Bozo Paradzik

Born in Zagreb, began learning doublebass in 1983 with Tihomir Vidovich in Sarajevo. Already before graduating from the Prague Music Academy he was offered his first position as solo double bass player at the Residentie Orchester, Den Haag, in 1991. He later joined the Radio Symphony Orchestra Stuttgart. Bozo Paradzik is first and foremost known for his solo work. At the age of 16 he made his first recordings for the then Yugoslav broadcasting association. Between 1996 and 2001 Paradzik recorded a series of CDs for the SWR. He achieved worldwide fame with his solo CD for the EMI label, the only CD ever to have been recorded with works for solo double bass. As a soloist Bozo Paradzik has appeared with many orchestras and chamber music partners in the musical centres of Germany, Great Britain, France, the Netherlands, Poland, the Czech Republic and the entire «ex-Yugoslavia». His artistic achievements have been honoured highly, thus Paradzik is the recipient of the rarely awarded Generation Prize of the Prague Music Academy and «Orlando», a prize conferred by the Croatian Radio and Broadcasting Association for the most outstanding appearance at the international summer festival in Dubrovnik in 2002.
