‘… a hurricane of imaginative invention.’
Miloš Milivojević has established himself as one of the most exciting young accordionists of his generation. Born in Serbia, he studied in Kragujevac and won international competitions in Italy, Denmark, France and Germany before coming to London to study at the Royal Academy of Music. Whilst there he won the prestigious Derek Butler Prize and began a mission to promote the accordion as an instrument in the concert hall. He has since given dozens of world premieres and first UK performances of works by composers including Howard Skempton, Ben Foskett, Elena Firsova and Luciano Berio.
Miloš’s musical commitments as a soloist, chamber musician and regular member of the London Tango Quintet, Kosmos Ensemble, Accord Duo and Balkan group Paprika have taken him to festivals across the UK, Russia, Slovenia, Hungary, Italy, Iceland, Serbia, Montenegro, Spain, the Canary Islands, Malta, Australia and New Zealand. His repertoire ranges from contemporary music with the London Sinfonietta to tangos on Strictly Come Dancing.
In 2014 he was elected an Associate of the Royal Academy of Music for his contribution to the music. He is an official artist of Pigini Accordions and performs exclusively on their instruments.
The London Tango Quintet brings together five outstanding musicians to play the music of Piazzolla, Troilo and other giants of Argentinian tango.
Formed in 2007 by violinist, David Juritz, the quintet has made numerous appearances in music festivals and concert halls around the UK. With five acclaimed soloists as its members, the London Tango Quintet doesn’t limit itself to tango but includes a wide range of music, from the baroque to contemporary in its programmes.
