Notes and Editorial Reviews

"I've realized that even more that what is beautiful about the accordion is to play with a single finger sometimes, with a very pure, very pointed sound that gives a lot of poetry and emotion." - Richard Galliano on Vivaldi. A seasoned performer of jazz and French folk music, renowned accordion player Richard Galliano still approaches every piece with delicacy and excitement. The end result is a new take on even the most traditional and popular pieces. On Vivaldi, Galliano re-imagines (and re-arranges) one of the most performed pieces of all time, making it refreshing and groundbreaking yet familiar because of the accordion's warm, classic sound.

"The themes are constructed like songs: simple, repetitive melodic
Read more cells that can be developed. It's optimistic music. Even in the 'Winter' concerto. It ends with a great deal of energy, a great deal of hope, in a highly virtuoso fragment." - Richard Galliano on Vivaldi
