Description:
Pearl Fawcett plays the music of Pietro Frosini.

Pietro Frosini was born in Catania, Sicily, in 1886. He began to play the accordion at the age of six,and soon afterwards was admitted to the Music Conservatoire where he studied clarinet and harmony. While still in his teens, he joined the British Navy for two years, after which he settled in Malta where he was "discovered" by American talent scouts.

He emigrated to America as a young man and became very successful as a performer in vaudeville, recording and broadcasting. His live daily broadcasts on W.O.R. radio in New York covered a period of twenty years non-stop. A pioneer and virtuoso of the accordion, he carried on performing and composing right to the end despite many years of ill - health. He died in New York in 1951. Frosini wrote music in his own unique, very atractive style, and his compositions are known and loved by accordionists worldwide. I had the privilege of meeting him personally and ten of the compositions on this recording were given to Adrian Dante by Frosini shortly before he died. Some of these are recorded here for the first time.
