LAZAR NOVKOV & Frame Orchestra
Born 1977 in Novi Sad. As a child, he spontaneously showed his talent singing in his neighborhood. That’s when he was spotted by eminent music experts who then shaped his musicality at the prestigious music school “Isidor Bajić” where he finished high school in the instrumental department for accordion, and then went on to the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad, where he developed his skills in playing the piano, solfeggio, conducting, arranging and composition. In his work he gives way to the influences of a variety of musical genres, and gathers those musical compositions which nurtured the blues-jazz, world and experimental music. A composer and an instrumentalist specializing in keyboard instruments, Lazar boasts a vast number of performances and collaborations with various bands as well as working on about twenty studio albums, and making a contribution to theatre and film music. In late 2010, he gathered the acoustic ensemble Frame Orchestra that performs Lazar’s original music, and with whom he still successfully performs.The summer of 2012 saw the release of “Year”, the ensemble’s first album.2016 is expected to see a new release, Lazar Novkov & Frame Orchestra’s second album. It is the kind of music that stems from real experiences and creative needs, while his ideas correspond to modern music trends.
