Biography

Spontaneity and creativity are the main characteristics of Made in Belgium, an atypical cello-accordion duo, featuring two young musicians with unusual personal histories: Pierre Fontenelle, a Belgo-American cellist and Cristian Perciun, a Belgo-Moldovan accordionist. At the crossroads of jazz, pop, classical music and world music, Made in Belgium thrives with an unclassifiable repertoire resulting from the combination of the multiple artistic facets of the two musicians. The duo not only adapts and arranges numerous pieces of music, but also composes new pieces, combining their respective talents and the sounds of their instruments. As of yet, they have three recordings available on YouTube, one of which has been retransmitted on the Belgian classical music radio Musiq’3. The duo regularly performs in Belgium and France and has appeared in various festivals such as Les Fêtes de Wallonie, la Fête de la Musique à Namur 2017, Les Sentiers de Sart-Risbart, or Les Nuits Romantiques. In April 2017, Made in Belgium was awarded First Prize / Gold Medal at the 6th International Accordion Competition Accordé’Opale (Berck-sur-Mer, France) in the Chamber Music category.
