Notes:
Three Tributes was commissioned by the American Accordionists’ Association. Dvořák Largo: Variations and Theme was inspired by the first piece of classical music I can remember hearing as a child. In the concert hall, Pauline, Pauline is played in the round, with the musicians sometimes in motion in front of, behind, and to either side of the audience; since this recording attempts to convey the spatial and kinetic elements of the live performance, it can be particularly effective when experienced under headphones. Errol Verret, to whom Verret’s Valse is dedicated, was the original accordionist in Beausoleil and the first Cajun accordionist I heard live. Listen to the Fragrance refers to a wooden engraving at the Portland (Oregon) Classical Chinese Garden.

This recording is dedicated to the memory of my friends Pauline Oliveros, Evan Harlan, Faithe Deffner and Walter Kuehr.

On this recording, the accordions Guy plays are: Titano Virtuoso Convertor, Sonola SS20, and Scandalli bass accordion.
