With its crystalline clarity and delicate sounds, the accordion is now firmly established in the classical mainstream.

The latest in the new generation of accordionists led by the young Latvian Ksenija Sidorova is the young Polish accordionist Bartosz Glowacki. His artistic goal is to continue to improve awareness of the accordion in classical music, as well as to develop a new repertoire for his instrument.

‘In terms of blows, for me the coup de foudre was Bartosz Glowacki…The poetry and intensity of Glowacki’s playing proved compelling…The young Pole creates a poignant and distinctive sound world.’


‘A remarkable ability to suggest the solo line floating over the accompaniment, the results quite Romantic but very affecting.’
