His 2014 direction of Le Nozze di Figaro at Wiener Staatsoper garnered high praise and re-engagement to conduct six more operas. He has also conducted numerous operas by Mozart at the Mariinsky Theatre and the Zurich Opera House.

At 19 he was a member of the Vienna State Opera, where he was given decisive impulses by great conductors such as Zubin Mehta, Mariss Jansons and Seiji Ozawa.
Ozawa also became his teacher and invited him with a conducting fellowship to the Tanglewood Festival. Further conducting studies followed with Jorma Panula.

As a soloist Radulović has performed with many of the world’s leading orchestras. He has an equal passion for the intimacy of chamber music, as he regularly undertakes a play/direct role with his ensemble The Devil’s Trills and with Double Sens, and is also an increasingly active recitalist on the international circuit. He has performed at such notable venues as Carnegie Hall, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, and Vienna Konzerthaus.
Radulović released several CDs from Deutsche Grammophon. In 2021 he signed an exclusive recording contract with Warner Classics and the first album Roots was released in 2022.
