Renowned figures in composition such as Ennio Morricone, John Corigliano, Unsuk Chin, Tristan Murail, Mark Andre, and Ivan Fedele have awarded his compositions, which prominent international soloists and orchestras have performed. His works have been performed and broadcasted at concerts and music festivals across Europe, including the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy (68th International Rostrum of Composers in Palermo), Austria, Finland, Russia, Hungary, Norway, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as in the United States and Africa (Festival International de Musique Symphonique d'Alger in Algeria).

“A wonderful heroic and adventurous energy. Veljko grabs you by the ears and pulls you into a hair-raising adventure, full of so many lively ideas and details, there’s never a dull moment.” (Gabriel Prokofiev)
“Music of Veljko Nenadić is impressively effective, particular, and energetic. The composer has a great sense of flow, dramaturgy, and the ability to synthesize different musical practices in a unique way... His pieces are full of imagination and admirable unpredictability.” (Jury members of Luigi Nono Composition Competition)
