The Black Diamond
Final Gala Concert and Prizegiving

The final Gala concert and prizegiving began at 7pm, in "The Queen Hall" of the Black Diamond", which houses the Royal Library. Under the baton of Peter Anders, the capacity audience were treated to entertainment by the Allerod Accordion Orchestra.

With this being the inaugural year of the Chamber Music class, it seemed fitting that most of the performances this evening were the accordion with other instrumentalists.

Alexander Poeluev

The Allerod Accordion Orchestra performed with trumpet and violin players, including Christian Ellegaard, son of the famous Danish accordionist Mogens Ellegaard.

Duo Semionov (Viacheslav and his wife Natalia) performed some well known Russian music. Swedish jazz accordionist Lars Holm, together with saxophone player Inge Petersson gave some fantastic jazz renditions.

Prizewinners from the various categories also perfomed selections from their winning programmes, including Russian Alexander Poeluev, who won both the Coupe Mondiale and the International Piano Accordion competitions.
