  • Biography

    Dimitrije Vasiljević is a New York-based award-winning pianist and composer who is performing extensively in New York City jazz clubs and will have his debut at Carnegie Hall in March 2014. Jean-Michel Pilc, an accomplished pianist and Dimitrije’s mentor, describes him as: “Dimitrije is a rare example of a musician whose qualities – sensibility, virtuosity, harmonic and melodic invention – all converge towards the same point: a music of deep and rewarding beauty. His latest CD is a brilliant demonstration of music making at the highest level.”

    In April 2013 Dimitrije released his debut album as a leader "The Path of Silvan" consisting entirely of his original compositions and the next album for solo piano is expected in early 2014. In his music, Dimitrije combines the gentle flavor of European jazz with intricate musical landscapes full of exotic rhythms and sophisticated harmony. This multi-talented pianist is today among the most exciting new artists on the NYC jazz scene.

    From his native Serbia, where he was a member of prominent jazz ensembles and performed extensively throughout Europe, Dimitrije’s journey has taken him to Berklee College of Music in Boston where he received a number of prestigious awards including the Jazz Performance Award and Piano Department Achievement Award. Dimitrije is currently completing a master's degree in Jazz Performance at NYU where he is also an adjunct professor of jazz.

    Prior to moving to New York City, Dimitrije has headlined performances at many jazz venues and festivals in Europe among which are the Norrtelje Jazzdagar (Sweden), the Miskolc and the Bohem Jazz Festivals (Hungary), the Gmunden Festival (Austria) and the Montreux Jazz Festival (Switzerland), where in 2008 he was selected as one of twelve finalists to compete at the prestigious "Montreux Solo Jazz Piano Competition” – and won both third jury prize and the audience prize. Dimitrije performed with the Alex Pinter Quintet alongside drummer Klemens Marktl.

    With this quintet he recorded the album "Beantown Experience" for the Austrian label Extraplatte. More recently, Dimitrije has played and recorded with Joe Lovano's NYU Artist Ensemble.

    Dimitrije Vasiljević's music can be described as an original music mixture that incorporates modern jazz and traditional Balkan music resulting in a perfect synthesis of modern jazz and world music. Drawing on mythology and the past for his inspiration, Dimitrije seamlessly combines his talents as pianist, composer and arranger to create his original musical expression and contemporary sound.
