Strings of Autumn: Richard Galliano a Radek Baborák Ensemble
- 31. 10. 2017
Accordion and bandoneon virtuoso Richard Galliano is an esteemed composer and an amphibian of the worlds of jazz and classics. He is currently the only accordion player with a recording contract with Deutsche Grammophon. Galliano has recorded more than 50 albums under his own name, he has worked with scores of excellent artists from all different genres, and – as he himself notes – he has accompanied almost every single major French singer, such as Charles Aznavour or Juliette Greco. His concerts are always a memorable experience, whichever of his aspects you are a fan of – classic, ethno, or jazz. He employs his practically unlimited technical talent in the service of music, and he also has a great knack for choosing compatible musicians to band with. For his concert at this year’s Strings of Autumn, he will be joined by world-leading hornist and brilliant maestro Radek Baborák’s Orquestrina to perform a repertoire built partly on the most classical of classics (Mozart) and partly on the iconic creators of more cutting-edge styles: Tango Nuevo (Piazzolla) and New Musette (Galliano himself).
