Descriptions:
Without doubt, PEARL FAWCETT-ADRIANO has achieved international recognition as an outstanding accordion virtuoso, and she has done much to raise the standing of the accordion as a 'musical' instrument, both in Britain and abroad.

Her name as a child was PEARL FAWCETT, and she was born in South Yorkshire, England. Beginning accordion lessons at the age of eight, she had many successes in her early life, winning every major national competition run by the British Association of Accordionists (B.A.A.), including British Open section and British Commonwealth Challenge Cup (four successive times) and gaining the B.A.A. Diploma (with Distinction) at the age of 15.

Her first broadcast on BBC Radio and her first television appearance was at the age of 13, after which she appeared many times.

She became Junior World Champion (C.M.A. Trophée Mondiale) in Ancona, Italy; and the following year she became World Champion, in Hamburg, Germany.

She studied piano, 'cello, singing and all branches of music at the Royal Manchester College of Music, and after graduating with Honours, she became a Professor at the same College for a time. She then decided to concentrate on performing and turned fully professional.

She was the very first Western accordionist to do a solo classical concert tour of the former USSR and she made a tremendous impact on the Russian audiences, opening up a different world of music and sounds (on acoustic/electronic accordion which was not really known at that time in the USSR) and creating great interest in the piano accordion, after which it became far more popular.

Known previously as PEARL FAWCETT, she has had great success in her professional career. On the classical side, she has performed concerts and recitals on radio, and in such prestigious concert halls as London's Royal Albert Hall, Wigmore Hall and Purcell Room (Royal Festival Hall); Moscow's Tschaikovsky Hall and Leningrad's Philharmonic Hall; with concert tours in the former USSR and Europe, and appearances with such orchestras as the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and BBC Northern Symphony.

On the lighter side, there have been many appearances on BBC Radio (including "All kinds of Music", "Melodies for You", "Charlie Chester Show") and Television (including "Stars on Sunday" and "The Good Old Days"). She has made a number of outstanding recordings, and is also an excellent pianist. To suit the International scene, she now uses her full name - PEARL FAWCETT-ADRIANO.

Pearl Fawcett-Adriano's vast repertoire ranges from the classics to light music, French Musette and continental, and no matter what kind of music she plays, her marvellous technique and control of the instrument ensures that the music is interpreted to the full. Specialising on the acoustic/electronic accordion, she brings a completely new dimension to the instrument, and she has such a command of this instrument that she utilises it to the full orchestral and musical extent. Her subtle use of the expression pedal, split-second changes of registers and perfect control of the bellows produce a musical tapestry of multicoloured sounds and effects which have greatly impressed many people around the world.

She was coached and guided by her late husband - Maestro ADRIAN DANTE.
