Duo van Vliet are an accordion and viola duo, comprising Rafał Łuc (accordion) and Ian Anderson (viola). They began playing together in January 2011 while they were both students at the Royal Academy of Music, London. Their love of contemporary music led them to name themselves after the late, great Don van Vliet, better known by his avant-garde rock persona, Captain Beefheart. In their inaugural year they reached the final of the Royal Over-Seas League Chamber Music Competition in London, and since then have dedicated themselves to expanding the viola and accordion repertoire. They make a point of commissioning as many composers as possible to write for them, and have a long list of desired future collaborations, time- and funding-allowing.
Recent highlights include the release of their debut album, Lachrymae ReVisited, on Orchid Classics (made possible by generous support from Creative Scotland, Help Musicians UK, Pigini Accordions, and many of their friends, family, colleagues); performing Georg Friedrich Haas’ double concerto for viola, accordion and chamber ensemble, “….”, with the Orkiestra Muzyki Nowej (New Music Orchestra), Katowice; their recital at St. Magnus Festival, Orkney, which was recorded for broadcast on BBC Radio 3; and their debut recital at the National Forum of Music, Wrocław, which included 3 world premieres commissioned by the duo.
