Milana Stojadinović-Milić

Milana Stojadinović-Milić (Belgrade, Serbia), composer and associate professor at the Music Theory Department of the Faculty of Music in Belgrade. Her works, especially her symphonic and chamber works, have been premièred and performed multiple times in festivals, concerts, and radio and television broadcasts in Serbia and abroad. With her piece Aurora borealis – simfonijska slika (Aurora borealis – A Symphonic Scene), she participated in the international project Savremena muzika Balkana (Contemporary Balkan Music). An entry on her appears in seven editions of Who Is Who in Classical Music, a lexicon published by Europa Publications (UK).

Tango per tre for a traditional chamber ensemble – piano trio – is one of my five pieces inspired by tango music. It is also an homage to Astor Piazzolla, whose Oblivion resonates throughout the piece, just thinly camouflaged by my music, as a varied theme that unpretentiously and joyfully entices THREE instrumentalists to ‘dance’. The piece was written at the incentive of pianist Katarina Radovanović Jeremić, to whom it is also dedicated, as part of her artistic doctoral project ‘Klavirski trio u srpskoj muzici posle 1970. godine’ (The Piano Trio in Serbian Music after 1970).
