New Album – Cueurs desolez
“Accordionists and countertenors are thus a very specific type of musicians. They need to build up their repertoire in the present day, while investigating their respective instrument’s possibilities and potential relevance for interpreting repertoire from the past. And what better testimony of that vocation and that endeavor could one have than this current CD release?”
