Hailed as 'Queen of the classical accordion', Mie Miki made her first public appearance at the age of five, and has since then given countless concerts. This CD brings together pieces that do not form part of her standard performance repertoire but are more old friends and new, childhood acquaintancies, and some surprise guests from a wholly different musical universe. Arrangement of works originally written for harpsichord (Daquin's Cuckoo or Handel's Blacksmith) or piano (Stravinsky's Tango and Schubert's two Moments musicaux) rub shoulders with original accordion compositions such as Wolfgang Jacobi's Serenade. Moods range from the irrepressible Miss Karting, straight out of the great French musette tradition, and the breakneck comedy of Road Runner, to the intense pathos of Astor Piazzolla's Chiquilin de Bachin and the calm serenity of A Spotless Rose, in Brahms' setting (originally an organ prelude).
