Sviackevicius' CD recording offers contemporary accordion music
of a more intellectual nature. There are no Piazzolla tangos,
or involvement of the accorion as a folk music instrument, however,
there are hints of jazz and rock here and there. The heart of
the programme, Sofia Gubaidulina's work on religious subject -
"De Profundis" - can be called a classic of contemporary
music for accordion, as well as of a new approach to this instrument.
Works such as "Alone" by the Finnish composer Erkki
Jokinen, "Phantasie 84 " by the German composer Jurgen
Ganzer, and "Preambolo & Toccata" by the early deceased
Polish composer and accordionist Bogdan Precz are often included
in concert repertoires for solo accordionists. Contemporary Lithuanian
music for accordion is represente dhere by 3 generations of composers:
Nomeda Valanciute's "A Farewell to Arms", Feliksas Bajoras'
"Aliatyvas", and "Dialogai" for accordion
and bassoon by Jonas Tamulionis, who is perhaps the most engaged
composer of music for accordion in present - day Lithuania.
