Notes and Editorial Reviews

Virtuoso accordionist and bandonéonist Richard Galliano continues along the path blazed by Astor Piazzolla, developing the accordion and bandonéon as serious concert instruments. The task is daunting, yet liberating, as the lack of precedent renders somewhat moot the question which shook the world of orchestral composers in the twentieth century: what to do next?
The incorporation of folk forms and melody seems not only natural, but also totally necessary for an instrument with as long a history but as short a written repertory as the accordion. This explains the resulting music's combination of freshly vital new sounds with an instrumental timbre grounded in familiarity and nostalgia.
Though they lack the maturity of Piazzolla's
Read more compositions, Galliano's own are quite good. His strength resides in the performance, second only to Piazzolla's in its virtuosic command of the instrument, sensitive dynamics, and deeply emotional musicality. Read less
