Iosif Purits and Cecilia Bignall – Accordion and Cello Duo – St John’s, Smith Square 22nd April 2016

Iosif Purits Ceclia Bignall accordion and cello - Duo Bayanello

Iosif Purits on accordion and Cecilia Bignall make up a wonderful duo called Duo Bayanello, who met at the Royal Academy of Music. On the 22nd April 2016 they will perform Takes Two by Sally Beamish at St Johns, Smith Square, London.  Performance starts at 18.00 and will finish around 18.50.

Duo Bayanello is a young and inspiring new ensemble consisting of two contrasting instruments, resulting in a surprisingly harmonious tone: cello and accordion. This connection was said by Rostrapovich to be a more organic combination of sounds than cello and piano, and brings a bigger contribution to accordion chamber music repertoire than any other.

Both studying at the Royal Academy of Music in London, Cecilia Bignall (cello) and Iosif Purits (accordion) have performed around the world, both in solo and chamber music projects.
