In 2010 he graduated Summa cum laude from the Music Academy in Zagreb where he studied with professor Darko Petrinjak, member of the Zagreb Guitar Trio and one of world’s foremost guitar pedagogues. He received two Rector’s awards (awarded on the University level) and a Dean’s award.During his career Srdjan has won prizes in almost all of the most prestigious international guitar competitions, including third and second prizes in ‘Michele Pittaluga’ in Alessandria, second prizes in ‘Alhambra’, Valencia and ‘Gredos San Diego’, Madrid and first prizes in ‘Fernando Sor’, Rome and ‘Julian Arcas’ in Almeria. In September 2011 Srdjan won the first prize and a special prize for the best interpretation of works by Tarrega in the ‘Francisco Tarrega’ competition in Benicassim, Spain, one of the most important international competitions for classical guitarists, for which he was given an opportunity to record his first CD for the prestigious music label Naxos. This CD was officially released in September 2012. Srđan has won three of the most important national competitions for young musicians: ‘Ferdo Livadic’, ‘Ivo Vuljevic’ and ‘Darko Lukic’ as the only guitarist to do so, since these are competitions open to all instrumentalists and singers.
