Prof. Xenia Jankovic

Prof. Xenia Jankovic was born in 1958 into a Serbian-Russian family of musicians.

Fascinated by the cello, she started to play at the age of six and gave her debut with the Belgrade Philharmonic when she was only nine.

Two years later she received a state scholarship to the special school of the Moscow Conservatory and was a pupil of Stefan Kalianov and Mstislav Rostropovich. Further studies were with Pierre Fournier in Switzerland and Andre Navarra in Ger¬many.

In 1981, Xenia Jankovic gained international acclaim and recognition as the first prize winner of the prestigious Gaspar Cassado Competition in Florence. Close work with Sandor Vegh and Gyorgy Sebok was a source of profound musical and personal inspiration.

Xenia Jankovic's solo performances with big orchestras including the Philharmonia Orchestra London, the Budapest Philharmonic, the Radio Orchestras of Berlin, Copen¬hagen and Madrid as well as her recitals in Paris, London, Berlin and Moscow have been described as deeply moving and unforgettable.

As an active chamber musician she played with Gidon Kremer, Andras Schiff, Tabea Zimmermann. She is regularly invited to worldwide international festivals.

Xenia Jankovic is one of the most interesting cellists of our time. Since 1990 she has been Professor for cello at the Musikhochschule in Würzburg.
