What Are You Doing For World Accordion Day? - International

by Harley Jones
What are you doing for World Accordion Day to promote the accordion in your country? World Accordion day is on May 6th, which is the day the accordion was patented in 1829.

World Accordion Day was started in 2009 by the CIA and has been very successful, generating a lot of positive publicity for the accordion. A key part of this event is the World Accordion Day website.

Every association, group, orchestra, performer and teacher, is asked to actively support this event by encouraging national and local accordion activities to happen in their country on this day or the weekend either side of Accordion Day if that should be more convenient.

Everyone can register their World Accordion Day activity on the website and send a report of their event after, for that website.

No event is too big or too small. ALL accordion events celebrating World Accordion Day are welcome. This is a CIA promotion for the accordion in which every accordion enthusiast can participate and help bring our accordion world together as well as strongly promote the accordion.

Schweitzer Botschafter Christoph Bubb zu Besuch bei Müller - Österreich/Schweiz

by Diatonic News
Der Schweizer Botschafter Herr Bubb, ist seit 2014 in Wien Botschafter und besuchte die Firma Müller Harmonika in Bad St. Leonhard.

Bubb sagte: "Es gehört zu meinen angenehmen Aufgaben, alle Bundesländer zu bereisen. Primär hatte ich eine Aufwartung der Bürgermeisterin von Klagenfurt gemacht, aber ich habe auch den Wunsch gehabt, die wirtschaftliche Präsenz der Schweiz hier in Kärnten zu besuchen. Das war gar nicht so einfach, denn sie ist in anderen Bundesländern stärker vertreten. Umso erfreuter war ich, bei dieser Gelegenheit die Firma Müller kennen zu lernen, deren Chefin ursprünglich aus der Schweiz, dem Wallis kommt."

Eindrücke über das Unternehmen
Bubb sagte: "Ich bin sehr beeindruckt und man sieht eine gewisse Ähnlichkeit zwischen der schweizerischen Uhrmacherkunst und hier in dem Unternehmen, nämlich eine hohe präzise, mechanische Handwerkskunst. Eine Ziehharmonika besteht aus rund 2500 Einzelteilen und die Mehrzahl wird hier im Haus einzeln hergestellt.
Ich schätze das außerordentlich, dass diese Art von Handwerk einen fruchtbaren Boden hat. Es scheint gut zu gehen und das ist äußerst erfreulich, dass ein kleines, mittelständiges Familienunternehmen längerfristig gesichert ist."

Müller Harmonika ist für Herrn Bubb:
Tradition - Präzision - Idealismus

Scandalli Bandoneon Introduced at Frankfurt Musikmesse - Italy

by Diatonic News
Alexander Nikolic
by Elisa Lanari, Scandalli Accordions

Scandalli BandoneonAt the recent Frankfurt Musikmesse in Germany, Italian accordion manufacturer Scandalli produced for the first time in its history, a bandoneon.

Bandoneon has a long history, starting from 1840, and during that time, some history books claim that more than 100 different layouts of bandoneon have been created.

Nowadays the only system used by Argentineans to play tango is the Rheinische Tonlage (Rheinische pitch), also called Argentinean system.

This bisonoric system (sometimes called “diatonic”) has 142 notes, 38 buttons in the right side and 33 buttons in the left side with 2 reeds tuned in octave (like 8+4 registers in accordion). The new Scandalli bandoneon is made in Rheinische system with five extra notes, so the final range is with 152 notes, 39+37 buttons.

Scandalli is also planning to make the unisonoric model (sometimes called “chromatic”), better known as “Peguri system”, that is often considered the favorite system by accordion players.

One of the most important features is that nearly all traditional bandoneons have zinc plates, and the Scandalli bandoneon uses the same material. The instrument is completely handmade using different high quality woods, although the most used is Palisander in order to get the typical warm and deep sound of the old bandoneon.

For Scandalli, the "bandoneon project" is not only a new model. It also represents the "meeting point" between skilled artisans and designers and a great musician, who worked together for several months in order to achieve the "highest level bandoneon".

Thanks to the outstanding musical, technical and artistic competence of Aleksandar Nikolic, well known teacher, bandoneonist and leader of the famous Beltango Quintet, for his part in developing this bandoneon product. Picture below of Aleksandar Nikolic performing on the new instrument at the Frankfurt Musikmesse.

