The possibilities of the modern accordion are vast and the solo repertoire, developed in the last sixty years, ranges from originals to transcriptions.
The first includes the most interesting original Italian pieces from the second half of the twentieth century. This is when the accordion started to capture the interest of a more “cultured” and famous public such as Fugazza and Pozzoli.
The second includes variations on Paganini pieces by two well known German composers who started to appreciate the accordion in the postwar period. It also includes two works from the Russian repertoire : The Tschaikin Suite, inspired by early music but rich with modern influences and the Iwanow piece which takes its inspiration from the folk music of Eastern Europe.
The third program develops the traditional roots of the accordion with a series of traditional pieces revised in a classical way. It includes two pieces from the genre known as “varietè” as well as the classic Piazzolla and the famous Cavatina di Figaro, performed using “bellow shake”, a fantastic sound effect typical of the modern accordion.
