A sizzling musical finale to the 39th Petworth Festival as the extraordinary virtuoso that is the Lithuanian classical accordionist Martynas Levickis is joined by four equally exciting fellow countrymen, from the Mikroorkéstra Ensemble. They present a dynamic programme centred on the timeless ‘Tango Nuevo’ of renowned Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla. If ever a programme was designed to bring a festival to a fitting finale this carefully compiled sequence of popular classical, tango and folk music is certainly it!
