Ensemble “Bella vita!“ The beauty of sound of accordion and flute – is an unusual combination, which brought together two soloists. It is important not only to feel music, but also to convey the feeling of music to the listeners, to make sure that music goes from heart to heart. This ensemble produced their ideas while performing with Rolandas Kazlas in “come down heaven on earth“, when they started interpreting music together. Different periods and genres are covered in their musical pieces, where the listener is transformed into the world of immence colour and harmony, where the tones of musical ideas are brought from baroque style till rock. It is important for the ensemble that the listener feels the underneath of the music and at least for a bit could live in a nicer world of music.
