Press Release

Federico Gili, Umbrian, thirty-seven-year-old accordionist, is engaged on several fronts, that of classical music but also that of jazz. A solo accordion album might seem a gamble today, but when behind there is a producer of the caliber of Daniele di Bonaventura, who add the liner notes of a master of the instrument like Richard Galliano you can also think of winning it, the bet. Galliano writes: “Federico pushes the apparent boundaries of the accordion, or better brings the harmonic and melodic possibilities of the instrument to life with this stunning solo performance…. I have much admiration for him and I want to thank him as he keeps drawing and pursuing this path which is more musical than technical, more moving than spectacular. Federico Gili is a great musician, a great artist”. In Cantabile, the title–track of the album, is present as a guest Daniele di Bonaventura, who with his bandoneon duets marvelously with the accordion of the leader. «Cantabile» is pure poetry: listening to believe!
