Nihad Hrustanbwgovic Concert, Sarajevo - Bosnia and Herzegovina

Nihad HrustanbwgovicBosnian concert accordionist Nihad Hrustanbwgovic wrote the following on social media: “Four days ago, on Sunday June 24th, I did not play the most important, but I played the most beautiful classical accordion concert ever in my life. Why? There were many people at the concert in the impressive Atelier Gallery Figure in Sarajevo. More people than the chairs! And it did feel like I had played in Paris or Amsterdam, of some other beautiful European city.

There were also some changes in the program and I performed not 1, but 2 new compositions: ‘Danja’ and ‘Breath of life’. I've never had so much inspiration and intention to play with love and energy in the music performance during the concert like on Sunday June 24th.

Thank you Atelje Galery Figure in Sarajevo and Federal Television of Bosnia Hercegovina for the invitation in their TV program and for the concert.

It has been a great moment to start Summer 2018 and to give honor to the International World Music day 2018; love and music with Antonio Vivaldi – ‘Summer’, Erik Satie – ‘Gymnopédie I & III’, Isaac Albéniz – ‘Asturias’ (Leyenda), Hans Zimmer – ‘Chevaliers de Sangreal’, Astor Piazzolla – ‘Escualo’, ‘Milonga del Angel’, ‘Fracanapa’, ‘Oblivion’, ‘Libertango’, Yann Tiersen – ‘Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain, Nihad Hrustanbegovic – ‘Danja’ and ‘Breath of Life’ - World premiere – ‘Stork suite’ (World promenade, Sevdah, Jazz Balade, Flamenco wals, Balkan soul), George Gershwin – ‘Summertime’, and to have 4 encores because people just wanted to hear more and more.

I guess it’s just all the time press the key with love and to give the public all you have and you can! This has been the magic in the air of the accordion after long time”.
