Ksenija Sidorova
Solstice Quartet

There was a standing ovation at Ksenija Sidorova’s recital last year. No one had ever heard an accordion player equipped with a phenomenal technical prowess combined with such exquisite musicianship. The success of this recital was so great that we felt compelled to invite her back to the Festival so that more people would have a chance to hear this extraordinarily gifted artist.
Ksenija is joined by the eminently successful Solstice Quartet who, since winning the Royal Overseas League in 2009, has given recitals in the Wigmore and Bridgewater Halls to name but two of a string of well−known concert locations in this country and overseas. They met at Cambridge and have worked with Ksenjia Sidorova on a number of occasions. Their programme is eclectic, fun and varied.
