of this CD causes me great satisfaction and, while not overlooking
the prestigious performers and the excellent group of composers
making it up, there is one protagonist who connects profoundly with
me; I refer to the accordion, played by an exceptional musician:
I remember how, half a century ago, I was initiated in music thanks
to a small accordion I played as an amateur. For that reason, I
use these lines to state my enthusiasm for the brilliant development
of the accordion, crystallising in an instrument of astonishing
technical and expressive resource, ideal for the music of our time.
This is demonstrated by the invaluable contribution of outstanding
Spanish composers from the "sixties generation" who, by
their works, and with an exceptional performer like Iñaki
Alberdi, have left us living testimony of the possibilities
of such a marvellous instrument.
This CD contains a selection of works for solo accordion and other
instruments, providing a demonstration of the versatility of a little-known
instrument and rendering modest homage to all the composers whose
contributions have helped develop the accordion repertoire.
