Concerts from the Library of Congress: Pick of the Week

August 14

This Pick of the Week features the 2021 virtual performance of accordionist Ksenija Sidorova.  A global ambassador for the instrument and its place in classical music, she delights audiences in the world’s major concert halls, performs with orchestras like the Tonhalle Orchester-Zurich and the NHK Symphony, and partners with exciting artists from Avi Avital to Sting. Highlights in this wide-ranging hour are three scintillating tangos from her new Piazzolla recording, an homage to the composer’s centenary, which earned the coveted Editor’s Choice award from Gramophone magazine.
