Lidia Kaminska, classical accordionist
Seven-time winner of national and international competitions, Kaminska has stunned audiences with her beauty, charm, and virtuosic playing of works from Bach, Scarlatti, and Astor Piazzolla to contemporary Russian composer Sophia Gubaidulina. With a MA degree from the Chopin Academy of Music in Warsaw, Kaminska was the first person in the Unites States to receive a doctoral degree in accordion performance. She plays both the accordion and bandoneon in her interview with Jill Pasternak.
