HarrisonParrott welcomes back accordionist Ksenija Sidorova for worldwide management
Praised as “revelatory” (The Telegraph) and playing with “verve, style, attitude and impeccable virtuosity” (ZealNYC), Ksenija Sidorova is the world’s undisputed leading ambassador for the classical accordion. Ksenija’s charismatic performances showcase not only her instrument’s unique capabilities, but also her own intense passion and breathtaking skill.
Her repertoire spans over three centuries from J.S. Bach to Václav Trojan. She has championed concertos by Astor Piazzolla and Erkki-Sven Tüür around the world – the latter often in collaboration with Paavo Järvi. A passionate advocate of new music, several accordion works have been composed especially for her. She begins this season by giving the world premiere of Chaconne by Sergei Akhunov with both Riga Sinfonietta and London Chamber Orchestra acting as co-commissioners.
“The indisputable highlight of the evening” (BBC News) at the 2021 Last Night of the Proms, Ksenija plays regularly at the Münchner Philharmoniker, Tonhalle Orchester-Zürich and Royal Liverpool Philharmonic. Her chamber partners this season include Avi Avital, Signum Saxophone Quartet and tenor Benjamin Appl.
Born in Riga, Ksenija studied at the Royal Academy of Music in London under Owen Murray and was made a Fellow (FRAM) in 2021.
