The concert of an accordion trio is a more unique than rare event, especially if we leave the field of folklore to delve not so much into the “classic” as into the “new musical”. “New” which singularly seems to match the sound timbre offered by the instrument, comparable only to that of the organ or to that of the most sophisticated electronic equipment. The accordion trio (bayan) presents itself as an extremely new, dynamic and complete ensemble.
The chamber music formation was born in December 2019, and made its debut in October 2020 at the studios of Rai1 “One morning in the family” in the column “It’s Italy beauty”.

It is a very young formation that already boasts various successes on the national and international scene: absolute winners at the “10th Concurso Internacional De Música De Cámara Antón García Abril” held in Baza in Spain (it is one of the highest awards in the chamber music environment, twenty-one formations from all over the world); absolute winners of the XXIV “PIETRO ARGENTO” International Music Competition in Gioia del Colle (BA); absolute winners of the prestigious national competition “Alberto Burri, Festival delle Nazioni” held in Città di Castello (PG) in 2022; 3rd Prize at the XXV edition of the “Luigi Nono International Chamber Music Competition” in Turin; Winners of the 3rd edition of the “Marcello Pontillo” International Music Interpretation Competition in Florence, thirty chamber ensembles with which they had to compete to win the first prize.

The Sirius Accordion Trio also boasts several awards in the world accordion scene:
1st Prize at the “4ème Concours International ACCORDÈONS-NOUS 2021”, competition held in Mons in Belgium; 2nd Prize at the prestigious international competition “46th International Accordion Prize City of Castelfidardo”; 1st Prize at the “74th Coupe Mondiale International Accordion Competition” held in Munich in 2021 (it is the first Italian chamber ensemble to win it for the first time); 1st Prize at the “71st Trophée Mondial De L’Accordéon”.
The trio includes its participation in various festivals: International Chamber Music Festival of Capo di Leuca (LE), Ascoli Piceno Festival (Marche), Ur-Fest of Popoli (Abruzzo), 6th Festival “Classiche Forme” (LE), 30th Edition of the Accordion Festival held in Kragujevac (Serbia), the 49th Chamber Music Season with the GMI (Marche), “The concerts of the slapdash academy” (Lazio) and will be engaged in a concert tour in Spain, Switzerland in 2023 and Italy.
The Sirius Accordion Trio aims to disseminate the classical accordion within the most important concert realities of classical music, expressing the potential of an instrument too often relegated mainly to the popular environment.
