About

Several reasons explain the choice of the German word "Schrift" for the title of this recording. It is at once an affectionate nod to Fanny Vicens' years of study and concertizing in Trossingen, Stutgart and Luzern, an homage to the European region where the accordion originally flourished and to the pioneers who opened the instrument to an ever-widening repertoire, and the expression of a topic that obsesses everyone who loves the accordion - what and how should one write for this instrument today? Like the word "writing", its exact translation, Schrift refers to a hand-written or printed trace as well as its content, its connotation. Using the word Schrift for this album's title calls up questions of how and what. Vicens provides seven possible responses in her performances of seven works by composers of today. This programme is both a tribute to the composers who have thought about and written for the accordion, and a homage to the musicians who premiere their pieces - all the works heard here were written for and dedicated to accordionists. The album also showcases Fanny Vicens' outstanding virtuosity, placing her firmly at the zenith of contemporary music making.
