Klaus Paier has long been a solitary figure in the accordion scene. The Austrian, living in Carinthia, has
explored the sound of the accordion from the very beginning and has attempted to expand the borders of the instrument both in terms of technique and composition - after all, he remains fascinated by the openness and freedom of music.
The new double album, Solitaire, is virtually a quintessence of this work. For the first time, solo
recordings without multi-track technology move the pure Klaus Paier into focus. Paier's indefatigable
melodic ingenuity and that typical Paier style, pregnant with tension, creating space through pauses,
both achieve more dynamism and tonal colour than ever on Solitaire
