Program note:

Back in 2007, I was in Cortana, Italy for a couple of weeks, where I stayed at an apartment owned by the Swedish Society of Composers. My intention was to write lots of music during my visit, but I ended up not getting much done (too many culinary distractions). However, I did write down a few chords that I liked, but didn’t know what to do with. Ten years later, I wanted to finally use these chords for something, so I decided to let them serve as the basis for a solo accordion piece. The sound of the accordion turned out to be an excellent fit for my chords.
