Bradic Srecko

Bradic Srecko

* 1963 

Srecko Bradic (Samobor, 1963) completed his studies at the Department for Music Teachers at the Zagreb Academy of Music, but his music vocation was determinate by study at the Department for Composition at the same Academy, where he earned his degree in the class of Prof. Stanko Horvat.

The following compositions stand out among the author’s early work: Six Bagatelle for piano (1992), Trio for violin, viola and cello (1993), Lost Music for wind quintet (1994) and For strings for string orchestra or twelve soloist string-players (1994). More recent compositions are dedicated primarily to large ensembles. They include Penetration for piano and string orchestra (1993), Credo for soloist, mixed choir and orchestra (1994), Venery for full orchestra (1996) and La Femme for soprano and orchestra (1997). Almost all of Bradic’s compositions have been performed and recorded by Croatian Radio. His works have been performed by ensembles such as the Klima String Quartet, the Russian ensemble Volga Sinfonietta. In January, 1995 the compositions Penetration and Credo were premiered by the Symphony Orchestra and Choir of HRT under the baton of the Italian conductor Paolo Paroni, with pianist Damir Greguric, soprano Martina Zadro and tenor Giovannino Raffaelli. A record of the concert was issued on a CD by the recording company Orfej HRT. In 1997, the Zagreb Philharmonic joined the list of interpreters of Bradic’s compositions with their performance of Venery conducted by Uros Lajovis, and La Femme with Martina Zadro as soloists, conducted by Alexander Rahbari. Bradic was awarded the 1999 Stjepan Sulek Foundation prize for his composition La Femme and the City of Samobor prize for culture in the year 2000. He works at the Zagreb Academy of Music where he lectures in music theory subjects at the Department for Composition and Music Theory.
