With reimagined traditional works to modern repertoire and improvisation, all vividly rendered by the unique combination of saxophone and accordion, the Mikeleiz-Zucchi Duo are experts on the Tango and this event will be an informal, joyous event for all the family. We hope there will be dancing!
The Mikeleiz-Zucchi Duo is a London–based ensemble formed by Canadian saxophonist David Zucchi and Spanish accordionist Iñigo Mikeleiz-Berrade. Winners of the Royal Over-Seas League Annual Music Competition’s Mixed Ensemble Prize and City Music Foundation Artists, the Mikeleiz-Zucchi Duo’s repertoire spans everything from reimagined traditional works to modern repertoire and improvisation, all vividly rendered by the unique combination of saxophone and accordion.
After their debut concert at the Vale de Cambra Classical Music Festival (Portugal) in 2019, the duo has performed across the UK and Europe, including appearances at Wigmore Hall, Edinburgh Fringe, St Martin-in-the-Fields, Newbury Spring Festival, Buxton International Festival, the Rosengart Museum (Lucerne), St. George’s Bristol, and the Daylight Music series (Union Chapel, London). They have appeared on BBC Radio 3's In Tune with Sean Rafferty, and were 2023 residents at Music at Brel (Roquecor, France). The duo is dedicated to the generation of new repertoire for their instrumentation, and commissions for the duo have been supported by the Marchus Trust, the Nicholas Boas Charitable Trust, and the Vaughan Williams Foundation.
