Luka Juhart is musician, fabulous accordion player and music teacher. There is a determination, a stubborn conviction even, in everything he does. For a number of years now, he has been tirelessly devoted to collaborating with contemporary composers, commissioning their new works, entering into a creative dialogue with them, producing to date, either alone or in various ensembles, over 40 premieres of new pieces.
As an accordionist he has never operated merely in the space prescribed by the institution of Central European music tradition. He has already delved into contemporary free improvisation, a musical undertaking that transposes a musician trained to render written-down music perfectly into entirely unpredictable situations, confronting him with hitherto unknown risks. Part of his opting out from music specialization is also his interest in composition, out of which, in 2013, the piece hrUP for accordion emerged.
Luka Juhart is presenting compositions written for him, compositions which he had co-created or co-revised, and compositions which have influenced him.

The accordionís new sound profile builds on ideas which are not so much new as they are pushed, unjustly so, to the margins of the instrumentís sound potential, where they have remained unused or even hidden somewhere between the air buttons, valves, reeds and bellows.
