French musician Richard Galliano is a virtuoso accordionist, bandoneon player and composer and a major figure on the international music scene. He has recorded more than 50 albums, including for the prestigious Deutsche Grammophon label as the only accordionist on their roster to date. Devoted to the accordion since the age of four, he presents it as an instrument of numerous genres and styles, all of which he masters. Following the lead of Astor Piazzolla, who invented the “new tango”, Galliano created the French “new musette”. Galliano expresses himself in diverse musical styles from classical to jazz, as we will also hear on the Ljubljana Festival stage, which he will share with the excellent string players of Slovene Philharmonic String Chamber Orchestra. The programme includes several well-known extracts from the great classics and a pair of works by Galliano himself, in which he takes on the dual role of soloist and composer.
