In the second lunchtime performance of the Festival we present the first ever accordion recital to be held in the Barber Concert Hall with Latvian-born Ksenija Sidorova. Praised as ‘an amazingly accomplished artist’ (Classical Source) and as ‘superbly subtle and virtuosic’ (The Arts Desk), Sidorova is a leading light in modern accordion performance. She has toured extensively, bringing original works and arrangements to new audiences, and has collaborated with artists including Miloš Karadaglić, Juan Diego Florez and Nicola Benedetti.
