Time of Life - Geir Draugsvoll and Mette Rasmussen 

21st of November 2020 | 21:30 - 22:45 | Teatro-Cine de Torres Vedras

Geir Draugsvoll is considered one of the most versatile classical accordionists in the world. The Norwegian musician has performed with prestigious orchestras, conductors and musicians, such as the London Symphony Orchestra, Staatskapelle Dresden, Münchener Philharmoniker, Berkeley Symphony, Stockholm Philharmonic, Mariinsky Orchestra, Valery Gergiev, Donald Runnicles, David Geringas, Yuri Bashmet, Vasily Petrenko, and Joana Carneiro. Danish music Mette Rasmussen has played in several festivals and television programs in countries like Norway, Denmark, Sweden, France, China, Ireland, Holland, England and Switzerland.

As a duet, Geir Draugsvoll and Mette Rasmussen gives concerts in several countries, usually with Astor Piazzolla's repertoire, since Novo Tango's compositions fit particularly well in the exploration of the dialogue between accordion and piano, emphasizing as contemporary possibilities for the interpretation of the duo, the rhythmic energy and the markedly melancholy atmosphere of the work. They recently edited their tribute to Piazzolla with the album "Time of Life", a work that has published the best reviews and praise around the world.

Experience them at the Teatro-Cine de Torres Vedras on the 21st of November. You can read more about the program here and listen to a short selection of the duo here!
