Jug Marković (RS, 1987) was born in Belgrade where he graduated at the Faculty of Philosophy and afterwards at the Faculty of Music Art. His music was performed within important music festivals in Europe such as “Donaueschinger Musiktage” and “Festival d’Aix-en-Provence”. Marković is the winner of 3rd Anton Matasovsky Composers Competition in Vienna
He writes : “Jug believes in non-cerebral, impulsive, passion driven composing. His firm and unquestioned passion for music can be heard in his almost eclectic style where every piece
openly draws energy from a certain source from the past. One could label it as an “archaeology of sound” where you, being fascinated by a certain sound object from the pasts, let it overwhelm and influence you.”Troposfera”. In 2017, he is among the 33 composers to whom Divertimento Ensemble commissioned a variation from Beethoven’s Diabelli variations for the ensemble’s 40th birthday.
