"A real highlight!" – Music Austria 


Sep 2022


New play "Tuntschi. Eine Häutung"

staged at Bühnen Bern. For this I have composed music and constructed a new instrument:

"Thunder Fiddle 2.0" or "Donner-Geige"


Aug 2021



I am happy to present my new project with great musicians and friends!

I composed for it music to the poetry of Jewish Viennese poet and Polish resistance fighter

Tamar Radzyner (1927–1991), whom I recently discovered through her first book of poetry, published posthumously by Theodor Kramer Gesellschaft in Vienna.

The second part of the program consists of my new instrumental pieces,

composed exclusively for this line up.


Jelena Popržan



Christoph Pepe Auer - Clarinet & Sax

Clemens Sainitzer - Cello

Lina Neuner - Double Bass


Premiere at Glatt&Verkehrt Festival, July 2021

What an honour to get this award! To be among such great names as Vasil Hadžimanov, Vladko Stefanovski, Nenad Vasilić, Papa Nik and others. Thank you very much World music asocijacija Srbije for this recognition. This award is called after Vojin Draškoci, very important musician who influenced so many big artists in Serbia and abroad. Unfortunately I never had the chance to meet him or to learn directly from him but I guess I may be proud to come as far.

"Fascinating and limitless"



"One of the most versatile musicians in the country ... Jelena Popržan presents with" La Folia "a breathtaking debut album."

Radio Ö1, Jazz-Magazinn (AT)


"Check out this seriously talented musician who will blow your mind with her viola ...

... she brings a Rock ‘n’ Roll aesthetic to what some see as a bloated violin ...

... Jelena sounds cooler than a cucumber to us!"

– Wurstelstand (AT)

(october 2018)

One of the songs I wrote for the theater play "Zrenjanin" by Igor Štiks, directed by Boris Liješević, produced by "Narodno pozorište Toša Jovanović" Zrenjanin, Serbia. This is a story about my hometown, about the traumatas coused by privatisation of the public property, unemloyment, coruption and never the less political ignorance.
