Music is my main means of expression and deepest form of communication. As a cellist I perform a wide range of solo and chamber music repertoire for my instrument, but I also always had the need to discover other possibilities of cello sound, feeling that its potential is limitless. This brought me to collaborate with contemporary composers, work with live electronic and inspired me to compose my own pieces for cello.
Through interests other than music itself, like painting, philosophy, psychology, physics etc. I feel like an explorer whose task is to find hidden links and patterns between things that seem unrelated but add up to something recognizable.
Solo cello performance represents the most interesting aspect of my personal fascination with sound. Its challenges differ from those of chamber music performance, among other things in the freedom of expression, but mostly in the way that every microsound and nuance is a part of expression and as such perceived by the audience.

Cello & Piano

Together with extraodinary swiss pianist Pierre Doueihi we perform a special selection from the rich violoncello and piano repertoire ranging from barock to contemporary pieces.

Green Thing Ensemble


GTE is a chamber music group who specializes in performing and recording new music by living composers, and in bringing to light rarely heard 20th century classics.
With flexible formations ranging from solo to large chamber ensembles, GTE functions as performer and presenter. GTE seeks to redefine the concert experience by connecting new works with new listeners.
Aside from regularly commissioning new music, GTE provides professional development support for composers and performers, as well as organizes outreach and learning activities for students of all ages.
Within its varied and imaginative programs, the ensemble explores music from around the world while keeping in touch with the works of composers from their Viennese home.

Cello Studio & VIOMUS

I am also extremely enthusiastic about teaching students through my master classes as well as private lessons in my cello studio in Vienna. I have taught master classes in Vienna (e. g. Razumovsky Musik Akademie), Italy, Germany, USA, China…

In 2015 I started the VIOMUS (Vienna Online Music School) where I teach students from all over the world through Skype or WeChat.




It is rare that a musical coming-together begins as promisingly as it did for Ana Topalovic and Nikola Djoric. The cello and accordion, strings and buttons, seem to be made for each other, as if each had been yearning for the other. Ana, who had long been nursing the idea of a cello-accordion project, and Nikola, who proved to be the perfect partner for this venture, recognised at once their creative potential as a duo. They wanted to coax an undiscovered combined sound out of their instruments, and with this in mind they produced new arrangements of well-known pieces, which are of particular importance to both of their musical careers.

Their first album ARCORD: Inspired by… songs and dances is full of the musical sophistication and playfulness which comes from two instrumentalists keen to experiment. Their opposing instruments lend a new tonal quality and emotional range to well-known pieces. The cello, whose sound most resembles the human voice, brings a new dimension to the interpretation of the arias. While Nikola Djoric brings hefty pieces such as Beethoven’s 7 Variations to life, his concert accordion playing the piano’s role. The dances and songs on the album are not just inspiration for the two artists. Instead they are given a sound revival by Ana Topalovic and Nikola Djoric – refreshing and self-assured.


Interdisciplinary projects with Rosalie Wanka (dancer, choreographer, artistic director).

DAN_CE_ELLO is a concertante performance with music and dance. Through both choreographed and improvised dance on the contemporary music for cello solo and cello&electronic this duo expresses the movement of sound with special esthetics and language. Visualizing music and its story in time and space, inspiring communication and exploring the art of surprise are just a couple of their motivational triggers.

Premiered in Berio Hall, Wiener Konzerthaus.
