Camilleri: Accordion Concerto, I. Andante moderato

The three works on this recording come from the first phase in the musical development of Malta’s prolific composer Charles Camilleri, and are some of his most rewarding and enduring works. The Piano Concerto No. 1 ‘Mediterranean’ owes much to the Romantic concerto tradition but is suffused with the distinctive flavours of music from southern Europe and North Africa. A virtuoso of the accordion, Camilleri wrote a Concerto for the instrument that journeys humorously from the eighteenth to the twentieth centuries. The Malta Suite, a set of colourful dances, is widely considered the island’s musical emblem.
