The Park Lane Group (PLG) is a non profit organization creating an opportunity for young performers to be noticed and heard on most prestigious classical music stages in London. Martynas Levickis has been working with PLG since 2011. He has given recitals at the Queen Elizabeth Hall Foyer and the Purcell Room in 2011 and 2012. This November, PLG Young Artists programme presented the accordionist and his colleagues, violinist Diana Galvydyte with pianist Christpher Guild at the Wigmore hall. It rounds off a couple of hugely successful years whilst studying at the Royal Academy of Music in London during which he won outright Lithuania’s Got Talent as well as the Piano Accordion category of the CIA Coupe Mondial.

The Programme included Elgar and Szymanowski masterpieces for violin, beautifully played by Diana Galvydyte and Christopher Guild. Levickis started his performance with Bach Fantasia and Fugue in A minor BWV561 which was followed by Efrem Podgaits Sonata No.1 for accordion. In the second half of the concert Levickis presented Per Nørgård’s Suite No.1 from Nine Friends cycle. At the end of the concert, Levickis and Galvydyte performed as a duo playing Piazzolla’s Cafe 1930 and Lithuanian composer Jonas Tamulionis’s Rondo for violin and accordion.

The audience was truly captivated by these three fine musicians on the stage that evening. It was clear they enjoyed the great performance of the violinist Diana Galvydyte and her pianist Christopher Guild but most of all they were completely blown away with the diversity and endless surprises that the accordion, a relative newcomer to serious music, demonstrated on this night. The demanding repertoire that Levickis played was performed both sincerely and musically, and as always very artistically. People enjoyed the sound of accordion, perfectly carried by fine acoustics of The Wigmore Hall.
