Owen Murray, Head of Accordion at the Royal Academy of Music, joins guest presenter Ben Saunders to introduce us to the accordion ahead of Monday’s LIOF Live recital by Qianyu Zhang, one of Owen’s students. Born in Scotland, and now splitting his time between Copenhagen and London, Ben and Owen discuss the difference between piano and classical accordions, and why Owen has made it his mission to raise the instrument’s status in the UK.
