Why play early music on the accordion?
Why not? Aren’t they both “wind” instruments?
Historically it is obviously strange but from the first time we've rehearsed I understood that the accordion would be able to perform both the harpsichord and organ repertoires!
This triggered my curiosity and increased the need to play together.
Giorgio has such an incredible talent that it makes everything easy and possible.
It will be an “incredible challenge”, some will not like it and some won’t agree, but I am a strong believer that in life it is important to try!
