Podcast: Contemporary Danish works for accordion.

Invented during the early part of the nineteenth century, the accordion’s popularity soon soared and has been sustained ever since by its adaptability to many styles of music, from folk to heavy metal. Virtuoso performer Hanzhi Wang presents an intriguing compilation of classical works from Denmark, where numerous composers have followed the example of Per Nørgård in creating some of their most personal expressions for this instrument. Raymond Bisha takes us through a unique programme that exploits the full range of the instrument’s textural and tonal possibilities.
