Accordion, Violin, Clarinet & Double Bass Ensemble Performing Eastern European & Balkan Music
Anton’s Balkan ensemble’s repertoire consists of Classical Music, Jazz Standards, Klezmer Music, Folk music, Balkan, French, Latin and Popular Music.
Anton is an amazing accordionist covering styles from Europe to America. He is a graduate of The Academy of Performing Arts, Bratislava, Slovakia, where he achieved a Masters Degree in Classical Performance and Composition.
We hired Anton to do a set during a French-themed party, and he was brilliant. He was easy to contact and make arrangements with, and he’s playing really made the atmosphere on the day. In addition, he was very affable and adaptable to what we wanted, including walking around the building encouraging people to come to our party! Highly recommended.
Anton is a gentleman and a fantastic accordionist. I hired Anton to play on my 30th birthday, and from my first email enquiry, Anton was warm, friendly and professional. He answered all my questions quickly and was very flexible with my changing arrangements. On the night, Anton was smartly presented, smiley and easy to talk with. I was surprised at how little he had with him, but I suppose all you need is an accordion and a great mind full of music! To begin with, Anton played some quieter background music so that guests to mingle and chat. Then, as the night went on, he brought the tempo higher and played some really excellent music that everyone enjoyed dancing to.
The night would not have been complete without Anton’s excellent playing, and all of my friends and family remarked how brilliant and engaging he was. I would definitely recommend Anton to anybody who is thinking of hiring an Accordionist. His playing is fantastic, and his demeanour is professional — an all-around wonderful performer.
I had the pleasure of working with Mr Anton. He played the accordion for our guests, celebrating their birthdays or simply having a lovely time through the night in our restaurant. I found Anton to be reliable, punctual and a pleasure to work with.
