One of the most original accordion players in Eastern Europe is a composer, an author of music for theatrical performances and movies. Zabelov’s music can be described as an experimental mix of accordion, avant-garde, jazz and neo-classical sounds. After performing all over Europe with his duo Gurzuf, Yegor focused on his solo career which sometimes expands to a trio where he continues to reveal the creative possibilities. He’s known to produce amazing sounds beyond the usual accordion music. Zabelov himself finds influences for his compositions in minimalist classics: Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Michael Nyman and also Arvo Pärt, Finnish experimental accordionist Kimmo Pohjonen and jazz trio Esbjörn Svensson Trio.
