From Bach to Piazzolla. A Tribute to the late Alexander Sevastian of Quartetto Gelato, world renowned master of the accordion and bandoneon.
Patrons of Music Niagara fondly remember the phenomenal accordion playing of Alexander Sevastian, a member of the popular group, Quartetto Gelato. His sudden death at the age of 41 this past February, during a tour of Mexico, has evoked a tremendous sense of loss in the musical community. A renowned artist, Sevastian won four international Accordion Competitions, performed in recitals around the world, and appeared with many North American symphony orchestras. Born in Belarus, Sevastian moved to Canada in April 2001 and joined Quartetto Gelato the following year.