Bandoneon and Harp by Carel Kraayenhof & Lavinia Meijer - Netherlands

by Diatonic News
Concert: 05 06 2016/20:15 h
Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ - Grote Zaal
Piet Heinkade 1, 1019 BR Amsterdam

De magische combinatie van harp en bandoneón

Dit concert brengt twee bijzonder gepassioneerde en veelzijdige musici samen. Bandoneonist Carel Kraayenhof is een grootheid binnen de Argentijnse tango, wereldwijd geroemd om zijn ontroerende spel en zijn grote kennis van de tangotraditie. Lavinia Meijer geldt als een van de beste harpisten van dit moment. Opmerkelijk is haar gedrevenheid om, naast de uitvoering van het klassieke harprepertoire, nieuwe wegen in te slaan, zoals deze succesvolle samenwerking met Carel Kraayenhof.

Op het programma staan eigen arrangementen van milonga’s, tango’s en andere Argentijnse, Spaanse en Italiaanse composities, maar ook stukken van Carel Kraayenhof en Lavinia Meijer zelf. In het najaar van 2015 verscheen hun eerste cd.

English:
The magical combination of harp and bandoneón

This concert brings together two very passionate and versatile musicians together. Bandoneon player Carel Kraayenhof is a quantity within the Argentine tango, known worldwide for his moving game and his great knowledge of the tango tradition. Lavinia Meijer is one of the best harpists of the moment. Noteworthy is her passion, in addition to the implementation of the classical harp repertoire, to break new ground, as this successful collaboration with Kraayenhof.

The program includes own arrangements of milongas, tango and other Argentine, Spanish and Italian compositions, but also pieces of Kraayenhof and Lavinia Meijer himself. In the fall of 2015 they released their first CD.

18ème festival Trad’Envie - France

by Diatonic News
du mercredi 4 au samedi 7 mai 2016

Trad’Envie est une association qui est née à Pavie, dans le Gers, de l’évolution d’un groupe d’Arts et de Traditions Populaires appelé « Ensemble Populaire de Gascogne ».

Dans les années 90, l’association a arrêté son activité de groupe de danses traditionnelles se produisant en spectacle, pour se lancer dans la création d’un événement : « Le Festival Trad’Envie », ainsi que l’organisation de bals et de stages tout au long de l’année.

Le Festival Trad’Envie est maintenant une référence, tant par sa qualité musicale que par la convivialité qui y règne, image de marque de notre département du Gers et de notre région Midi-Pyrénées. Et depuis 2014, un salon de lutherie est présent, avec des artisans venus des quatre coins de France et d’Europe.

L’idée force est la culture populaire dans ses différentes composantes. La motivation principale reste l’envie de découvrir les richesses culturelles des Arts Populaires sous l’aspect des musiques, danses et chants traditionnels ; faire se côtoyer des groupes musicaux aux accents électriques, les voir s’écouter les uns les autres, se connaître, s’apprécier, jouer ensemble.

C’est aussi faire découvrir au public local et national, qu’il soit professionnel ou amateur, des musiques traditionnelles occitanes mais aussi venues d’ailleurs, les mettre en contact avec des inconditionnels de bals folks de régions plus lointaines, permettre l’échange et l’enrichissement musical.

International Gipsy Festival - Tlburg/Netherlands

by Diatonic News
The International Gipsy Festival is a Tilburg festival focused on the art and culture of the Roma and Sinti community. The first International Gipsy Festival took place in 1997, at various locations in Tilburg. Since 2003 the festival has moved to the Interpolis garden. The gipsy festival is known for its efforts to break new ground. Each year it offers a variety of musical surprises and unusual combinations. The gipsy genre is widely interpreted. It is the flagship that incorporates a large number of subgenres, such as: balkan, flamenco, klezmer, gipsy swing, jazz; but also hip-hop, brass band and folk are common musical styles at the gipsy festival. Musical groups and dancers from Europe, Russia, and India have graced the stage in the past. Invariably, a varied ensemble is invited over to Tilburg.
The intention of the International Gipsy Festival is to bring as many aspects of gipsy culture to the attention of a wide audience. The gipsy festival serves as an international platform where attention is requested for the influence of the gipsies on our present society. Therefore the festival aims to investigate, encourage, and present this influence on festival days, to serve as a source of inspiration for musicians, dramatists, artists, photographers and cinematographers. In addition, it wants children and adolescents to come into contact with this culture by offering educational programs.


Festival location
Veemarktkwartier Tilburg

The festival takes place in the garden of the St Jozef church and 013 Poppodium.
The entrance to the festival is at the Veemarktstraat.
The location and facilities are accessible for people with disabilities.

