About us

Ensemble for Different New Music (ADNM) is a multi-keyboard ensemble founded in 1977 in Belgrade/Serbia. Created by Miroslav Miša Savić, Miloš Raičković, Milimir Drašković, Lazarov Miodrag Pashu and Vladimir Tošić - a group of strong-minded young composers who were not interested in following their older colleagues' steps, this ensemble has from its very beginning attracted attention as a collective of composers and pianists dedicated to minimalism, post minimalism and performance art. After the initial concert held at Student's Cultural Center in Belgrade in 1977, ADNM has performed in numerous festivals in former Yugoslavia, (e.g. Music Biennale in Zagreb, Contemporary Music Festival in Opatia/Croatia, BITEF in Belgrade) as well as in Graz (Austria), Essen and Frankfurt (Germany), Trieste (Italy) and Budapest (Hungary). During the 70's the ensemble recorded various programs for radio and television, and has in 1981 recorded what is regarded a milestone LP record, featuring pieces by Robert Moran and Milimir Drašković.

Among many performers that have taken part in ADNM concerts and/or recording sessions are: Nada Kolundžija, Miroslav Miša Savić, Dragoljub Ilke Ilić, Slobodan Todorović, Branka Parlić, Lidija Stanković, Ksenija Zečević†, Miodrag Lazarov Pashu, Vladimir Tošić, Milimir Drašković†, Nebojša Brajović (Moris Witt), Paul Pignon, Olgica Antić†, Anđelka (Marjanović) Đorđević†, Aleksandar Damnjanović, Dubravka Kovačević, Miloš Petrović†, Istra Pečvari, Mila Lacković†, Dragana Kosić, Marjan Šijanec, Rade Bulatović, Nenad Jelić, Tatjana Šurev, Miroslav Karlović, Đorđe Gavrilović, Veljko Nikolić†, Tatjana Tasić, Borislav Pavićević, Margita Stefanović†, Nataša Bogojević, Branka Žiravac, Isidora Žebeljan†, Jovana Đorđević, Katarina Radovanović i Miloš Raičković.
