He was an artistic director of the Novi Sad Music Festival where he performed with acclaimed artists (V. Afanassiev, K. Bogino, A. Madzar, P. Vernikov, M. Jashvili, JM Phillips-Varjabedian...). Significant Yugoslav composers (Despic, Eric, Suklar, Stefanovic) dedicated him their compositions. He was honored by the Association of Yugoslav Composers for his exceptional contribution to the development of Yugoslav music. As a soloist he had concerts in England, France, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Russia. Since 1999 he has been living in Hungary, where he teaches cello at the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music.