Fleadh Nua 2016 - Ireland

by Diatonic News
2016 Fleadh Nua in Ennis promises to be an exciting and innovative festival, full to the brim with Concerts, Ceilis, Sessions, CD Launches, Recitals, Irish Dance competitions and Street Entertainment.

Since 1974 Fleadh Nua has developed from a 3 day event to a festival spanning 8 days, with more than 120 separate events, where there is a welcome for everyone. There are many Irish traditional festivals organised throughout the summer months but there are few people who will dispute that Fleadh Nua which started in Dublin in 1970, is the forerunner of them all. The concept of bringing together concerts, céilithe, music, song and dancing workshops, street entertainment, and much more was innovative in its time. However, it's still a winning formula today as evidenced by the thousands of visitors who flock to the festival every May for a week of unsurpassed traditional entertainment.

While the town of Ennis has lost nothing of its warmth and welcome since Fleadh Nua was first held there in 1974, one thing that has definitely changed is the time it takes to get to the capital of County Clare. With the new motorway network connecting directly to the town, Dublin is now only 2½ hours away by car. There are rail links to Ennis from Limerick, Cork, Galway, Dublin, Waterford and Tralee. Shannon International Airport has connections to North America, Britain and Mainland Europe and is only a 20 minute drive from Ennis. There are numerous bus services to and from Ennis, operated by Bus Éireann and Citylink, connecting the town to all the major population centres in the country.

All roads, old and new, will lead to Ennis and Fleadh Nua in May 2016


The programme for Fleadh Nua 2016 will include concerts, céilithe, sessions, street entertainment, Irish language classes, set dancing competitions, Sean-Nós dancing competitions and performances, story telling, Singing Sessions and much more. The wide range of activities, many of them free of charge, will offer something of interest to everyone at this year’s Fleadh Nua.

During the weekend you will listen to everything from songs and ballads to swing and jazz. - You can have a great time singing along in the rowing club, where the rowers have kindly removed their boats for us to set up a bar and a stage. Relax and listen to the many soloists and groups in the yacht club, or dance to swing music on the great dance floor in the tent. {0><}0{>- Entertainment for all age groups from three stages at Sejlmagervej - overlooking the boats in the Marina.

Each group of musicians or soloist is on stage for 30 minutes - and during the weekend the three stages will present more than 85 changes with a new name, so there is no chance of boredom.

Musicians and visitors of all age groups come to Ærø "from the other side", the expression used by Ærø-folks about people from the rest of the world. Our musicians come from all over Scandinavia and from Germany. Many have been on Ærø to play their music each year since the start 23 years ago - and others appear for the first time.


Deutsch: vom 26. bis 29. Mai
Der Verein Ærø Folkelige Musikforening veranstaltet das jährliche Festival für skandinavische und deutsche Akkordeonisten und Volkstänzer zum 23. Mal in der Nähe des Hafens.

Dass Akkordeonmusik mehr zu bieten hat, als nur Seemannslieder, kann man erfahren, wenn man sich an den oben genannten Tagen beim Segelklub von Marstal einfindet und die Ohren spitzt.

HAPPY SKVETT heißt das bekannteste Tanzmusik-Orchester Norwegens, das erstmals nach Ærø kommt. Zehn spielfreudige Musiker sorgen dafür, dass sich jeder auf die große Tanzfläche begibt.

Im Laufe des Wochenendes können Sie hier Musik von Folk über Swing bis hin zum Jazz hören, im Ruderklub lauthals mitsingen oder einfach nur den vielen Solisten und Gruppen im Segelklub zuhören. Unterhaltung für Jung und Alt wird auf der Straße Sejlmagervej auf drei Bühnen dargeboten, die sich im großen Zelt, in den Räumen des Segelklubs und im Ruderklub befinden, wo es auch eine Bar gibt.

Jeder Auftritt dauert 30 Minuten, und da sich 85 Solisten bzw. Gruppen auf der Bühne abwechseln, wird es niemals langweilig.

Die Auftritte finden im Segelklub am Jachthafen, im großen Zelt daneben und in den Räumen des Ruderklubs statt.

Die Musiker kommen von Ærø oder von auswärts, wie die Inselbewohner zu sagen pflegen – in jedem Falle aber aus ganz Skandinavien und aus Deutschland. Viele von ihnen kommen jedes Jahr und manche schon seit der ersten Veranstaltung vor 23 Jahren.

