Guy Klucevsek – AMAZING ACCORDION!!!

19 Mar

by Veronika Krausas

Last night I attended one of the best concerts I’ve been to in ages!

Guy Klucevsek – one of the world’s most amazing accordion players/composers—had a small performance at a very lovely little spot in Culver City called the Royal T (good food too!) But back to music … I’ve been listening to this man’s CDs for about 20 years now – introduced to me by my old friend in Montreal, Francois Landry (who also turned me on to the Art Bears, Fred Frith and Godspeed You! Black Emperor).

Everyone was smiling at the concert – Klucevsek plays the accordion like a storyteller, a virtuosic storyteller. At intermission I introduced myself and was one of those embarrassing, slobbering groupie fans! He was lovely and charming and inspiring. Thank goodness for the accordion and Klucevsek.

Klucevsek is in LA recording a soundtrack for John Williams and the new films about Tin Tin by Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg.

I can’t recommend Klucevsek’s music enough. I’m still smiling! Here’s his website & myspace info:

And here’s a picture from last night with Jeff Gauthier (organizer of the event and himself a super duper violinist and composer, head of Cryptogramophone Records), GUY KLUCEVSEK, and yours truly (smiling ‘cause the music was so great).
