The advent of digital technologies over the past decade has resulted in the most significant technical changes to the piano accordion since the 1920s. These changes potentially give rise to new opportunities for performance, and prompt accordionists to consider ways in which playing techniques may be adapted so that the authenticity of the acoustic instrument, on which the digital instrument is modeled, is retained.
