Classical Accordion Lecture/Recital

Doktorski's educational and entertaining lecture/recitals display unabashed virtuosity, mature musicianship, and the seemingly-limitless possibilities of one of the world's youngest acoustic instruments (patented in Vienna in 1829). Audiences have been thrilled with his transcriptions of familiar classical works, and have been surprised and delighted by the substantial body of original works composed for the accordion. Truly an eye (and ear) opener for most listeners.

Doktorski's program consists of pieces from the following list:
