Biography

The accordion is probably most closely identified with folk music from Eastern Europe and South America, but the young Lithuanian virtuoso Martynas Levickis aims to prove that it can make all kinds of music, everywhere. His debut album on Decca is a riotous ride through a rainbow of styles, all of them artfully tailored and arranged to show off Martynas’s brilliant playing. From ...

Product Description

Product Description

Arrangements of rich classics, gypsy dances to contemporary pop covers showcase this virtuoso accordionist’s musical and expressive range. A show-stopping arrangement of Lady Gaga’s Telephone by Lithuanian Martynas is set alongside an exotic mix of styles, featuring gypsy dances, tango, classic French movie themes, Latin American rhythms and the music of Verdi and Vivaldi. Thanks to the breadth and depth of his musical tastes, abundant showmanship and natural charisma, Martynas is perfectly placed to catapult the accordion into the 21st Century.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's what music is about, right? 1 July 2013
By JB TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
It was at his family's holiday house in the forests of Lithuania that the three year old Martynas first picked up a small accordian. At first he sang folk tunes he'd heard, playing along with himself on the little squeeze-box.

Fast forward twenty years and Martynas is now a graduate of London's Royal Academy of Music, the recipient of a major record contract, the winner of Lithuania's Got Talent and the victor in the most important international accordian competition, the Coupe Mondiale.

For this album, his sparkling showcase, Martynas has chosen a programme to demonstrate not just his infinite virtuosity (as in the Brahms Hungarian Dance No 5 or Monti's Czardas), but his ability to conjure up a gentle mood of romantic nostalgia (as in Parlez-Moi d'Amour, where he barely breathes upon the keys).

If there's one thread which draws together the pieces on the disc it's Martynas' energy in wishing to share his love of the music; it comes across as vividly now as it must have done to his parents in listening to the little boy all those years ago.

In the booklet which accompanies the CD, Martynas says that he couldn't be happier now that he's able to "speak the language of music to people and their hearts. In the end, that's what music is about, right?"

Played like this, you can only agree. An outstanding release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ode to Joy! 7 July 2013
By Rev Sal
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What a treat this is! Martynas plays accordion favourites and more. Totally life-giving and joyful, Martynas is accompanied by a range of other fab musicians, but the tunes never loose their outdoorsy, busking feel! Merry and bright; a great collection of themes for this summer and beyond!

5.0 out of 5 stars Moving Music 14 July 2013
By Jo

I saw Martynas on BBC Breakfast TV and immediately saw his passion and commitment to the music he was playing. There is a mixture of well known and not so well known tracks to suit every mood. Play it most days loudly if possible!

Accordions and classical music? Not a combination you consider everyday, but this was outstanding (heard through Classic FM, and found the CD on here). Well worth listening to!

This guy has magic hands. His ability on the accordion is spell bounding. Can't wait for his next CD. Even those who don't like the accordion will think twice when they hear this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth a listen 4 July 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As an accordion player I was looking forward to hearing this CD, and I wasn't disappointed:-) A beautiful mix of classical and modern pieces, showing the versatility of this amazing instrument. Martynas is a very accomplished player and all of his playing sounds effortless. I did have a small issue with the balance on a couple of tracks, I found it hard at times to actually pick out the accordion sound. Overall a most enjoyable listening experience, I will buy more of his work.

5.0 out of 5 stars So young and so talented. 9 Oct 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
I waited for the mp3. Fabulous. A great talent. It's nice to see the accordion given some credibility. I was brought up listening to my dear late father playing. I was aware that you can play classical, pop and contemporary music. It's great that such a young man has brought this instrument to the forefront and got it into the music charts.
