MARKO HATLAK – ACCORDION

Because of his desire to perfect his work he continued and finished his studies with a postgraduate at the High Schoolof Musicin Würzburg with the extraordinary Professor Stefan Hussong.

His repertoire contains the performances of baroque, renaissance and contemporary music, since the interpretation of classical music is a testament to which he is constantly returning, researching and delving into. Alongside his solo concerts he also performs in a duet with the renowned violinist Karmen Pečar and other renowned Slovene musicians. A counter weight to Hatlak`s intellectualist research is the performing of tango music through which he can most vividly express his essence – a passionate search beyond himself, beyond his capabilities and the capabilities of his instrument.
