Standing tickets for the most sought-after concert of the season – the performance of the charismatic accordion player Ksenija Sidorova

The much anticipated concert with the world-acclaimed accordion performer Ksenija Sidorova as a soloist accompanied by the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra, is scheduled for this coming Friday, April 21, at the Kolarac Concert Hall, starting from 8 p.m. One of the brightest stars on the accordion will play works by Piazzolla. The rest of the program also includes compositions by M. de Falla and A. Ginastera under the baton of conductor Nil Venditti.

One of the most popular concerts from the Philharmonic season On the Right Track brings the atmosphere of Buenos Aires and sensual tango rhythms and other Latin dances. As the BPO audience has taken a huge interest in the leading ambassador for the classical accordion, Ksenija Sidorova and the tickets have long been sold out, the Philharmonic Orchestra is introducing standing tickets, which will be available before the beginning of the concert.

This unique and charismatic artist will showcase the vast capabilities of her instrument in her passionate musicianship. Her repertoire spans from Bach to Piazzolla, including new accordion concertos composed especially for her. Ksenija has collaborated with many leading orchestras, and her partners in chamber music are the most attractive artists of today such as Nemanja Radulovic, Andreas Ottensamer, Milos Karadaglic and Avi Avital.

Known for her breathtaking virtuosity, Sidorova will perform two Piazzolla compositions with the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra – the famous Libertango and Aconcagua, concertos for accordion and orchestra. Her first performance with our orchestra is also third time lucky, as her long-anticipated appearance in several Philharmonic seasons had been postponed on two previous occasions.

Nil Venditti, a young Turkish-Italian conductor, gives a feminine tone to the colourful Latin repertoire. De Falla’s suite El Amor Brujo (The sorcerer love) brings the passionate flamenco sounds, while the night dedicated to Argentina is crowned by Ginastera’s energetic Dances from Estancia, about the life of gauchos. Standing tickets will be on sale one hour before the concert, from 7 p.m. at the Kolarac ticket office.
