Bartosz Glowacki (classical accordion)

Regent Hall, London December 14, 2012

The Royal Academy presented this young virtuoso classical accordionist in an excellent recital which enthralled the Regent Hall lunchtime audience, and provided an opportunity to photograph and video the artist, which was not allowed at the RAM's own concerts [links above to videos].

Others, whom I followed to hear them again at appearances away from the Academy, have included Julia Hamos, who had made a particularly strong audiovisual impression there in Kurtag's Jatekok, whch she included also in her solo recital at the Hungarian Cultural Centre.

Also the Pythagoras Quartet, who repeated their clever conjunction of Bach and Piazzolla before a huge appreciative audience at St Martin's-in-the-Fields.
