Internationally acclaimed violinist, Adrej Kurti was born in Belgrade, Serbia, where he began his violin career in the studio of professor Djula Tesenji. He continued his studies in Moscow “Tchaikovsky” Conservatory in the studios of professors Levon Ambartsumian and Zorya Schikmuraeva. Kurti finished his graduate studies in the University of Georgia, where he received a doctorate degree in violin performance. He was a recipient of five first prizes in competitions in Florida and Georgia, and a finalist of the MTNA (Music Teacher National Association) Competition in 1998. In 2000, Kurti became a recording artist for classical label Blue Griffin Recording, for which he later recorded 6 Sonatas for Violin by Eugene Ysaye, op. 27. Classics Today and American Record Guide wrote: “his near-perfect intonation, assured technique (check out the Third Sonata’s climatic double stops), and intelligent shaping of polyphony” … “Kurti is an excellent violinist and musician, very musical and stylish, and these are some of the better performances of these sonatas that I have ever heard… you couldn’t go wrong if you had this disc as your only recording of these works.” In 2004, Kusti became a professor of violin at Northwestern State University of Louisiana. He appeared as a soloist with many Symphony Orchestras in the United States, Serbia, Montenegro, Italy, Greece, Russia, France, and Colombia. He also appeared as a chamber performer in Spain, France, Latvia, Canada, Colombia and South Korea. In non-classical music world, Kurti performed and arranged on more than forty albums of popular and modern music, which he recorded for many different music labels in the United States. In November 2019, Kurti was invited to Nashville, USA to perform live in concert several Rock & Roll legends, such as James Burton (Elvis Presley), Dr. Brian May (Queen), Micky Dolenz (The Monkees) Joe Walsh (Eagles).
