Genadijus Savkovas, one of the leading Lithuanian accordionists, is the graduate of the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre, and Kiev Conservatoire. He has led international master classes in Slovakia, Poland and Germany, gave open lessons in Great Britain and Russia. Savkovas is an associate professor at the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre, teacher-expert at the Naujoji Vilnia Music School in Vilnius, and a member of Excelsior Baltic Accordion Quintet.

Savkovas gives solo concerts, also collaborates with various ensembles and orchestras. As a soloist he has appeared with St. Chrisopher Chamber Orchestra, Čiurlionis Quartet and the Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra. Since 1978, he has played as a duo with Eduardas Gabnys giving concerts in Lithuanian and abroad. For many years the accordionist has collaborated with pianist and composer Tomas Leiburas and his ensemble.    

Savkovas’ rich repertoire encompasses original classical and romantic opuses as well as popular music. The concert programme features mid-20th-century music not only showcasing the mastery of the performers and ‘live’ sound of the instruments, but also revealing nostalgia and familiar dance rhythms. Savkovas and the ensemble will perform tangos, waltzes, polkas, temperamental Latin American melodies, as well as original works by Pietro Frosini, Boris Tikhonov, Yury Peshkov, etc.
