Nikola Djoric takes Mussorgsky’s pictures from an exhibition to task
Pictures at an exhibition of Mussorgsky on an accordion? Nikola Djoric dedicates his new digital album "Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition" to the highly romantic repertoire and plays the original notes - but not on the piano.
His mission is to roll out the qualities and the full range of a previously underestimated instrument. Undreamt-of sound spheres can be frightened by volume and enchanted by the finest melody lines. The extreme agility of the accordion allows Djoric, especially during Mussorgsky's musical tour through an exhibition, to illuminate the hidden and unheard lines, arcs and sounds of the original score.
What this sounds like can now be heard on all digital platforms.
