LeitmotivArts' Story LeitmotivArts was created in 2013 by an experienced talent management professional and avid music and poetry enthusiast, with a mission to represent, manage and promote the highest quality artistic talent as well as to provide professional services to international artists. Our focus is on the marketing and production development services to a select roster of talented musicians, as well as writers, actors, designers and other artists. As an artist representative, LeitmotivArts is dedicated to supporting upcoming and established music artists on their path to success. It offers career management services and guidance at an independent and personalized level and event booking for entertainment, while using music and the arts to bring people together, one note at a time. Through artist management and development, LeitmotivArts nurtures emerging musicians from the ground up: guiding them through recording and album releases, internet and radio promotion, marketing campaigns and touring. We are proud of our achievements so far, in particular those of Dimitrije Vasiljevic, talented jazz pianist and composer who released his debut album in April 2013 and is rapidly taking the NYC jazz scene with upcoming appearances at various New York City venues as well as a Carnegie Hall debut in spring of 2014. LeitmotivArts’ believes in the community-building power of arts and music, which, when channeled in a right way, brings out the best in people and motivates us to do good. The nexus between culture, art, music and development is a powerful vehicle with which to help steer our lives in a different direction and make a positive difference in the world. Artistic expression, and especially music as a universal language, is interwoven with the fabric of our lives for centuries and can bring virtual strangers together in shared moments of connectivity. Culture – meaning music, film, theatre, literature, digital arts – can be married with development to offer an alternative tool for change and expression of freedom, and also as a factor for social stability and advancement. We salute the artists for their creativity and influence on culture worldwide. Their songwriting, recordings and live performances are indelible contributions to the history of music and LeitmotivArts is privileged to play a part in that. Integrity in business dealings, a clear-cut understanding of clients' needs, passion and determination to make a difference guarantee LeitmotivArts continued success in the future.

Mission: "Using music and the arts to bring people together, one note at a time, I believe in the community-building power of arts and music, which, when channeled in a right way, brings out the best in people and motivates us to do good. The nexus between culture, art, music and development is a powerful vehicle with which to help steer our lives in a different direction and make a positive difference in the world. Artistic expression, and especially music as a universal language, is interwoven with the fabric of our lives for centuries and can bring virtual strangers together in shared moments of connectivity. Culture – meaning music, film, theatre, literature, digital arts – can be married with development to offer an alternative tool for change and expression of freedom, and also as a factor for social stability and advancement. It is often said that music is the most universal language, and for me jazz in particular is the most universal and the most accepting musical dialect. For me jazz represents more than music – it is a form of dialogue that knows no boundaries and unites people of different cultures, religions and nationalities. To me jazz represents freedom of expression and tolerance, spontaneity and improvisation. Its beats are recognizable and yet, like the world around us, jazz is ever changing and evolving. Jazz draws on different national and local music cultures, it honors and respects the past while at the same time provides room for innovation and creativity. As the American trombonist J.J. Johnson nicely said: “Jazz is restless. It won't stay put and it never will.” Danijela Milic, founder (interview with UNESCO http://www.unesco.org/new/fileadmin/MULTIMEDIA/HQ/ERI/downloads/IJD2014_OrganizersItw_USA.pdf ) Based in New York City, LeitmotivArts was created with a mission to represent, manage and promote the highest quality artistic talent as well as to provide professional services to international artists. Our focus is on the marketing and production development services to a select roster of talented musicians, as well as writers, actors, designers and other artists.

"Nije dovoljno biti samo nadaren da se postane pisac. Da bi se napisalo knjigu treba biti čovek" reči su američkog knjizevnika Ralfa Valda Emersona.

Kad smo kod velikih ljudi i pisaca, na danasnji dan 8. maja 1960. godine u Sarajevu rođen je jedan od najznačajnijih savremenih srpskih pisaca Vladimir Pistalo. Među njegova najpoznatija ostvarenja spadaju poetske proze Slikovnica, Manifesti, Čajevi Marsa / Noći, zbirke priča Kraj veka, Vitraž u sećanju, Priče iz celog sveta i romani Milenijum u Beogradu, Venecija, Tesla, portret među maskama (za koju je dobio NIN-ovu nagradu), Sunce ovog dana, pismo Andriću.

