The Mikeleiz-Zucchi Duo bring their compelling combination of instruments – saxophone and accordion – to the concert hall, exploring the symbolic relationship between these two instruments and dance music, and paying tribute to legends of music and dance.
In Greek mythology, Terpsichore is the goddess of dance and poetry, and her legacy as a divine inspiration to artists resonates throughout music history. This programme is built around Michael Praetorious’ collection of instrumental dances named after Terpsichore, and subsequently encompasses Eastern European traditional music to nuevo tango; Scottish folk music to Maurice Ravel’s homage to his fallen comrades and the composer François Couperin.
