Mario Batkovic bih

For fans of Nils Frahm, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Ludovico Einaudi or even Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

The Bosnian-Swiss Mario Batkovic is a virtuoso on the accordion. In the vein of Philip Glass and Steve Reich he explores the possibilities of the instrument to the extreme. With his cinematic compositions he builds a whole new universe where neoclassical, jazz and Balkan melancholia resonate. The result is of a hypnotic, minimalist beauty. Batkovic’s concerts develop into a total experience with a strong visual component. For fans of Nils Frahm, Jóhann Jóhannsson or Ludovico Einaudi, but aficionados of Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s brand of post-rock can appreciate Batkovic just as well.

(*) In the event of rain being forecast the concerts at the Belfry will be held at the Magdalenazaal. Ticket-holders will be contacted.
