Accordion and bandoneon virtuoso Julien Labro presents an insightful view into the “Art of the Accordion,” from Johann Sebastian Bach to French chansons to Argentinian tangos by Astor Piazzola.
Labro has established himself as the foremost accordion and bandoneón player in the classical and jazz genres. Deemed to be “a triple threat: brilliant technician, poetic melodist and cunning arranger,” his artistry, virtuosity, and creativity as a musician, composer and arranger have earned him international acclaim.
His musical journey has taken him all across North America, Europe, the Middle East and South America. He has collaborated with numerous symphony orchestras and chamber ensembles.
He will appear as a soloist with the Buffalo Philharmonic later this season.
The duo of violinist Barbara Luisi and the highly praised Venetian pianist Alessandro Taverna is exploring the repertoire of favorite short pieces of music by famous composers.
Their program “Les Images…Encore!” was recently presented in a celebrated appearance at the Venice Opera House, Teatro La Fenice.
Luisi plays a Giovanni Grancino violin from 1700.
Taverna established his international career by winning major prizes at the London International Piano Competition and the Busoni Piano Competition in Bolzano, among many others. Since then, he has performed in some of the most important concert halls.
Fiery Balkan brass, throbbing funk grooves, and virtuoso jazz chops make Slavic Soul Party New York City’s official No. 1 brass band for Balkan soul and Gypsy funk.
"...terrifying, exhausting and way more aggressive than a lot of punk music I've seen," said Sufjan Stevens in Rolling Stone.
The band has released seven full-length albums over the past 15 years, and has toured in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Europe, Turkey, and Zimbabwe.
It has performed in venues as diverse as pashas’ palaces to dive bars, and from Carnegie Hall to Serbian schoolyards.
Their Tuesday night residency in Park Slope, Brooklyn, has made the community a destination for music fans from around the world.
