Folk Tales CD

“the Folk Tales concert was amazing - a fabulous format and beautifully put across. Truly stunning... I think everyone there was entranced!”
Judy Eglington, Iford Arts

FOLK TALES - a virtuosic, whirling, toe-tapping celebration of classical, folk and gypsy music
for accordion, violin and cello - evocatively arranged music from Bela Bartok, Zoltan Kodaly & Johannes Brahms with Czech, English and Romanian folk tunes, including the famously exotic Russian song Dark Eyes and an exhilarating performance of Czardas.
