He completed there, with the same teacher, his postgraduate studies and was awarded the Magister of Arts degree (1971). Additionally, he studied chamber and orchestral playing in Salzburg, Austria in the class of Igor Markevich, Erich Leinsdorf and Fernand Oubradous.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8]

Additionally, he was honored with the Award of the Yugoslavian Radio-Television (Ohrid, 1972), awards of the City of Belgrade for the best concert in the previous concert season (1976, 1981, 1986), with 7 July Award (1962) - the state’s highest award for the arts, as well as with many other honors.

Reviews

Milenko Stefanović performed Copland's Clarinet Concerto under the baton of Maestro Copland (1961)

" The brilliant Yugoslav clarinettist Milenko Stefanovic" (The Guardian Journal)

" Yugoslav clarinetist number one Milenko Stefanovic has played his solo part in Obradovic's Concerto with technical brilliancy and deep expression." (Politika)[100]

" Clarinettist of sensitive gifts

It was a pleasure to hear the Yugoslav clarinettist again last night...he showed a quite outstanding technical facility. Listening to his performances... one realised that he is not just another fine player but an artist endowed with unusually comprehensive and sensitive gift of interpretation." (The Daily Telegraph)[101]

" Outstanding clarinet

...the musical event of the evening was Milenko Stefanovic's performance of Mozart's Clarinet Concerto. The soloist's breath control, tonal quality and mastery of phrase and paragraph were such that the work seemed to be taking shape on the spot. I have heard a few outstanding performances of this work, but never one so inspired as this." (Music and Musicians)[102]

" Romanticism flowed at full tide... exciting" (The Guardian Journal)[103]

" Brilliant virtuosity" (Music and Musicians)

" A magnificent...strong and brilliant." (The Yorkshire Post)[104]

" Listening Milenko Stefanovic performing we have considered the confirmed estimation which put him among the most talented clarinetists of now days." (Pro musica)[105]

"The middle items of the concert were Debussy's Rhapsody for Clarinet and Copland's Concerto for Clarinet, Strings, Harp and Piano. In those works we recognized again Milenko Stefanovic as an excellent clarinetist and interpreter. Even better than in Debussy was the young master in Copland's work. This interesting fresh and original work he played with all technical virtuosity and with a radiant tone." (Delo)[106]

" Virtuosity with the clarinet

Milenko Stefanovic, the clarinettist, must be a tremendous asset to the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra for he is a remarkably virtuoso performer... he seemed to be performing on an instrument which was at times akin to the trumpet at others to whispering oboe... breadth and humanity in Schumann's 'Phantasiestucke' where the clarinet's tone took on a sunny tinge, and the long, voluptuous phrases of Brahms's sonata in E flat were generously produced.Debussy's first Rhapsody was always diverting and a sensuous tone increased its romantic elements. An unaccompanied work 'Concerto Abbreviato'... was technical tour the force." (The Daily Telegraph)[107]

" Clarinet player of a wide range

...Mr. Stefanovic has a tone of enormous range and power... He has - what so many clarinet players lack - the best asset of all: a stout pair of lungs. But his breathing into the instrument, its warmth of tone especially in lowest registers and his impeccable phrasing, stamp him more particularly as an outstanding musician." (The Yorkshire Post)[104]

"The interpretation of the Brahms' Quintet was remarkable in the sense of perfection sinking into the refined texture of the strings, which was due to clarinetist Milenko Stefanovic who has given in his performing almost a dematerialized vocal line in which Brahms' musical lyricism has gained a new poetical and sounding dimension." (Politika)[108]

"Milenko Stefanovic's last recital confirmed his renome of a perfect artist of his instrument. He exhibited his highest technical and musical quality. With much taste and invention his well constructed programme enabled him to point out his exceptional affinity towards twentieth century music, and in the same time to stress its variety..." (Borba)[109]

"...the most outstanding Yugoslavian clarinet professor of our day.“ (The Clarinet)[110]

Trivia

Two members of Stefanović's family are also well-known musicians: his son Predrag is a clarinetist and his daughter-in-law Jovana is a composer. Both of them have built significant music careers. Beside that, they are also very esteemed as pedagogues. They have been teaching at the Josip Slavenski School of Music in Belgrade.[34][111]
