Guy Klucevsek, one of the world’s most versatile and highly-respected composer/accordionists, creates music which reverberates with sounds of the ballroom, the beer garden and the concert hall, fusing elements of regional accordion styles with jazz and avant-garde music. Since 1972, he has been composing music extensively for modern dance, theatre, puppet and object theatre, and film, as well as for solo accordion, small bands, and chamber ensembles.
Performances include Ten Days on the Island (Tasmania), the Adelaide Festival, the Berlin Jazz Festival, Lincoln Center, Spoleto Festival/USA, BAM Next Wave Festival, international accordion festivals in Vienna, Cotati (CA), and San Antonio, and the children’s television show “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood.”
He can also be heard on John Williams’s orchestral scores for the Steven Spielberg films, “The Terminal,” “Munich,” “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” and “The Adventures of Tin-Tin,” and on A. R. Rahman’s score for “People Like Us.”
Come celebrate with him and the rest of the performers for his birthday celebration!
