Notes and Editorial Reviews

Teodoro Anzellotti plays Ligeti, Kurtág, and Liszt and arranges these compositions for accordion; it is remarkable that these arrangements are authorized by Kurtág 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.
