He studied in a class of leading professors like prof. Darko Karajic, prof. Srdjan Tosic in Belgrade, and prof. Anders Miolin in Zürich, Switzerland. Vojin was perfecting his playing in 2007, 2010, 2014 and 2015 with Maestro Oscar Ghiglia at “Accademia Chigiana” in Siena, Italy, where he received “Diploma d’Onore” for his artistic achievements, as the only guitarist to receive it in the history of this famous Academy. He also attended the Master classes with famous guitar maestros such as Pepe Romero, Leo Brouwer, Hubert Kappel, Zoran Dukić, Dušan Bogdanović, Carlo Marchione, Paul Galbraith, Pavel Steidl and many others.

DISCOGRAPHY

747313390670.jpg

Guitar Recital - Laureate Series. Works by J.S.Bach, M.M.Ponce, G.Regondi, M.Pasieczny.

Vojin Kocic, winner of the 2017 Heinsberg International Guitar Competition, presents a recital that not only covers a wide historical range but also includes some of the most challenging works in the guitar repertoire, of which Ponce’s La Folia variations is considered a veritable Everest to be conquered. Following a long and distinguished tradition, Kocic’s own arrangement of Bach’s Second Violin Partita is crowned by the greatest of Baroque instrumental masterpieces, the monumental Ciaccona, Regondi’s prodigious talent is reflected in his scintillating Introduction et Caprice, while Pasieczny’s Phosphenes was composed as a test piece for a guitar competition.

Recorded in Toronto for Naxos Records, a member of the Naxos Music Group. April 2018.

Guitar Recital - Laureate Series. Works by A. José, I. Albéniz, J.Manén.

Representing three generations of Spanish composers, these works reveal the diversity and depth of the Iberian musical imagination. Albéniz’s Suite is a perennial evocation of Iberian Romanticism that transcribes naturally from piano to guitar, and José’s original and inventive Sonata revives a reputation cut short by the Spanish Civil War. Dedicated to Segovia, Manén’s Fantasia-Sonata is rich in Catalonian sentiment both elegiac and celebratory. Vojin Kocić’s debut recording, ‘and what a debut it is’ (The WholeNote), can be heard on 8.573906.

Recorded in Florida, USA for Naxos Records, a member of the Naxos Music Group. April 2019.
