||The present work
fills a gap that has long existed in the accordion field with respect to
its history and literature. Earlier publications in this area are
either outdated, as for example "Petite histoire de l'accordeon"
(Pierre Monichon), "Das Akkordeon" (collective authors) and
"Dreissig Jahre Neue Music fur Harmonika: 1927-57" (Armin
Fett), or else their scope is purely regional, giving the impression that
accordion history is evolving in relatively few countries. ACCORDION
RESOURCE MANUAL by Joseph Macerollo demonstrates conclusively that
parallel activities are taking place in many countries to enlarge the
repertoire and establish the accordion as a viable artistic medium.
I am confident that this book, with its wealth of
information and knowledge, will make a very significant contribution
towards this goal, and I feel sure that it will also encourage
accordionists to think and perform in a wider and more international
context than ever before.
