The concert “Accordion Passages” presented by the Klaipėda Chamber Orchestra under the artistic leadership of Mindaugas Bačkus introduces accordionist Laimondas Salijus, one of the most prominent young accordion players in Lithuania. He currently makes regular appearances in Lithuania and elsewhere as soloists and member of chamber ensembles. As the multiple prize winner at various national and international competitions, he won second place in the 2014 World Accordion Championship in Salzburg, Austria, and third prize in the 2012 World Trophy Accordion Championships in Spokane, Washington, U. S. A. His repertoire embraces various styles and periods of music, from the transcriptions of Baroque music to contemporary works for accordion.
