Accordion virtuoso Richard Galliano and Geneva Camerata will perform at Shanghai Oriental Art Center on June 17. Galliano has proven to be exceptionally versatile, having made his mark in all kinds of musical contexts; from establishing the accordion in the Jazz scene through various collaborations with the likes of Chet Baker, Steve Potts and Jimmy Gourley, to his impressive interpretations of classical repertoire, as found on his previous release for DG.
Galliano’s new recording follows his acclaimed Bach project, which sold more than 40,000 units. This new album is a tribute to the late composer, Nino Rota, and ties in with Rota’s 100th birthday on December 3. The Geneva Camerata performs both on period instruments and on modern instruments. The Geneva Camerata is involved in dance, video and theater collaborations.
