Andreas Günther - keys, saxophone, composition
The Macedonian accordion player and composer Yordan Kostov is coming to Germany in May. He's performing concerts and artistic projects around Europe, Asia and South- America.
His contemporary compositional work often includes special instruments, open improvisations, electronic noise and as well the typical balkan flavour of his origin Macedonia.
His musical conceptions go from small accordion jazz groups
to large ensembles and compositions for choir and orchestra,
sometimes also with a DJ being part of the show.
His highly intense music leads to unidentified places of surreality, transforming sweet melodies into complex polytonal sounds.
