ARITMIA: MERIMA KLJUČO & MIROSLAV TADIĆ

November 17, 2018 at 7:30 pm

Two celebrated instrumentalists ruminate on their common roots and shared love of traditional Balkan and classical music with original works and arrangements of Erik Satie, Manuel de Falla, and the mournful music of sevdah—sometimes called 'Bosnian blues'.

One of the world's finest concert accordionists, Bosnian-born Merima Ključo is a frequent guest soloist with orchestras like the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra and Holland Symphonia, and has worked with internationally renowned artists and ensembles such as Theodore Bikel, MusikFabrik and the Schönberg Ensemble.

An acclaimed guitarist of Bosnian, Serbian and Croatian origins, Miroslav Tadić has performed and recorded with luminaries such as Terry Riley, Plácido Domingo, Wadada Leo Smith, the London Symphony Orchestra and the Philharmonic Orchestra of Monte-Carlo.

This virtuosic pair shares the fruits of their unique musical partnership, offering a singular mix of joy, yearning and aching beauty.

"A gorgeous pairing… the two play with such serene authority that the listener is almost afraid to take a breath… quietly compelling and deeply felt music." -All About Jazz
