Isidora Timotijevic

Viola

Isidora Timotijevic was born in Belgrade (Serbia) in 1997, and received her first violin lessons at the age of seven at the “Kosta Manojlovic” music school in Zemun. At the age of 14, she switched to the viola, and was tutored by Tomislav Milosevic. Since 2015, she has been studying for a bachelor degree with Professor Thomas Riebl at the Mozarteum University Salzburg. She also receives a scholarship from the International Academy of Music in Liechtenstein, where she participates in the intensive music weeks.

The young violist has won numerous prizes at national and international competitions, both as a soloist and as a chamber musician.

Isidora Timotijevic has been a member of orchestras including the CEI Youth Orchestra, the Belgrade Symphony Orchestra and the Belgrade Youth Philharmonic Orchestra, and has played in several other chamber ensembles. She has already performed with the “Deutsche Kammerakademie Neuss am Rhein”, the “Salzburg Chamber Soloists” and the “Camerata Salzburg”, and has performed in concerts in Brazil, China, Germany, Hong Kong, Peru, South Korea, Switzerland and Austria. Together with some fellow students, she recently founded the “Beija-flor Quartet”. In 2016 and 2017, Isidora Timotijevic participated in the chamber music festival “Musique à Marsac” in France, and in 2017 she took part in the “Eggenfelden klassisch” music festival, and in the FESTIVAL NEXT GENERATION in Bad Ragaz. The young musician’s interest in Baroque music has led her to take part in an orchestral project with Marco Testori. She also plays in two string quartets and is a member of the ENSEMBLE ESPERANZA, which is made up of scholarship holders from the International Academy of Music in Liechtenstein.

Isidora Timotijevic plays a Bernd Hiller viola from 2015.
