World Music Institute will present two celebrated instrumentalists who share common roots and love of traditional Balkan and classical music. Accordionist Merima Ključo and guitarist Miroslav Tadić are set to perform on Saturday, November 17, 2018 at Leonard Nimoy Thalia at Peter Norton Symphony Space in New York City.
The duo performs original works and arrangements of Erik Satie, Manuel de Falla, and the mournful music of sevdah—sometimes called ‘Bosnian blues.
Bosnian-born Merima Ključo is one of the world’s finest concert accordionists. She is a frequent guest soloist with orchestras including the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra and Holland Symphonia, and has worked with internationally renowned artists and ensembles such as Theodore Bikel, MusikFabrik and the Schönberg Ensemble.
An acclaimed guitarist of Bosnian, Serbian and Croatian origins, Miroslav Tadić has performed and recorded with acclaimed artists such as Terry Riley, Plácido Domingo, Wadada Leo Smith, the London Symphony Orchestra and the Philharmonic Orchestra of Monte-Carlo. He has also recorded duo albums with guitarists Vlatko Stefanovski, Dusan Bogdanovic; vocalists Teofilovic brothers; and saxophonist Peter Epstein, and he is on the faculty of the Herb Alpert School of Music at CalArts.
Both musicians are currently based in Los Angeles.
Merima Ključo & Miroslav Tadić have an album titled Aritmia.
