Hungarian Diary - Kurtag: Játékok; Liszt: Bagatelle sans tonalité; Nuages gris; Resignazione; Ligeti: Musica ricercata / Teodoro Anzellotti: accordion

Notes & Reviews:

Teodoro Anzellotti plays Ligeti, Kurtag, and Liszt and arranges these compositions for accordion; it is remarkable that these arrangements are authorized by Kurtag and Ligeti! The first soloist voyage leads to Hungary, to the end of the 19th century, a sojourn which lasts more than 100 years and ends after the decline of the Danube Monarchy and the divesture of the Iron Curtain. This recording seems like a sound from Claudio Magris's literary portrait "Donau": Anzellotti shines with virtuosity, and the sound of his accordion directs us into the depths of the Hungarian soul.

The way Anzellotti negotiates the fast-flying 20th Variation is remarkable (his agility in the work's more playful episodes, such as Variation 23, at times defies belief)... Varied colors and rhythms abound throughout the performance.
