Notes and Editorial Reviews

Accordionist Rafal Luc and violist Ian Anderson have a love of contemporary music which led them to name their duo after the late, great Don van Vliet - better known by his aant-garde rock persona, Captain Beefheart. Duo van Vliet is dedicated to the expansion of the viola and accordion repertoire and this debut album aims to further this goal. The album features an amazing array of works from arrangements of John Dowland songs and Benjamin Britten's Lachrymae, to four contemporary works for solo viola, solo accordion and for the duo.
