Album Notes
In Welcome to Heaven… David DiGiuseppe presents masterfully rendered American, French, and Celtic dance tunes, staking out new territory on his piano accordion. Although the button accordion has long been accepted as a folk instrument, very few piano accordion players have utilized their instrument’s flexibility and orchestral potential and applied it to this idiom.

But David DiGiuseppe has. In this remarkable and lovely CD, DiGiuseppe’s accordion breathes life into a series of suites and dances, and even takes the place of the driving fiddle in two old timey numbers–and it works!

"Boy, can this guy play! Some people can fake a chord or two on the piano accordion, maybe play a little harmony, but David DiGiuseppe has done his homework, chosen some great material, assembled a bunch of flexible and talented sidemen and the result is captivating…(T)here is a wide and stunning array of music represented here…DiGiuseppe handles them all deftly.

…The arrangements are right on the money for the particular appeal of each tune, and DiGiuseppe resists the impulse to go over the top with so much talent at his disposal. The angels don’t get much better than this."
Mary DesRosiers, Sing Out!, Vol 41 #4, 1997
