The Accordion in Contemporary Music

MMA exterior



The accordion is an uncharted musical world, a polyphonic instrument with enormous technical capabilities and a warm, rich, passionate sound. Originally associated with popular music, it expresses a portion of the collective consciousness of the entire world, and at the same time it develops, venturing into the territory of ‘serious’ music.
A duo for cello and bayan by Tatar-Russian composer Sofia Gubaidulina, a musical meditation on the meaning of the cross. Also works by Greek accordion composers George Hatzimichelakis, Costas Tsougras, and Christos Zerbinos, as well as three tangos by Ástor Piazzolla for bandoneon.
