ArtistsTeodoro Anzellotti (accordion)
György Kurtág heard Teodoro Anzellotti play and was sufficiently inspired to adapt his Játékok (a work in progress since 1973) for accordion. From this the idea was born of creating an album with the title 'Hungarian Diary'.
Kurtág's 'Games', originally inspired by the spontaneity of playing children, is joined by Ligeti's Musica ricercata. Composed by Ligeti in Budapest in 1951-3, before he left communist Hungary to live in the Western world, is a highly radical oeuvre, an experiment of minimalistic sound-and rhythm structures.
Finally 'Hungarian Diary' is completed with the inclusion of works by Franz Liszt. Liszt composed these compositions during the last ten years of his life and his pioneering innovations in the resolution of tonality in his late works created the impetus for Teodoro Anzellotti to record these pieces together.
Teodoro Anzellotti is one of the most important accordion players in the contemporary music scene. His musicality, virtuosity, and almost unlimited pleasure in the discovery of new sounds, have inspired composers like Luciano Berio, Heinz Holliger, Mauricio Kagel, Matthias Pintscher, Wolfgang Rihm, Salvatore Sciarrino, Dieter Schnebel and Jörg Widmann to create new works for the accordion.
