Renowned for his unparalleled contributions to Baroque opera, Jean-Philippe Rameau stands as one of the era's most important composers. The brilliance of his compositions is now reimagined through a more modern lens on this new album from Finnish accordionist Janne Valkeajoki. Through a unique and innovative approach, Rameau's meticulously crafted movements find new life with the accordion-an instrument that adds a fresh, vibrant layer to the music, bringing Rameau's innovative spirit into the contemporary realm and highlighting the accordion's versatility as both a singing and an orchestral instrument. This new album comprises two suites, each movement creating a unique atmosphere of it's own.
