This concerto is a tribute to all young, highly skilled accordionists. They made a huge effort to bring this traditional instrument on a higher, classical level in order to compete with all the commonly known symphonic instruments. It requires however a free bass accordion or bayan.
The level is medium. It is meant for advanced students and beginning professionals. The orchestra consists of strings, one flute, one oboe, one clarinet, one bassoon, one horn, timpani, cymbals.
The style is 'eclectic'. The second part is based on a Russian folk song.
Recorded with: GPO4 (woodwinds, brass), LSO (percussion), VSL (strings), XSamples (accordion)
Part I: Allegro Divertente
Part II: Andante alla russa
Part III: Rondo Giocoso
