composer and pianist

Pavle Cajic is an Australian-Serbian pianist and composer of contemporary classical music. Their instrumental music celebrates the beauty of nature and human experience, in works infused with narrative and story-telling.

Pavle's music has been described as ‘passionate’ and 'colourful and dramatic' by Pulitzer-Prize winning composers John Corigliano and Melinda Wagner, and having an ‘impressive range of expression… and power of invention’ by acclaimed American composer David Conte. His musical language draws eclectic influences from sources including Western Baroque and Classical-period music, Late Romantic forms and harmony, contemporary experimental harmony, Jazz and Latin American music, and traditional Chinese music.

As a freelance artist in Sydney, Australia, Pavle has been involved in multiple initiatives that use music as a vehicle for social change or justice, including the Sydney-based musical charity Voces Caelestium, and the musician-artist group Dreambox Collective. Pavle has performed extensively with flutist Chloe Chung as the Sidere Duo.

Pavle holds a Bachelors degree in piano performance from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Australia and is currently completing a Masters in music composition studying under David Conte at the San Francisco Conservatory in California, USA.

Pavle would like to acknowledge the traditional owners of the land on which he has written music, the Gadigal people of the Eora nation, and pay respect to all elders past, present and emerging.
