In view of the enormous upswing in popularity that the accordion has experienced as an avantgarde instrument in the last decades of the twentieth century, a systematic elaboration of the latest instrumental techniques and forms of expression, as well as detailed instructions on how to employ the accordion have been sorely lacking.
This book explains all the playing techniques, registers as well as tonal potentials and expressive possibilities of the accordion. It demonstrates the distinctive elements of these techniques and in addition, gives composers valuable information concerning notation.
A CD with examples of sound techniques and excerpts from the repertoire is included. An extra fold-out chart presents a full-sized layout of the treble and bass sides, helping composers to check fingering possibilities. This long-awaited book will be an essential tool for composers, performers and teachers.
