S&F has been nominated for “The City of Belgrade Award”

Agency Scholz & Friends has been nominated for “The City of Belgrade Award” in the category of “longlasting performance and contribution to the development of Belgrade” for the project “The Unheard song”, when, on the initiative of the Agency, the last piece by Stevan Mokranjac was discovered, completed and premierly performed. This is the first time that an agency has received a nomination for this award.

The sole copy of the original composition, which Mokranjac began composing a few days before his death in 1914, remained lost in the archives for decades. On the back of the forgotten copy, dated from 1941, instructions were left for a future composer who would one day continue and finish the last piece of the famous composer.

The composition was finished and brought to life by one of our most famous composers of contemporary classical music, Aleksandra Vrebalov, who resides and works in New York City.

At the world premiere, held in Belgrade on Decembre 12th 2015 at The Kolarac Grand Concert Hall, the song that had waited 101 years to be heard, was performed for the first time in collaboration with The Choir of Radio Television of Serbia and maestro Bojan Suđić.

“The City of Belgrade Award” has been established in order to acknowledge the most significant contributions to the city in the fields of art, science, medicine, architecture and urbanism, journalism, education and sport. The Award is presented annually during the “Days of Belgrade” celebration, held through April 16-19.

Scholz & Friends Belgrade is the only German communications group in the region. Scholz & Friends Belgrade presents a unique combination of German efficiency and local creativity and is dedicated to creating cultural content of lasting value for the whole community.
