Alexander Sevastien at CrossCurrents Cafe - a Spellbinding Performance
Alexander Sevastian, a recent performer at CrossCurrents Cafe, may well be the best accordionist in the world. He's won four world competitions and placed second or third in numerous others. His repertoire is classical and traditional. The audience Friday, February 10, was awestruck by the brilliance of his technique. His interpretations were compelling, emotional and powerful. Sevastien brought a combination of musicianship, experience and passion that made for a thrilling concert. After a standing ovation, he left to join his renowned group, Quartetto Gelato for a concert in Mexico.
