Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

On this new and interesting release, the works of two Italian Renaissance masters are performed on the accordion. The accordion is slowly emancipating, shedding its "light entertainment" image and claiming its right as a serious and valuable musical instrument. Its possibilities are enormous, its sounds and sonorities as varied as a church organ. This new recording presents keyboard works by Frescobaldi and Gesualdo, works which were intended for either harpsichord or organ, and therefore may be played on any keyboard instrument. The realization on accordion is fascinating in its fusion of both the harpsichord (its tactile precision) and the organ (its sustained polyphony.) Italian Francesco Gesualdi is one of the world's foremost accordionists. He commissioned works for his instrument with many contemporary composers, and is well connected with composers such as Marucio Kagel, Sofia Gubaidulina and Wolfgang Rihm.
