Stunning new Classical Accordion CD by Claudio Jacomucci – Orpheus’ Ballad – A counterpoint of ancient and contemporary music. Claudio Jacomucci hits the spot again contrasting ancient and modern for classical accordion. CD review by Romano Viazzani
A first solo accordion CD from Miloš Milivojević! ZZ Music is so pleased to present this outstanding new album by one of the world’s top accordionists. Miloš Milivojević was part of Owen Murray’s golden generation of accordion students at the Royal Academy of Music in the early 21st century when he studied there after arriving from that other hotbed of accordion talent, Serbia, and has since been very active both in his adopted home city of London and all over the world. The album is well worth the wait.
