Notes & Reviews:

What seems more natural than to think of the flamenco? But its precursors, the fandango and the bolero, had already created an uproar in the years between 1750 and 1815. The melodies and rhythms of the fandango have fascinated the accordionist and Romance scholar Helmut C. Jacobs since his first CD Fandangos of 2011. He continued his research and found even more works that testify that both dances had been practiced in all of Europe, both in unpretentious versions and in art music. Especially when listening to Antonio Soler's extremely virtuoso fandango, one can understand how Casanova had the impression that people fell in to a kind of trance. Both dances have a wonderful infectious effect - as an elaborately improvised techno music of the 18th Century. The recorded boleros are representative of the 18th Century, and it is surprising how little they have in common with the famous Bolero by Maurice Ravel, whose typical bolero rhythm is obviously not present in the early Spanish boleros. Except for the fandangos by Antonio Soler and Johann Gottfried Pratsch all other works are first recordings. As a realization on the accordion however, these are first recordings, too. All pieces recorded here have been realized true to the original (without changing the tone pitches or structure) on a free-bass accordion with chromatic button manuals on either side, allowing the use of all five fingers on each hand. In the extensive booklet the European success story of the bolero and fandango is presente in detail.
