Vladimir Kranjčević (Zagreb, 1936) graduated from the piano program of the Music Academy in Zagreb. After studying conducting in Zagreb and Monte Carlo, he subsequently obtained his Master’s Degree in Belgrade in 1980.

He has performed around the world both as a pianist and as a conductor, either in solo recitals or with ensembles. There is virtually no Croatian ensemble that he has not conducted, and he also served as the chief conductor to many of them (Vatroslav Lisinski Chamber Ensemble, Croatian Radio Television Choir and Symphony Orchestra, Ivan Goran Kovačić Choir…). Some of the ensembles he frequently works with include the Madlenianum Theatre and Opera from Belgrade and the Slovenian Chamber Choir (with which he recorded 10 albums containing anthological works of Croatian music for choirs). Altogether, he recorded more than 4000 minutes for broadcasting companies, released about 20 LPs and 17 CDs.

He led numerous performances of Croatian music, international opera and oratorio productions, as well as a number of premieres of Croatian composers’ works. He also spent three decades teaching at the Music Academy in Zagreb, won numerous awards, recognitions and decorations in Croatia (more recently the Porin discography award for life-time achievement in 2013).
