So great to see the incredible accordionist Ksenija Sidorova back in the UK with amazing new arrangements of two major works. Antonio Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons and Astor Piazzolla’s The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires. What does Italian baroque music have in common with Argentinian tango? They’re both full of rhythm and dance, both have freedom to embellish and improvise. Hear the two meet as we take one of orchestral music’s most recognisable pieces and reinvent it with a Latin twist, including both violin and accordion soloists.
Sidorova has been travelling extensively all over the world doing hundreds of concerts for her German record Label Deutsche Gramophon and has been busy being a wonderful ambassador for the the accordion, it’s music and it’s image globally. She always has great affection for London as she lived here for many years and studied accordion at the Royal Academy of Music so it is great that she is able to play these double concertos at the wonderful Cadogan Hall back in the city where she spent so much of her time as a student and has so many friends.
