After completing his studies in Rijeka in 2004, he went to London and studied at Trinity College with world-renown cellist and professor, Natalia Pavlutskaya (http://nataliapavlutskaya.com/index.html). While studying with Professor Pavlutskaya, Stjepan began winning international competitions. This lead to him performing for Prince Charles and for many of the great names of classical music, including Rostropovich, considered by many to have been one of the greatest cellists of all time (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mstislav_Rostropovich). Stjepan was the only cellist chosen to perform in the gala concert at Palazzo Vecchio, Florence in Rostropovich's memory. www.imdb.com/name/nm4580486/bio
