Dinovski – Schuberth duo is seeking to find an entirely new musical language and aesthetic. They are doing it by taking various approaches to southeast and north European music traditions, as well as new music and jazz. It’s not a post-modern cocktail of sounds on the menu – similarities and differences are elaborated on and developed, sections pieced together or interpreted in an innovative way. The result is a new type of music, at times powerful, at times reduced.
In March 2015 these two humorous men, who happened to be the most prominent young accordion players in Austria today, released their debut album symbolically named “Improvocation”.
They have been chosen for the great Finale for the “Austrian World Music Awards 2015” which occurred in December 2015 in Porgy & Bess (Vienna, Austria).
