“Nyman’s music is so wonderful it even sounds good on the accordion.”

This release heralds an extraordinary collaboration between Poland’s foremost, nay celebrated, accordion trio, The Motion Trio and Britain’s finest and most prolific classical composer, Michael Nyman.

The collaboration, which operates under the name Michael Nyman and Motion Trio, was originally dreamt up for the 7th Kinoteka Polish Film Festival and performed at the Barbican in April 2009. Together, they have produced Acoustic Accordions, an interpretation of nine of Nyman’s greatest hits (plus a bonus track Silence, written and performed by The Motion Trio) featuring Nyman on piano and Nigel Barr on Trombone and Euphonium.

The Motion Trio are an accordion trio. They were honored with the ‘Gus Viseur’ award at the Musical Discovery of the Year awards in 2005 in France - a top honour in the accordion world.

They are the grand prix laureates of the 4th Edition of the Krzysztof Penderecki International Contemporary Chamber Music Competition.


The Motion Trio have participated in a great number of prestigous festivals events inlcuding the Montreal Jazz Festival, the Alternativa Festival, Moscow, Migration Music Festival Taipei, Fest Der Kontinente Berlin, Gaudeamus Festival, Amsterdam, Reykjavik Arts Festival, Festival d'Ile de France, Paris and many others.
