Night Serenades’ stage tonight is graced by Tadas Motiečius, the star of classical accordion. Graduate of the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre as well as the Royal Danish Academy of Music he is enjoying active concert itineraries and pedagogical work. Having started to play accordion at the age of ten, today Motiečius is a winner of numerous important competitions. Worthy of note is the story when he, a tenth-grade pupil, flew to the International Accordion and Bayan Competition Drug-Bayan in Korgan (Russia) and won the first prize. The musician seeks to refute a stereotype notion, that accordion is associated exclusively with cheerful wedding songs. “This instrument also allows one to perform very serious academic works. Accordion’s repertoire is ultimately contradictory – either cheerful wedding tunes or extremely modern compositions. I have chosen the second path”, says Motiečius. However, one should not mistaken that academic modern music can only be serious. You will experience that tonight since the programme offers longing sound world of Spanish composer Issac Albeniz, mirthful compositions by Richard Galliano, Andrea di Giacomo and Gustav Holst, as well as always-relevant tangos by Ástor Piazzolla.
