£12.00 inc. VAT

Claudio Jacomucci contrasts ancient and modern works transcribed for classical accordion

Jacomucci hits the spot again with this album of mostly transcriptions from works originally intended for other instruments or groups of instruments. There are two original works for classical accordion too, Passing by Martin Lohse and one which closes the album by Jacomucci himself. Jacomucci places works, from the Renaissance and Baroque period through to the Romantic and Contemporary eras, in counterpoint with each other and the concept works brilliantly.

Claudio Jacomucci contrasts ancient and modern works transcribed for classical accordion

Jacomucci hits the spot again with this album of mostly transcriptions from works originally intended for other instruments or groups of instruments. There are two original works for classical accordion too, Passing by Martin Lohse and one which closes the album by Jacomucci himself dedicated to his dear canine companion, Lupo (“Wolf”) who was by a strange twist of fate killed by a wolf. Needless to say this album will be one for the collector and student alike and is played with all the flair and good taste that will delight both. Jacomucci places works, from the Renaissance and Baroque period through to the Romantic and Contemporary eras, in counterpoint with each other and the concept works brilliantly.
