"Genesis", the debut album of accordionist Bartosz Glowacki, contains music from various eras and styles. On this release you can listen to baroque transcriptions alongside original accordion compositions. The album starts with Sonata in A major K.208 by Domenico Scarlatti followed by L’Egyptienne by J.P. Rameau. Composition for solo accordion The Ruined Cathedral, was written by Vaclav Trojan after the sight of the ruins of Dresden cathedral, destroyed in the 2nd World War. De profundis by Sofia Gubaidulina is one of the most significant in the accordion canon of the 20th century and refers to the opening of Psalm 130 – Out of the depths [I call to Thee, O Lord]. Performance of Pari Intervallo, by Estonian composer Arvo Pärt, originally written for four parts is the first version released for solo accordion. Double Concerto by Astor Piazzolla concludes this album, featuring a fantastic musician Rob Luft. The blend of electric guitar and accordion with chamber orchestra with improvised melodic ornaments is a homage to Nuevo Tango style in classical form of a concerto.
