ACCORDICA II (2009)-uroš rojko

uroš rojko (b.1954) ACCORDICA II (2009)
accordion + violin

“ Rojko’s Accordica series strives to merge both instruments into one sounding body. Delving into the deepest interior of the sound as the mood of each instrument subtly colours the other. Sound and si- lence are blended together through ne fragmentation of sequences without losing the plasticity of the sound space. Accordica 2 was written for accordionist Primoz Parovel in the spring of 2009 and dedicated to him and violinist Pi-chao Chen.” –Uro ̆ s Rojko
