Sounding Out the Accordion

Editor's Note

by Diatonic News
December is here, which means choosing Christmas presents for oneself or others. For accordion enthusiasts the task is made much simpler by looking through what Accordions Worldwide advertisers have to offer: a large range of instruments, accessories, books, CDs, DVDs, sheet music, etc.

On Accordions Worldwide and MusicForAccordion there really is something for everybody, and ordering is simple and can save a lot of time otherwise spent visiting shops.

The old Yellow Pages telephone advertisement slogan “let your fingers do the walking” springs to mind!


Scientists Find Musicians 'have sharper minds' - UK

by Harley Jones
group of players
The following article we have published already some time ago. As X-Mas is coming up - why not reflect and get a nice musical instrument as a present?

Here the article to remember and maybe inspire?

Yahoo News, UK reports, that playing a musical instrument could help protect against mental decline through age or illness, according to a new study. Musicians have sharper minds and are able to pick up and correct mistakes quicker than non-musicians, researchers at St Andrews University found.

They measured the behavioural and brain responses of amateur musicians compared with non-musicians when performing simple mental tasks. The results showed that playing a musical instrument, even at moderate levels, improves a person's ability to detect errors and adjust responses more effectively.

Musicians also responded faster than those with little or no musical training, with no loss in accuracy, the study found. The research was led by psychologist Ines Jentzsch, a reader in the university's School of Psychology and Neuroscience.

"Our study shows that even moderate levels of musical activity can benefit brain functioning," she said. "Our findings could have important implications as the processes involved are amongst the first to be affected by ageing, as well as a number of mental illnesses such as depression.

"The research suggests that musical activity could be used as an effective intervention to slow, stop or even reverse age or illness-related decline in mental functioning." The study, published in the journal Neuropsychologia, builds on previous work showing the benefits of musical activity on mental and physical well-being.

Pianist Dr Jentzsch said: "Musical activity cannot only immensely enrich our lives but the associated benefits for our physical and mental functioning could be even more far-reaching than proposed in our previous research."

Harley Jones, CIA Public Relations, commented:
"This is an important scientific study that accordion assocations around the world should promote to their members and the public. I believe, that the accordion is probably the best instrument of all with the greatest benefits because:
- the physical and mental activity of using the bellows,
- the different treble and bass keyboards
- accordionists are playing a melody plus accompaniment
- accordions are an excellent group training instrument too
which means an enormous mental stimuli while enjoying yourself playing the accordion.

This is an important study for parents of young children to know about, as music education today has many competitors and we need to make our voice heard to ensure an accordion education is fully appreciated and considered by all parents."

Die Osttiroler Gemeinde Außervillgraten hat sich
um die Austragung beworben und sehr gerne den Zuschlag erhalten. Alle Formalitäten sind erledigt – und so steht diesem internationalen Harmonika-Ereignis nichts mehr im Wege.

Aleksandar Nikolic Composes, Final Show, Tango Festival Palermo - Italy

by Diatonic News
The VI Palermo Tango Festival runs from 23 to 27 February in Southern Italy.

The new theatrical drama "7 Peccati... mas uno!" will be the second collaboration of bandoneonist and composer Aleksandar Nikolic and the famous Quintet Beltango with Teatro Golden and dancing company Alterazioni Tango from Palermo led by well known Argentinean choreographer Angel Coria.

After the great success of "Saint George and the Dragon" performed last festival, a strong theme for 2017 of "7 Peccati... mas uno!" (7 Capital Sins) will give the audience a unique mixture of powerful and strong music by Quintet Beltango, inspired by a tradition of tango which will be this time in strong interaction with classical, modern, jazz and Balkanic roots.

There will be some 60 minutes of new music composed by Aleksandar and Ivana Nikolic (picture left - concert in Finland), performed by Beltango and Argentinean double bass player Gerardo Scaglione.

The audience will have the possibility to see and listen to a unique vision of pride, sloth, wrath, gluttony, envy, greed and lust.

The world premiere of this musical-dancing spectacle will be 26th February, the final grand show and the prime concert of the VI Palermo Tango Festival.

This new music will be available later next year on a new CD of Quinteto Beltango

Beltango will continue the 2017 season with new concerts and tours around Europe (Italy, Germany, Switzerland, France, Holland, Austria, Slovenia, Sweden, Croatia, Spain...)

‘Another Vintage Year for Irish trad’, London – UK

by Rob Howard
The following report on this year’s ‘Return to Camden’ performances, from ‘Irish World’, was written by Anne Geaghan.

