Scandinavian sounds at Accordion Festival

The 14th International Accordion Festival in Vienna presents northern musicians such as the Norwegian Guro von Germeten as well as Austrian musicians such as Otto Lechner and Willi Resetarits. 35 events will take place from 23 February until 24 March.

The Accordion orchestra, led by Otto Lechner, will open the Festival on 23 February. The famous musician will play together with Moroccan accordionist Kadero Rai and the Tunisian singer Raouf Kahouli.

As the festival emphasizes being international, there will be musicians from countries such as Sweden, Poland, France, Greece, Canada, Great Britain or Romania.

This year’s festival is dedicated to Scandinavian Accordion music: The Finn Kimmo Pojhonen will perform in the second opening gala in Progy & Bess on 24 February. The highlight of his performance is an acoustical and optical choreography.

The Norwegian Guro von Germeten will perform on 26 February in Ost Klub. Her music covers different genres from melancholic chanson to klezmer melodies. The musician is not only convincing on her red accordion but also with her amazing voice.

Filmcasino will show silent films, which will be acoustically accompanied by musicians. "Nosferatu", "The Three Musketeers" as well as "Laurel and Hardy" will be presented at these matinees.

Another highlight will be the performance of the famous Austrian musician Willi Resetarits  together with the band Stubnblues. On the basis of folk songs from different countries, the band will play the ukulele and harmonica.

The children’s theatre "Dschungel Wien" offers three "magical afternoons" for children aged three and older.