I corsi saranno tenuti da grandi maestri come Luigi Lai (Launeddas) e Totore Chessa (organetto diatonico), depositari del repertorio tradizionale della musica sarda, e da alcuni tra i principali protagonisti del folk italiano, quali Elena Ledda e Simonetta Soro (canto popolare), Pietro Cernuto (flauti di canne o pastorali), Carlo Rizzo (percussioni), Nando Citarella (percussioni e danze popolari con Nathalie Leclerc), Simone e Nicolò Bottasso (musica d’insieme), Alessandro Foresti (canto corale) e Giuseppe Molinu (ballo sardo). Gli stage sono indirizzati sia a musicisti già formati sia a chi desidera avvicinarsi per la prima volta al mondo musicale tradizionale.
Gli orari (da confermare) saranno dalle 10 alle 13 e dalle 17 alle 20.00.

A tutti i corsisti delle discipline musicali, viene offerta la possibilità di frequentare gratuitamente il corso pomeridiano di musica d’insieme. Naturalmente, alle attività didattiche del mattino seguiranno i concerti serali, che si trasformeranno in occasioni davvero uniche, nelle quali insegnanti e allievi potranno interagire in feste di musica e danze.

DE ROSE, DE VIOLE E GERZOMINO - Morovalle/Italia

by Diatonic News
Teatro di Morovalle - Sabato 7 maggio dalle ore 21:15 alle ore 23:00
Canti, balli, storie e leggende della tradizione popolare marchigiana, tra primavera ed estate

Oberdan Cesanelli, voce recitante
Roberto Lucanero, organetto, fisarmonica, voce
Marco Meo, voce, tamburello, danza
Sara Piatanesi, danza

La natura rigenerata dopo il gelo invernale accoglie pian piano i suoi frutti maturi: è il tempo dell’amore e del lavoro, della passione e della fantasia, della spiritualità e del mito, del sole e della luna che si abbracciano.
Un suonatore di organetto, un narratore di storie, un cantore di stornelli ed una ballerina di saltarello nel corso di questo evento, a metà tra il concerto e la lettura teatrale, accompagneranno il pubblico all’interno del mondo magico ed iridato della tradizione popolare marchigiana.
Il ricco catalogo di canti, balli, testi poetici e narrativi che va a costituire lo spettacolo è stato colto dagli stessi interpreti direttamente dalla memoria collettiva dei marchigiani appartenenti alla cultura tradizionale o indirettamente, dalle opere di alcuni importantissimi maestri del passato che si sono dedicati all’attività di studio della stessa tradizione, primi fra tutti Giovanni Ginobili, Luigi Mannocchi ed Antonio Gianandrea.

Organizzazione Compagnia delle Rane
Biglietto €10,00

Avec Benjamin Macke et Birgit Bornauw "Baroque to my Ears" - Belgium

by Diatonic News
Benjamin Macke et Birgit BornauwIt’s Baroque to my Ears Avec Benjamin Macke et Birgit Bornauw

TOURNAI Samedi 7 mai 2016 20h

It's Baroque To My Ears, ce sont deux musiciens inspirés par les musiques traditionnelles, c'est un curieux siamois à quatre mains et deux pieds, c'est une musique baroque décomplexée, imaginée, réinventée avec le respect qu'on lui doit. Entre deux époques, Benjamin Macke, accordéon et basse aux pieds, et Birgit Bornauw, musette baroque et cornemuse flamande, se demandent comment les musiciens baroques se seraient approprié l'accordéon s'il avait existé à leur époque.

« La rencontre sonore de la musette baroque et de l’accordéon, anachronique instrument de ce duo, a été une belle surprise. Les sons se sont trouvés, comme de vieux compagnons longtemps séparés. »

Né vers la fin du XVIème siècle, le style baroque a inspiré des artistes bien au-delà et laissé des traces chez bien des compositeurs jusqu'à nos jours. Qu’ils soient de France, de Suède ou de Flandres, au XVIIème, XIXème ou XXIème siècle, il y a dans chaque mélodie un je-ne-sais-quoi qui sonne baroque à nos oreilles…

Legends of Irish music and song - the Fureys, renowned for their hit songs ‘I will love you’, ‘When you were sweet 16’, ‘The Green fields of France’, ‘The old man’ return to the Cheltenham Town Hall.

The Fureys were formed in 1978 and inevitably changes have occurred over 38 years. One of the band members - Paul died suddenly in June 2002 and Finbar left the band in December 1996, however George and Eddie have continued to delight audiences on their tours and have just released a new CD ‘The times they are a changing’.

Dave Stewart from the Eurythmics has credited Eddie with teaching him his first chords on guitar when they met up in the North East of England while Dave was still a teenager.

Their emotive songs stir many emotions, tears and laughter, sadness and joy.
