Why Me? Why does something happen or does not happen in our lives? What do we expect, what can we change and do? There is longing, conformity and emotional power in the music. At first the piece Why Me? was written for the string quartet ConTempo and accordionist Timo Kinnunen and premiered in Romania and Ireland, then the version for accordion and strings was premiered in NYC in 2013 Concert Season Finale by North/South Chamber Orchestra, distinguished accordionist William Schimmel, conductor Max Lifchitz, as well as became one out of four works that had been chosen to be performed by the I Solisti Veneti chamber orchestra, conductor Claudio Scimone, accordionist Oleg Vereschagin in Padova (Italy).
