Accordion Festival 2019 Motion Trio (PL)

 In 2016, the Motion Trio euphorized the Viennese audience at the Accordion Festival when the trio - founded in 1996 by Janusz Wojtarowicz in Poland - celebrated its twentieth anniversary, subtly playing out the full range and artistic depth of its musical vision. The Motion Trio has released 12 CDs so far and toured worldwide. The trio, which has been showered with awards, continues to draw audiences and critics with its concentrated, sensually and intellectually stimulating mixture of classical music, jazz, folkloristic elements, rock and minimal music to storms of enthusiasm. Joe Zawinul, not unknown in Vienna, let them know: "Your music is stunning! Janusz Wojtarowicz, who wrote most of the compositions, defines the Motion Trio's artistic vision this way: " (...) to redefine the accordion and explore soundscapes far beyond what one associates and experienced with this instrument so far."
