We continue talking to Los Angeles based John Torcello about modern accordions, creative ways forward for the instrument, playing with orchestras and conductors like Esa-Pekka Salonen, Gustavo Dudamel and others. John talks about the company he founded with his borther and resuming his career as a professional accordionist. You will also hear the background story to the SoundSketches, which you hear throughout parts 1 and 2. We are also discussing the future of the instrument and more.

Be sure to check out his recordings on Amazon. If you'd like to know more about John, feel free to contact him on Facebook.
