City Music Foundation is partnering with Barbican and Culture Mile for Sound Unbound, a free music festival taking place in the City of London Saturday 18 – Sunday 19 May 2019. This weekend-long classical music festival will explore unexpected spaces across Culture Mile, which stretches from Farringdon to Moorgate in the north-west of the Square Mile, celebrating fantastic music alongside the history and heritage of the area.
Bartosz Glowacki (accordion) presents ‘The Anatomy of the Accordion’ at St Bartholomew the Less.
About the programme:There are few instruments more versatile than the modern accordion. Like a portable orchestra at your fingertips, the accordion is as comfortable on the street corner as the concert stage. Polish accordionist Bartosz Glowacki explores the anatomy of this kinetic, red-blooded instrument in a programme ranging from J.S. Bach to Piazzolla via Rameau and Sofia Gubaidulina. Alongside music written for the accordion, such as Gubaidulina’s brash and mocking Sonata ‘Et Expecto’ and Piazzolla’s toe-tapping Libertango, Glowacki presents arrangements of Baroque keyboard music by Bach and Rameau, as well as Krzysztof Penderecki’s angst-ridden Polish Requiem.
(Sunday) 6:00 pm
