As a leading classical Accordion’s composer, Franck Angelis is known worldwide for his challenging, virtuosic and melodic compositions showing all the possibilities and colors of the instrument. Recording an album dedicated to the French composer was something I always wanted to do. As many classical accordionists, I grew up and improve with his compositions.

About the album

As a leading classical Accordion’s composer, Franck Angelis is known worldwide for his challenging, virtuosic and melodic compositions showing all the possibilities and colors of the instrument.

Recording an album dedicated to the French composer was something I always wanted to do. As many classical accordionists, I grew up and improve with his compositions. Turning around the piece Impasse, full of intensity, melancholy and anger, I wanted to express and convey all those emotions through my playing giving at possible all the intensity needed in such a piece. The choice and the order of the pieces was thought to make the listener discovering or reassess Angelis world through many different colors.

“Impasse is just as much a test of the skills of the musician and recording engineer as it is a test for the emotional resiliance of the listener. If you thought accordion is not for you, think again! Guillaume Meral will enchant you with his album.”

Garmt van der Zel, Beter Beeld & Geluid
