Guy Klucevsek is one of the world’s most versatile and highly-respected accordionists.

This outstanding composer, accordion virtuoso, and improvisor has been a major contributor to the accordion renaissance of the last 25 years. His music 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.

Forget everything you thought you knew about the accordion.

Guy Child Photo, Front Porch, Saddle Brook, NJ

To all my friends and fans:  I am going to be taking an indefinite leave-of-absence from performing to focus on composing, recording, editing my scores for those who may be interested in performing the pieces now or in the future, and archiving my materials which will be included in the NYU Library/Fales Collection;  oh, and to take some time to "smell the roses" with my lovely wife, Jan.

I may pop-up now-and-then to do something, as the spirit moves, but I no longer intend to focus on a career as a performer.

Thanks for all your support!

Best wishes,

Guy

Bandcamp   digital releases of Altered Landscapes; Citrus, My love; and The Landscape Listens.

Altered Landscapes, 1995, is my most ambitious solo accordion composition, commissioned by David Dorfman Dance.  Awarded a BESSIE for best dance/music score.  In three parts, with the third part incorporating Kustino Oro, a traditional tune from the former Yugoslavia.

Citrus, My Love, 1991, was commissioned by Stuart Pimsler Dance Theatre, and is for accordion, violin/viola, cello, and doublebass.

The Landscapes Listens, for violin and accordion, was commissioned by Laurie McCants for her one-person show, Industrious Angels, inspired, in part, by the life and work of American poet, Emily Dickinson.

Sheet music for the oldest composition in my catalogue, "Variations on an Aeolian Theme," is now available. You can find a sample on the "Sheet Music for Guy's tunes" page of this web site.

The piece uses both stradella and free bass, and illustrates that my love of theme-and-variations form was there right from the get-go.
