Goran Kostić, principal double bass
Goran Kostić, born in Belgrade/Serbia, completed his studies with Prof. Klaus Trumpf in Munich. In addition to his diverse orchestral activities, his affinity for chamber music and solo playing led to a professorship for chamber music at the University in Kragujevac/Serbia in 2009 as well as numerous master classes and concerts throughout Europe. As a result of his artistic activity and many years of research in the field of solo playing, he received his PhD from the University in Belgrade in 2017.
Goran Kostić focuses on considering the double bass as an equal solo instrument of the string instrument family. This gave birth to the idea of "Double Bass & Rhodes", for which several pieces have already been provided by composers. It is 'classical' music of the 21st century, but strongly influenced by American popular forms of the 20th century - jazz and rock.
