He is known for his classic arrangements, such as the baroque versions of the songs by The Beatles and Elvis Presley. In 2004, he recorded all the national anthems of the world which was then used by the Athens Olympic Committee as music for the Olympic Games medal ceremony. His triple CD “Janacek Operatic Orchestral Suites” is one of the top-10 classical CDs in 2009. He currently lives and works in New York.

Muzikon is a multimedia chamber orchestra from Belgrade, which promotes quality, excellence and creativity, with a special emphasis on the original promotion and emancipation of all aspects of concert performance.
