Is just arrived the new CD of the italian accordionist Corrado Rojac!!
Corrado Rojac, accordion
CD - Limen Classic & contemporary
First Italian earning an accordion Diploma at a State Conservatorio, Corrado Rojac is considered one of the most important italian accordionists. In addiction to an intense soloist and chamber activity, this eclectic artist is engaged to the development of contemporary accordion’s literature, working with many composers and offering first performances of many pieces, often also his.
In this CD, he takes the listener into an enthralling and suggestive journey to the discovery of the accordion, proposing tracks linked by a common thread: the musical topos of the variation.
The album opens with some of Johann Sebastian Bach’s (1685-1750) Partitas on “O Gott du frommer Gott”, originally written for the organ, and ends with a fundamental piece of the German accordion repertoire, Hans Brehme’s Paganiniana, touching leading authors, like: Ettore Pozzoli, Anatoli Kusjakov e Gianluca Verlingieri.
