Feat.: Evita, Jimmie Wilson, Matthias Matzke www.uniccord-music.comNew Album: „Wings“ World Music „Pop Kisses to Accordion …!“ UNICCORD opens up a new chapter in music history. Pop and accordion become one on a lively ball night. The band UNICCORD was founded around the exceptional accordionist, MATTHIAS MATZKE, the delightful vocalist, EVITA and the compelling vocalist, JMMIE WILSON. UNICCORD’s debut album ‘Wings’ contains compositions from the band that have real hit potential along with two completely new and fresh cover versions of “Jessica” and “Tanz” from THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND and HISS respectively. On hearing the album, millions of accordion and harmonica players will discover a completely new way of playing their instruments in an exciting and fresh new way.

In order to do justice to World Music as a genre and following the successful example of CARLOS SANTANA, the individual pieces were recorded using different vocal performers. However, the basic structure of the vocals based around EVITA and JIMMIE WILSON always remains the same.

Matthias Matzke
Management & Booking

One in a million. Brilliant composer, founder of a new style of music on an ‘old’ instrument, virtuoso, “Paganini” of the keyboard and an “Eric Clapton” on the accordion, who plays each note in a manner incomparable to any other musician. Matthias Matzke, virtuoso and gentleman. Following his early musical training on the glockenspiel, Matthias began taking accordion lessons at the Kolping Music School in the town of Sü.en with Anatoli Lick. His music teacher knew full well how to make the whole gamut of accordion literature palatable for him. So much so, in fact, that the 30 minutes he spent practising every day, which in the beginning his parents patiently had to persuade him to do, soon turned into longer sessions on his own volition. As his interest in music grew, his passion for another instrument began to blossom in 2002 when he started taking classical piano lessons from Anna Tichy. Th older he got, the more he became to drawn to improvisation and composition: in 2006, he got the chance to express his creativity on the accordion by taking lessons with Hans-Günther Kölz and also discovered some highly inspiring musicians who play jazz piano; first Alexander Erhardt, then Martin Rosengarten after. After winning first prize at the German Federal Music Competition for Youth, Matthias was also awarded the Leonberg Youth Music Prize in 2008. He received the award for two of his performances in the Baden-Württemberg State Youth Orchestra where Matthias performed Ole Schmidt’s Symphonic Fantasy as a soloist. In the context of the 2014 Rotarian Summer Course, Matthias was awarded the Franz Liszt Foundation Prize by the University of Music FRANZ LISZT Weimar. Soprano Leonie Kratz also won the foundation’s prize for the second time. The encounter between the two led to an intensive cooperation and friendship. In 2016, Matthias received the Hohner Conservatory Advancement Award on being awarded for the first time, and also the Schubart Culture Prize from the town of Geislingen, where he went to school and loves to perform on stage if given the chance on occasion. Matthias has been an integral part of the UNICCORD success formation since 2019.

Steeped in the tradition of Django Reinhardt, Häns’che Weiss and Titi Winterstein, MARIO TRISKA is a legend of gypsy music. Mario studied classical music at the conservatories in Maastricht and Brussels. “For as long as I can remember, I’ve always loved music. It’s part of who I am. My people are a people of music. For generations, passion has been flowing in the veins of the gypsies, delighting people with warmth of heart and intensity.” MARIO TRISKA, the devil’s violinist, has played on major stages worldwide. He has mastered his instrument like few others and had a joint creative period with ANDRÉ RIEU. MARIO plays Hungarian gypsy music with his ensemble. In order to meet his own exacting standards, the list of his fellow musicians during this tour reads like a Who’s Who of European gypsy musicians. Each individual is a multi-award-winning musician. But one thing is for sure: the arrow from Mario’s bow will surely hit the heart of anyone with a love of music. His mission is to bring the history and culture of the gypsies to life. His musical performance is accompanied by pictures in the form of a multimedia show. The pictorial material ranges from the origin of the Sinti and Roma people in India, their long journey to Europe, their persecution and suffering and their history and culture, right up to the current day. www.mario-triska.com
