Compared to organ or piano literature, the list of accordion compositions is very short. Fortunately, in the last twenty years, many concerts, solo and chamber works, as well as arrangements for the main character of the Accordiofonica album have been written. The 20th-century compositions collected in the album show the great technical and timbre possibilities of the instrument, as well as its interesting connection with the orchestra.

The album includes three pieces: Suite for accordion and string orchestra by Józef Świder, Concerto classico by Bronisław Kazimierz Przybylski and Concerto for accordion and string orchestra "L'estro Fisarmonico" by the living composer Edward Sielicki. They were all performed by the soloist Klaudiusz Baran and the Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra. Witold Lutosławski in Łomża under the direction of Jan Miłosz Zarzycki.

The main character of this Album has great advantages and possibilities; perhaps some of them have yet to be discovered. Despite its many advantages, this instrument is still much less on stage than the violin or the piano. The accordion also occasionally presents itself with an orchestra. The virtues of the instrument shown on the album can become a new source of inspiration for both composers and performers. Will accordion chamber literature soon be enriched with new and interesting songs? Will the vibrations of the reeds shimmering with the colors of the rainbow inspire other composers? Will the various combinations of the soloist and the ensemble finally enliven the imagination of the audience? Time will tell, but the friendly name of the accordion (German - harmonious sound) evokes hope for all music lovers.
