MARKO HATLAK IN CONCERT: “SLOVENIA: LOVE THE COLORS OF ACCORDION”
Slovenian accordionist Marko Hatlak explores the versatility of the accordion in a solo concert featuring baroque, contemporary and folk music. Hatlak’s unique, original interpretation of each individual piece, regardless of the style, evokes an emotionally thorough and authentic experience in the audience. At one moment we witness energetic melodies in the rhythm of tango, at the next we travel with him to the hidden corners of the Balkans from the northern fringes to the southern borders on the wings of folk music. His performance of baroque and contemporary music opens up the immeasurable depths of harmonies of the composing genius J. S. Bach and innovative composition of the present time. Hatlak uses a comical tone to tell stories about the pieces he heard and spices up some of them by singing. He attracts the entire audience to the musical interaction and makes the scene pulsate in lively Balkan rhythms.
