The Kosmos Ensemble, a trio of violin, viola and accordion, presents an exciting synthesis of classical and world music. Gypsy, Jewish and Greek music glide into hot-blooded tango, Japanese and Finnish music, referencing classical composers including Piazzolla, Brahms and Sarasvati, all performed with “telepathic rapport, dazzling virtuosity, serious scholarship, intellectual curiosity and impeccable musicianship”. Richard Morrison, chief music critic, The Times.
Accordion? Yes, we too were sceptical. At first. Then we listened to how amazingly these three instruments combine into a dynamic sound. Watch here.
Programme to be advised.
