Riga-born Ksenija Sidorova is today one of the most eminent global ambassadors of the classical accordion. She has proudly borne the colors of her instrument in appearances in the world's leading halls and with the foremost orchestras. Here she pays homage to Piazzolla in her own way: 'Piazzolla the revolutionary, the ground-breaker, a man thinking ahead of his time... Playing this repertoire gave me a sense of artistic freedom and ignited my belief in advocacy of my instrument. For this album, I wanted to celebrate Piazzolla the innovator by pairing some his masterworks with pieces written by other composers for classical accordion, the majority of which I have premiered in recent years. Being of Russian heritage, I couldn't help noticing the similarity between the nostalgia of the tango and that of Russian composer Sergey Voitenko's Revelation. French accordionist-composer Franck Angelis's Fantasia is based on Piazzolla's waltz-tango, and the programme is completed by the Nocturne of Italian accordionist-composer Pietro Roffi and a piece by Sergey Akhunov.'
