Apricity - Concerto for Accordion & Orchestra (Julien Labro)The title of the concerto, Apricity, means the warmth & light of the sun that shines through during winter. In other words, it is the feeling of hope that allows one to move forward during times of darkness. With this idea in mind, the three movements attempt to capture and depict the ubiquitous journey of life and overcoming the inevitable ups and downs through hope.
