Pedja Muzijevic

Pedja Muzijevic

Pianist Pedja Muzijevic has defined his career with creative programming, unusual combinations of new and old music, and lasting collaborations with artist and ensembles. His peripatetic and seemingly endless performance schedule takes him world-wide, with orchestra, solo recital, chamber music, and festival appearances. He has toured with Mikhail Baryshnikov and the white Oak Dance Project throughout the U.S. and as artistic administrator of the Baryshnikov Arts Foundation was instrumental in starting the Ringling International Arts Festival here in Sarasota, as well as performing for the Festival.

Muzijevic was born in Sarajevo and studied at the Academy of Music in Zagreb before coming to the United States in 1984 to complete his music education at the Curtis Institute of Music and the Juilliard School.

He returns to Music Mondays after an absence of several years, and we will all be enchanted by his many tales of travels as well as his playing.
