Oleg Fateev is a passionate artist who plays his Bajan as if he were a mistress.
Sensitive, intense and with Eastern European passion.
Recognized by all the great in the world of music and loved by his audience for his cordial personality.
“After silence, our ears are fresh and aware to listen music and our minds are full of empty space to receive and collect impressions. Silence prepares our perception to be awake and able to absorb new sound sensations. After silence, music comes with a delicate power that makes us understand how important silence is.”
Oleg presented his latest album "After Silence", assisted by his musical companions: Jeroen van Vliet on piano, viola player Oene van Geel and Wouter Vossen on violin.
Fateev is a musical giant from Moldavia, who has been living in the Netherlands for many years, but remained under the radar for far too long. Fortunately he has become a well-known figure on the world music scene, as a member of the Tiltan formation and with the successful duo that he forms with his other half, the Brazilian percussionist Simone Sou.

"Britta Maria, Maurits Fondse and Oleg Fateev, three musicians with outstanding skills ensured an enchanting evening"
Leo van Gelderen, Noord-Hollands Dagblad
"Sometimes a concert makes you intensly happy. Today was somethimes. Tears, laughter, intens enjoy. The full round voice of Britta Maria who seduces and touches your heart, the mischievous and emotional performance of Maurits Fondse and the interaction between the two, complemented with the heavenly performance of Oleg Fateev who, as he really did, makes love his his accordion, made me want to stay for hours, to listen, to sing, to dance and to move to France ... Sigh..., what a graciousness in a copple of hours. Ahhh .. More, more! All Francophiles and bon vivants, you have to go to this show! These three people give you a glimpse of heaven."

Bert Prinsen, about the album presentation
I was deeply touched by your music during the performance 'Huiswaarts'
in the Vestzak Theatre in Dordrecht on September 29th.
It brought me back to my youth for a while.
