« Sapphire » or « Saphir » in French is a work I originally composed for accordion orchestra only. However it can be played by a small set of 5 accordions without any problem. Of baroque inspiration, I wrote this work in 2012 for the occasion of a friend’s wedding. It includes an optional drum part to delight Rondo Veneziano fans.
