Standing Ovation for Nihad Hrustanbegovic, Amsterdam‏ - Netherlands

Nihad HrustanbegovicThe accordion recital on June 6th by Nihad Hrustanbegovic in the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, for the presentation of his new CD ‘Opus 7, The Cross-over’, was a great success.

Everyone was touched by Nihad's new compositions for solo accordion, and there was an overwhelming applause after every item, and at the end of his accordion recital a standing ovation from a full concert hall.

The music critic Stan Rijven, writing in the Dutch newspaper ‘Trouw’ commented: “What Pablo Casals did for emancipation of the cello, and Astor Piazzola of the bandoneon, Nihad Hrustanbegovic is doing for the accordion”.

Nihad Hrustanbegovic (born 1973 in Bosnia) is a composer and accordionist, now based in the Netherlands. He started his music education at age of nine at the music school at Bijeljina, Bosnia, and from 15 began his professional musical education at the music college of Tuzla.

Between 1988 and 1991, Nihad won five prizes as an accordionist at the ‘Concurs for music students of Bosnia and former Yugoslavia’, including three prizes as a soloist. In 1995 he continued his music education in the Netherlands at the ArtEZ - College for arts at Arnhem, and at the Messiaen Academy, where in 2000 Nihad Hrustanbegovic received his Bachelors degree, and in 2002 his Master of Music degree.
