“It is not often that you come across pure musical genius. But a few do exist. Victor Prieto is a musician’s musician; he is a composer, a veritable master of melody and harmony, and rhythm. In other words, he is made completely of music.” In a word his performance is ‘supernatural’, meaning that in the normal natural realm it’s hard to imagine anyone playing an accordion as he does. — World Music Report
Víctor Prieto, a revolutionary on the accordion, embraces Jazz, Tango, Classical and Celtic Roots enriched with new rhythms and colors. He has performed at many prestigious venues and events such as Berklee Performance Center, Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Blue Note NY, New Jersey Performance Art Center, Three Rivers Musical Festival, Williamsburg Jazz Festival, Mary D’Angelo Performing Arts Center. He has also performed and recorded with Yo-Yo Ma (Songs of Joy and Peace, Sony BMG Masterworks. “2010 Grammy Winning Album”), Arturo O’Farrill Latin Jazz Orchestra, Billy Hart, Jeff Ballard, Paquito D’Rivera, Matt Wilson, Donny McCaslin, Lionel Louke among others and is involved in projects such as The Maria Schneider Orchestra and Emilio Solla’s Jazz Tango conspiracy.
This project is sponsored in part by the Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Council of Arts and Culture and the State of Florida.
