Samir Fejzic, jazz pianist with a classical education.
Samir Fejzic, composer and pianist, born in Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina), studied composition at Music Academy in Sarajevo, where he graduated in 1998. Currently he teaches renaissance and baroque counterpoint at Secondary Music School in Sarajevo. His work is characterized by different influences, a variety of styles and the constant effort of assimilation of classical vocal styles, traditional folk music and contemporary techniques into his compositions under the personal perspective. His interest for vocal music resulted in the writing of the book Vokalni kontrapunkt, which he finished in September 2003 and was published by Svjetlost in Sarajevo. He is also the co-author of the book of Bosnian Songs for Voice and Piano. Simultaneously to composing and lecturing, Samir performs as a jazz pianist and has up-to-date recorded a couple of TV shows (“Jazz in action” for Bosnia and Herzegovina TV), three CDs from which he would single out the album Vintage, performed with the Swedish singer Karolina Ollinen. A remarkable part of his energy is focused on preserving the traditional Bosnian musical heritage: he arranged and stylized numerous traditional Bosnian tunes. For his work he got recognition of a wide audience at home and abroad and received several awards, the most important Charter, in 2001, attributed by the Association of Music Educators Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. 2008th he founded Samir Fejzic Band, and with that quartet, 2009th, he published an album Bosnian Songs For Voice And Trio, published by Yaman doo.
