most prominent international artists such as Maxim Vengerov, Vadim Repin, Nigel Kennedy, Ivo Pogorelić, Denis Matsuev, Nikolai Lugansky, Michel Bérof, Shlomo Mintz, Emmanuel Pahud, Placido Domingo, Željko Lučić, Nemanja Radulović and many others.

Serbian music critics defned him as “the leading name among conductors in Serbian music” (Sonja Marinković, Belgrade), while Finnish critic Mats Liljeros (Huvudstadsbladet, Helsinki) described Maestro Suđić in following words: “…a natural talent with an exceptional style and one of the most beautiful techniques I have ever seen.”
