St. Catherine’s Church (30 Vilniaus St., Vilnius)
THE CONTROVERSIAL ACCORDION
Charismatic, temperamental, intriguing
DUO VERSUS Ensemble (Great Britain):
ABE MCWILLIAMS (violin)
MARTYNAS LEVICKIS (accordion)
It is said that good practices catch on quickly. So violinist Abe McWilliams has joined Martynas Levickis in his mission (to reveal the most vivid colours of the accordion and prove that this instrument’s place extends far beyond your ordinary drinking session).
These like-minded musicians, calling themselves Duo Versus, are determined to show us that the accordion is an excellent accompaniment to the subtle violin. Hearing these musicians playing together, perhaps J. S. Bach or even W. A. Mozart would think it a pity they never created music for precisely this type of duo. And you shall most certainly not regret deciding to spend an evening with this rollicking duo, demanding attention not only for their playing, but also for their surprising presence.
Programme – W. A. Mozart, B. Bartók, A. Piazzolla, A. Pärt, and others.
