NIENDORF Largely differs from what is usually associated with the accordion.
Not a folklore. Not a tango. Not a musette. Instead, a colorful carpet of sounds, unique rhythm, elements of rock, jazz, classic and minimum music. On Monday’s evening in the Everswerft shipyard in Niendorf port, Janusz Wojtarowicz, Paweł Baranek and Marcin Gałażyn gave a wonderful performance calling for utmost respect for their nickname: “Trio Furioso”. In fact they are called ”Motion Trio”, they have been playing their music together and performing on concert tours all over the world for 14 years. Trio got used to large audience, two years ago they performed in the Carnegie Hall in New York – and on Monday’s evening captured attention of 1000 people. All tickets to the concert in the shipyard’s hall had long been sold out. Motion, dynamism: ripple of sounds, rhythmical bases form a trunk, over this the melodies keep rolling. From time to time it the trio allows improvisation, owing to fantastic acoustics it fills the austere industrial architecture with the cacophonic fanfares. However, the majority of musical pieces are full of harmony. The base for the unique arrangements is provided by such masters as Chopin or Bach. Nothing portends, there are the three accordions, which produce the ecstatic tones. Three Poles indulge in fantasy and give free rein to their imagination; for an hour and a half the musicians perform with visible pleasure, producing also rhythmical structures: accordion changed into bongo drums, they even use the clattering sounds of register’s covers. But it is not for the technical virtuosity, that Motion Trio represents the avant-garde accordion performance. It is more attributable to the homogeneousness of sound combination; through which even the most complicated arrangements are easily born. They arouse frenetic applause of the audience. Most listeners left the hall convinced that by means of an accordion one can create modern, rousing and inspiring music. A storm of temperament: Polish Motion Trio performed with great fantasy.
