Notes and Editorial Reviews

French jazz accordionist Richard Galliano records his first classical album ever. Richard Galliano is an extremely versatile musician, whose many artistic collaborations and encounters include playing with Enrico Rava, Charlie Haden, Michel Portal, Jan Garbarek, Martial Solal, Anouar Brahem, and Paolo Fresu, to name just a few.

"Bach's music is universal. When I play it, I don't change a note, not a breath, not a rest...I play the text complete, without any adaptation." -- Richard Galliano

 Amazing SQUEEZEBOX Classical Bach February 5, 2016 By malcolm macdonald (Strathfieldsaye, Vic) See All My Reviews "Brilliant mixing of interesting Bach interpretation by an outstanding musical virtuosity. Listening one does not realise the source of the soloist is a piano accordion . Galliano is brilliant both interpreting jazz and now classical pieces. Enjoy!!!" Report Abuse
