Notes and Editorial Reviews

Pierre Cussac writes about his new release on Maguelone: “To consider a project around opera demanded, for the accordionist that I am, a true appropriation of the operatic repertoire. And to go from Mozart to Wagner, by way of Verdi, Weill or Gershwin: what a variety of languages! What a multitude of works! Voluntarily eclectic, this program wishes itself to be a front door to this often little-known world. My work as an arranger has therefore been protean, intertwining writing, improvisation and a search for tone color. What mattered to me was to keep this repertoire alive, under a very particular light, treating its original musical and dramaturgical essence with respect and rigor. A true challenge, this adventure has convinced me once Read more more of the incredible adaptability of the “squeeze box,” capable not only of echoing the depth and the power of the symphonic orchestra, but also of telling the most intimate and delicate stories. I therefore invite you to discover, or rediscover, these masterpieces with as much happiness as I have. Happy listening!” Read less
