Salvatore Accardo is an outstanding Italian violin virtuoso, best known as a master of the works of Niccolò Paganini, but equally accomplished across a wide variety of repertory for the instrument. Accardo met Astor Piazzolla in Buenos Aires in l969 while on a tour of Latin America. He treasures the discussions they had, and Piazzolla even dedicated his Milonga in D (the third track on this record) to Accardo.
"I believe that Piazzolla’s place is with the great musicians of the 20th century, like Gershwin, who have been able to convey into their compositions, in an absolutely original way, the musical currents of their time, thus creating a personal and highly distinctive style. If you happen to listen for the first time to one of his pieces, you understand immediately that it’s by Piazzolla. His melodies are unique, yearning. And so is the rhythm, of which we have already said. Astor was a truly complete musician, who combined an extraordinary inventive talent with an exceptional interpretative technique, the fruit of many years of hard study and work." - Salvatore Accardo

story of fonè
In the context of classical and jazz music market, fonè proposes three decades of recordings using advanced techniques, aimed at the recovery of the original musical atmospheres.
Each new recording is the result of a passionate encounter between art and the art of execution and aims to recreate and reproduce the same spirit with which the works of the past have been performed. One basic feature that makes the difference between fonè and others, is the recording of musical works in natural places and original, constant production that leads to choose from time to time historically more space? Suitable for: church, theater, villa, living room ...
All this is done by retrieving a simple incision that does not do violence to the music: all the equipment is in high definition. Using pairs of valves Neumann microphones in the years 1947 and 1949 (U47, U48 and M49) using techniques very natural timbre bimicrofoniche field effect. These microphones have an important story: they are the microphones used to record the Beatles at Abbey Road Studio and RCA for the "Living Stereo."
