Bartosz Glowacki is one of the leading lights of a new generation of accordionists, raising awareness of the accordion in classical music, as well as developing new repertoire for his instrument and winning many prizes and plaudits along the way. O Duo was formed in 2000 and as well as commissioning many new works they have inspired countless children (and adults!) around the world with their virtuosic performances, laid-back presentation and passion for percussion.
Bartosz Glowacki will play music by Domenico Scarlatti, Arvo Pärt, Sofia Gubaidulina, and a selection of Polish, Balkan, Klezmer, Brazilian and French folk music.
O Duo will perform arrangements of Antonio Soler (a student of Scarlatti) and Spanish Dances by Granados, their own piece Bongo Fury, Philip Glass’s Mad Rush, and more to whet the appetite: Marimba Spiritual, Take Five, and with Bartosz Glowacki they end the concert playing music by Piazzolla.