This year’s ‘Return to Camden Town’s Friday concert at King’s Place was presented by ‘Pride of London’ banjo player Mick O’Connor, accompanied by former Thatch ceilidh band accordion player John Bowe. Both players have a gentle, soothing approach and were well supported on stage by the steady keyboard skills of Pete Quinn. Mick, John and Pete glided through popular tunes.

After a short interval Mórga entered the stage with a rousing programme presented by Danny Diamond, the fiddle player in the Mórga quartet. Danny’s fellow band members David Munnelly on accordion, Dominic Keogh on bodhrán (he is also a fine flautist), and Jonas Fromseier, from Denmark, on bouzouki presented a programme of Irish American music, Irish music composed in the ‘70s and session-style arrangements of well-known tunes.

The following night, Saturday, the performances moved to the London Irish Centre in Camden and we heard the London Irish Pensioners’ Choir perform lovely ballads with audience participation. Crossharbour followed with new compositions from Orlaith McAuliffe and Tad Sergeant. Rosie sang her heart out ending with a fine interpretation of ‘Banks of the Claudy’. Sam Proctor on fiddle and Philippe Barnes on tin whistle played new tunes with Orlaith. Waterford based Caladh Nua concluded the Saturday concert with a showcase of music from Ireland’s south-east. Singer Lisa Butler sang authoritatively, played the fiddle and introduced her four colleagues, Derek Morissey (accordion), Paddy Tutty (fiddle), Brian Mooney (banjo) and Caoimhin O Fearghaill (guitar).

Up the road at Cecil Sharp House, the set dancers were out in force to welcome back the Tulla Ceili Band. The band made many new friends in 2012 and delivered the best tunes – polkas, slides for the Connemara, Caledonian, and Clare Sets. This time, as then, they were greeted by a sea of happy faces and deft footwork. The Ceilidhs were poignant as tributes were paid to the wonderful Marian Savage who passed away in 2015. Mairead Casey from Longford was back again for workshops and a fine display of Sean-nós steps.

On Sunday afternoon an orderly queue waited eagerly before heading upstairs to the presidential suite to hear Bobby Gardiner on accordion and his daughter Lynda on concertina. Mary McNamara, who earlier had led a concertina workshop and did a guest slot with the Tulla band, was joined by daughter Sorcha Costello on fiddle. Tom O’Connell from West Limerick on accordion and Peter McAlinden, from London, added more great music.

Afterwards, preparation began in McNamara Hall for Sunday night’s concert – a tribute to the late Jimmy Philbin from Cornamona, Co Galway who died earlier this year. The Good Mixer band and le Cheile were gems demonstrating precision teamwork and seamless harmonies.

01 January 2017 6.30 pm to 04 January 2017 1.00 pm

Italienische Folkmusik im Ensemblefür diatonisches Akkordeon und alle anderen Instrumente, ab mittlerem Spielniveau

Italien ist ein Schmelztiegel vielfältiger Kulturen, aus denen sich im Laufe der Jahrhunderte die italienische Bevölkerung gebildet hat, mit ihren unterschiedlichen Liedern und Tänzen. Im Nord-Westen ist die Tanzmusik mit der französischen Tradition verwandt. Im Nord-Osten entdeckt man den Einfluss österreichischer Musik. Im Süden gab es lange Zeit einen intensiven Kontakt mit der arabischen Kultur. Hier finden wir obsessive Tänze wie die "Tarantella" und die "Tammurriata".

Im Herzen Italiens, in der Emilia Romagna mit ihrer Hauptstadt Bologna, ist unser Referent, einer der führenden diatonischen Akkordeonisten Italiens, zu Hause. Die Emilia Romagna ist die Brücke zwischen Nord und Süd und der Treffpunkt ein Kulturen mit bemerkenswerter kulturellen Breite. Aus diesem reichhaltigen Repertoire wählen wir die Schwerpunkte des Workshops. Als Ausblick können wir auch Beispiele des italienischen Repertoires aus anderen Regionen kennenlernen und zu einer Ensemblemusik zusammenfügen. Musikalische Begegnungen mit dem schwedischen Ensemble in Anlehnung an das Projekt ChiumaFina (www.ciumafina.com) sind nicht ausgeschlossen.

