From Bach to Piazzolla: For Accordion and Strings


The ERT Contemporary Music Orchestra in a programme with authentic music and arrangements for an instrument that seems to breathe like a human being. The accordion will sing, speak, whisper, and weep onstage in the hands of Christos Zerbinos. And, by his side, the sound of Iakovos Kolanian’s guitar providing an exquisite accompaniment to the music of German, French, Spanish, Italian, and Argentinian melodists.