Nakon velikog uspeha kod nas i u svetu romana Tesla, portret među maskama (16 prevoda) i Milenijum u Beogradu (7 prevoda) i nedavno izašlog romana Sunce ovog dana, pismo Andriću, koji je za veoma kratko vreme postao ključan za razumevanje našeg Nobelovca, pre par nedelja izasla je i Pištalova najnovija knjiga Značenje Džokera.

***U Njujorku promovisana knjiga "Sunce ovog dana-pismo Andriću"***

Posle nastupa u Kongresnoj Biblioteci i u Smitsonian Institutu u Vašingtonu, najprevođeniji srpski pisac, Vladimir Pištalo ponovo se obratio čitaocima na njujorškom Kolumbija Univerzitetu 8. februara 2019. Na Harimanovom Institutu Kolumbija Univerziteta, na koji dolaze strani državnici, predstavljena je knjiga "Sunce ovog Dana: Pismo Andriću".

Gosta je najavila organizator večeri Danijela Milić, osnivač LeitmotivArts-a iza koje stoje mnogobrojni događaji koji imaju za cilj promovisanje naše umetnosti i kulture u dijaspori. Moderator razgovora Aleksandar Bošković, lektor za srpski jezik na Kolumbiji, osvrnuo se na autorovu zanimljivu biografiju kao i veliki doprinos srpskoj književnosti.

U sali u kojoj se tražila stolica više, pored studenata bio je prisutan i znatan broj umetnika, diplomatskog kora, sveštenstva i prijatelja pisane reči. Veče je proteklo u prisnoj i neposrednoj atmosferi. Publici je bilo interesantno da čuje perspektivu nekoga ko je došao iz Srbije u SAD i predaje američku istoriju dok u svojim knjigama pravi osvrt na velikane srpske istorije poput Nikole Tesle i Iva Andrića. Rasprodati su svi doneseni primerci Pištalovog romana Tesla, Portret Među Maskama na srpskom i engleskom jeziku, a najveće interesovanje je vladalo za njegov najnoviji roman "Sunce Ovog Dana" kojim je promenio čitanje Andrića. Organizator večeri je morala da naruči još više knjiga da bi zadovoljila prisutne čitaoce. Vladimir Pištalo autor je 12 knjiga i brojnih eseja. Od 1993. godine živi u SAD gde radi kao profesor istorije.

Ritam Pištalovog čitanja na srpskom, po sopstvenom priznanju, zaintrigirao je čak i posetioce koji ne govore naš jezik. Odgovarajući na pitanje iz publike, autor je rekao da su veliki ljudi, kao što su Andrić i Tesla, sve što su radili radili i za nas, pokazujući nam svojim primerom koliki je raspon ljudskog.

#TONIGHT Vladimir Pistalo at Columbia University! Address: Marshall D. Shulman Seminar Room, Room 1219 IAB, 420 West 118th St. NYC.

LeitmotivArts is pleased to invite you to its first event of 2019. Join us for an evening with the award-winning Serbian author Vladimir Pistalo and presentation of his new book Sunce Ovog Dana: Pismo Andriću (The Sun of This Day: a letter to Ivo Andrić) on Friday, February 8, 2019 at 6pm.

This event is realized in collaboration with The Harriman Institute at Columbia University, the East Central European Center, the Njegos Endowment for Serbian Language and Culture, and LeitmotivArts.

Ivo Andrić (1892 – 1975) was a Yugoslav novelist, poet and short story writer who won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1961. Pištalo's conversation with Ivo Andrić is a conversation with the tradition. It shows us a different Andrić, more emotional, more playful, more passionate. It is also a dialogue between two moments in history: the decolonization that marked Andrić's era, and neocolonialism.

Vladimir Pištalo was born in Sarajevo in 1960. He studied law in Belgrade and Sarajevo and received a PhD in American history from the University of New Hampshire. Pištalo’s first story was published in a literary magazine when he was eighteen, and his first book was published when he was twenty-one. Since that time, he has published eleven books of fiction. Tesla: A Portrait with Masks, his first book to be translated into English, won the 2008 NIN Literary Award, the most prestigious award in Serbia, and has appeared in ten languages. He teaches U.S. and world history at Becker College in Massachusetts.

This event, held in English, is free and open to the public.
Copies of the book in Serbian will be available for sale at the event. https://www.facebook.com/events/453812801819341/
