LAUREATE OF THE ENTIRE COMPETITION – AWARD OF PROF. DEJAN MIHAILOVIĆ

The competition of string players ‘Golden steps’, whose aim is first of all to recognize, systematically monitor and improve young talented string players, is a realization of a wish of Dejan Mihailović. During many decades of outstanding professional engagement Prof. Dejan Mihailović insisted on the importance of creativity, performing individuality, uniqueness and expressive interpretation as essential values of a musician. ‘Golden steps’, the name for a collection of miniatures for young violinists, whose author was professor Živorad Grbić, inspired professor Mihailović to give the competition this symbolic name as it suggests a road of dedication, love and determination that every artist must take during his creative development and a road which is fully recognizable in the form of this competition.

As a person who has dedicated his whole life to research and to stimulating creativity, Prof. Mihailović is certainly the brains behind the idea that was growing in the minds of Valjevo’s string players and which came to life through the first ‘Golden Steps’ in May 2016 . For that reason the award, Laureate of the Entire Competition, will bear his name.