Voraussetzung: Wir spielen vor allem in den Tonarten C-Dur, G-Dur, a-moll und ggf. auch e-moll. Alle Instrumente, die diese Tonarten spielen können und mindestens so beherrscht werden, dass Melodien schnell erlernt werden können, sind willkommen. Diatonische Akkordeons müssen in G/C mit mindestens 21 Tasten ohne Gleichtöner auf der Melodieseite und 8 Tasten im Bass sein. Die Unterrichtssprache ist Englisch (und ggf. Italienisch).

Dozent: Stefano Ciuma Delvecchio

Italien, spielt seit 1988 diatonisches Akkordeon und ließ sich in Italien und Frankreich in vielen Stilrichtungen ausbilden. Seit 1991 spielt er mit seiner Band Bevano Est auf allen wichtigen Festivals Italien und international. Er gehört zu den führenden Solisten und Lehrern auf dem diatonischen Akkordeon in Italien. Mit Josefina Paulson spielt er in dem Projekt ChiumaFina

The Sound of Paris Musette Music on the Accordion with Raquel Gigot - DE/FR/BE

by Diatonic News
Raquel GigotFürstenecker Akkordeonale-Workshops
02. Dezember 2016 18.30 Uhr bis 04. Dezember 2016 13:00 Uhr

Musette music is immensely appealing, evoking as it does the romantic cafes, sidewalks and dance halls of Paris. It is instantly recognizable, with its minor keys that speak of an underlying sadness, coupled with jaunty melodies and playing styles that reveal the resilience of the human spirit.
Watch any old movie that‘s set in Paris and the soundtrack is sure to be musette, the charming, accordion-fueled music so identified with the city‘s romantic aura.
When the Auvergnats moved from the center of France to Paris in search of work in the early 1800s, they brought their folk music to town, many of them opening cafés that catered to factory workers and their families. Another wave of immigrants came into Paris from Italy. The uprooted Italians settled into the same working-class neighborhoods as the Auvergnats, and brought their own musical instrument with them: the accordion.
Gypsy people who lived on the outskirts of society, but worked in the heart of the city came with banjo (Django Reinhardt...) to play in those dance halls of Paris.
From the meeting of those three communities (Auvergne, Italy and Gypsy), a new style of music was born!
In this workshop we will go into a Ball from the years 30 in Paris! Bourrées, Mazurkas, polkas, waltzes, javas, swing...
We will work on everything that makes the style: accents, phrases, swing, variations, rhythmic, accompaniment, spirit of the musette... and, pleasure to play together!

Welcome: Chromatic accordion players. Diatonic players are welcome, if they already can play a bit.
Kurssprache: Englisch

Raquel Gigot stammt aus Belgien, einem Land mit einer großen Akkordeon-Tradition. So konnte es nicht anders kommen, als dass sie mit den verschiedensten Stilen der Akkordeonmusik in Berührung kam. Sie spielt chromatisches sowie diatonisches Akkordeon. Die Musette begleitet Raquel seit ihrer Kindheit, sie interpretiert ihn wie zu Zeiten der Swing-Jazz-Epoche in Paris und Brüssel. Das Akkordeon liebt sie, weil es quer durch die sozialen Schichten in Kneipen und auf Dorffesten genau so zu Hause ist, wie in Konzertsälen.

“Una vita a bottoni” di Riccardo Tesi - Italia

by Diatonic News
riccardo Tesi - una vita a bottoni
“Una vita a bottoni” racconta la carriera artistica di Riccardo Tesi, uno dei musicisti più autorevoli della scena world music europea e tra i pionieri della riscoperta dell’organetto diatonico in Italia.

Leader e fondatore di Banditaliana, Tesi ha usato il suo strumento per dialogare con molti artisti ed ha intrecciato legami con la canzone d’autore, le improvvisazioni jazz, ma anche rock e classica, iniziando a lavorare con Caterina Bueno, fino al suo primo album del 1983 “Il ballo della lepre”. Poi tante collaborazioni da Patrick Vaillant a Gabriele Mirabassi, da Gianlugi Trovesi a Piero Pelù, da Fabrizio De André a Ivano Fossati e Gianmaria Testa.

Uscito in settembre, il libro edito da Squilibri, sarà presentato il 3 dicembre alle 17.30 presso il Palazzo dei Vescovi a Pistoia, alla presenza dell'autore Neri Pollastri, critico musicale e di Riccardo Tesi. Simone Gai farà da moderatore all'incontro, al quale parteciperanno anche Claudio Carboni e Maurizio Geri, che suoneranno qualcosa del loro repertorio assieme allo stesso Tesi.
