Aleksandra Vrebalov’s music ranges from concert music and opera to music for modern dance and film, and has been performed by Kronos Quartet, Serbian National Theater, English National Ballet, Belgrade Philharmonic, and many others. Vrebalov’s string quartet …hold me, neighbor, in this storm… was commissioned by Carnegie Hall and premiered by Kronos Quartet. As a Serbian expat Vrebalov is the recipient of the Golden Emblem from the Serbian Ministry of Foreign Affairs for lifelong dedication and contribution to her native country’s culture. The world premiere of Vrebalov’s newest work is commissioned by the CMA in partnership with the Cleveland Foundation, inspired directly by the museum’s collection.
