The first time I heard Miloš Milivojević play at the Royal Academy of Music in London, the sound of the free- bass accordion was new to me and thrilling to hear, but it was the repertoire that gave me the greatest pause for thought. Music for keyboard (whether harpsichord, clavichord or organ) was now being played on what is essentially a wind instrument. I quickly learned that not all music would successfully transcribe to this ‘new’ instrument. Beethoven and Brahms would be completely out of place in such transcriptions, but there was a considerable body of ‘old’ music that was sufficiently all-purpose as to become exciting and ‘new’, especially in the hands of such a creative artist as Milos.
Award-winning Serbian born Miloš Milivojević has been described as “A hurricane of imaginative invention” by Hilary Finch, The Times.
