Free Range Accordion Product Information
Free Range Accordion by Guy Klucevsek was released Jul 25, 2000 on the Starkland label. There's a wide world to be traversed inside this squeezebox. Free Range Accordion Guy Klucevsek is new music's ambassador of the accordion, as a performer, composer and commissioner of a wide variety of works whose intentions range from the rigorous to the amusing. Free Range Accordion That range is displayed here, from the striking astrophysical abstraction of Lois Vierk's 'Blue Jets Red Sprites' and the world peace mission of Aaron Kernis' 'Hymn' to the (literally) howling effervescence of Jerome Kitzke's 'Breath and Bone' and the off-the-wall campiness of Burt Bacharach's title song for the b-movie classic 'The Blob.

Free Range Accordion ' Santa Barbara Independent: "A funny, rich, and meaningful expression of this great American squeezeboxer's brilliance."

Free Range Accordion Product Description
All-Music Guide: "Another excellent album."
This Guy Klucevsek recording covers widely varying terrain, from the highly emotional to the bizarrely witty. The CD presents the premiere recording of the profoundly intense Hymn from Pulitzer winner Aaron Jay Kernis. He considers this work, based on his haunting memories of visits to concentration camps, as one of "a series of works which have taken a central position in my oeuvre."
Other deeply personal works are Somei Satoh's spiritually reflective Recitative (written after his stepfather's death) and Jerome Kitzke's boisterous Breath and Bone (a elegy for a good friend).
Klucevsek's Burt Bacharach arrangements move from the delightfully ridiculous to the sublimely ethereal in just a few short minutes.
