Accordion Concertino Premiere by Andreoglou Panagiotis and BGSU New Music Ensemble
Accordion Concertino is getting its world premiere at Bowling Green University (Ohio, USA) this February featuring Andreoglou Panagiotis (acc) as a solois performing it along with the Ensemble of New Music of BGSU under the direction of Christopher Dietz.
The piece was commissioned by BGSU New Music Ensemble and was composed a few weeks after Jean Claude Risset’s death. The fundamental structural idea is focused on using Shepard Tones, an auditory illusion first devised by Risset in the field of electronic music. The effect gives the auditory illusion of infinite upward or downward motion which can find a visual equivalent in M.C Escher’s painting “Ascending and Descending”.
