Denise Leigh and Stefan Andrusyschyn

Today in an attempt to be a bit more cultured, and support someone I know I went along to one of the lunchtime recitals in Oxford today. I love the acoustics of the chapels here, and today was absolutely glorious. Stefan and Denise are the only classical accordion/soprano duo in this country, so it was a real treat to have an hour of their talent as they led us through an excellent program of music. Classical accordion sounds rather like a chamber organ; something I have always liked. If you ever get to hear these two, DO! Their remit is impressive.

It sounds lovely, although my usual take on the accordion can be summarised by this definition of a gentleman - 'one who can play the accordion, but doesn't'. However, if he's an accordionist, why is he sitting at the piano in your pic?

good point! I didn't get a picture of him playing the accordian, and the last two pieces were on the piano....!
