World Accordion Day - What are you Doing? - International

by Harley Jones
World Accordion Day header
World Accordion Day logoWhat 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.

Lidia Kaminska with the Atlantic Classical Orchestra - USA

by Kevin Friedrich
Lidia Kaminska will perform with the Atlantic Classical Orchestra in a series of concerts in Florida from March 3-6, 2020. Under the direction of Musical Director David Amado (picture right), Lidia will be featured on bandoneon performing Aconcagua Concerto by Astor Piazzolla. The concerts take place in Vero Beach (March 3rd, 7.30 PM), Jupiter (March 4th, 7.30 PM) and Stuart (March 6th, 4.00 PM and 8.00 PM).

The concerts "Masterworks lll" are billed as featuring "the third of four tries Beethoven made at writing an overture to his only opera, Fidelio. The Leonore Overture No. 3 is the most symphonic of the pack, expansive, dramatic, and moving. We’ll follow with Astor Piazzolla’s Concerto Aconcagua, inspired by the eponymous peak and packed with Argentinian flare, drama, and beauty. It is a rare showpiece for bandoneon and orchestra that virtuoso Lidia Kaminska will bring to a full boil. After intermission is Schumann’s third symphony. Filled with his trademark lyricism, tenderness, heart-on-sleeve sentiment, and outsized passion, it is a masterpiece of German Romanticism.”

Accordionist Lidia Kaminska, the winner of Astral Artistic Services’ 2007 National Auditions, has performed extensively in both the U.S. and Europe. Ms. Kaminska’s chamber music, concerto, and solo performances explore the complex and expressive range of the accordion as a classical instrument, and her repertoire includes a broad range of classical, contemporary, and avant-garde music. She conceived her first album, Breaking Boundaries, as part of her mission to change the perception of the accordion from parlor entertainment to a serious classical instrument; Philadelphia Magazine claims “she transforms the accordion into a massive force – more pipe organ than squeezebox – and burns through [classical repertoire] with virtuosic speed and technique.”

Ms. Kaminska began playing the accordion at the age of eight. By eleven she was competing in International competitions in Bulgaria and Germany, and just a year later gave solo performances in Holland, Austria, and Germany, as well as in her native Poland. Upon receiving a Master’s degree from the Chopin Academy of Music in Warsaw, she came to the U.S. to study at the University of Missouri in Kansas City (UMKC) studying with Joan C. Sommers, and at 25 she became the first (and only) person in the U.S. to receive a Doctorate in Accordion Performance.

The recipient of a 2009 Career Advancement Award from the Musical Fund Society of Philadelphia, Ms. Kaminska also received First Prize in the 2002 Accordion Teachers Guild, International (ATG) Competition in Orlando, Florida, the Special Prize in New York City’s International Tango Music Competition, with the Argentine tango ensemble Tango Lorca and Second Prize at the 2007 Coupe Mondiale International Competition for Ensemble Music. She has researched and performed the works of Astor Piazzolla extensively. Also possessing a special interest in new music, Ms. Kaminska has premièred works by Julia Alford Fowler and Paul Rudy and has appeared with the contemporary music ensembles New Ear and Musica Nova. She has also performed with both the Owen/Cox Dance Group and at the world première of BalletX; she went on to collaborate with Mathew Neenan of BalletX, and with dancer/choreographer Jorge Laico, for Pennsylvania Dance Theatre.

Ms. Kaminska recently performed in a concert entitled “From My Latin Soul,” with legendary tenor Plácido Domingo in Washington, D.C.’s Constitution Hall. Symphony in C featured her in a sold-out performance as soloist in Piazzolla’s Aconcagua concerto for bandoneón, and she recently made a return appearance at the Symphony. She has also been a featured soloist with the Delaware Symphony Orchestra, the Brooklyn Friends of Chamber Music, the Kielce Philharmonic Orchestra of Poland, the Strings of Lodz, the Concord Chamber Orchestra, the North Arkansas Symphony Orchestra, and the Kansas City Chamber Orchestra. She has also been presented at Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. Philadelphia Magazine featured her in its 2006 “Best of Philly” issue, and her interview with Marty Moss-Coane was recently broadcast on WHYY and NPR.

Lidia made her bandoneon debut in the Spring of 2007 and has been active performing on it ever since. For more information on the March performances, please visit www.atlanticclassicalorchestra.com.

Stage di organetto con Claudio Prima @Scuola MEDinTERRA - Italia

by Diatonic News
Claudio Prima @Scuola MEDinTERRA
7 Marzo ore 16-20
8 Marzo ore 10-14
Scuola MEDInTERRA
via Pozzino 6, Lequile (LE)


L’organetto è uno strumento che evoca e porta con sé un patrimonio tradizionale straordinario. Negli ultimi anni tale patrimonio è stato riscoperto nei dettagli e riportato alla luce. La diffusione dell’organetto in questa fase di riscoperta ha fatto sì che il repertorio tradizionale incontrasse nuovi ambiti, si ampliasse fino a toccare nuovi orizzonti espressivi. Ed è così che per raggiungere tali orizzonti, le tecniche tradizionali sono state perfezionate e arricchite, rendendo l’organetto uno strumento versatile e completo.
Sotto queste ipotesi, questo stage introduce le tecniche di base dello strumento e la loro applicazione a diversi generi, partendo dai limiti strutturali e cercando di superarli, anzi, di farne un’opportunità esecutiva ed espressiva. Si studieranno alcuni brani composti in forma di studio, che facilitano l’apprendimento delle tecniche di base e che ampliano le conoscenze di coloro che già hanno familiarità con lo strumento. E’ consigliato un modello in tonalità sol/do con un minimo di 8 bassi.

La Scuola MEDInTERRA si occupa di ricerca, studio e divulgazione delle musiche di Tradizione Orale, siano esse di matrice colta (fanno riferimento ad un sistema musicale, es. musica classica indiana) o popolare (più immediate, rituali o di festa ma con un linguaggio specifico a seconda della provenienza).
L’obiettivo è quello di codificare e rendere fruibile in maniera più immediata e con un percorso accademico, le musiche popolari, in continua evoluzione, integrando il sistema musicale eurocolto (basato prevalentemente sulla scrittura) e quello indiano (prevalentemente) basato sulla trasmissione orale del sapere.

Claudio Prima è un organettista esperto di musiche ‘di confine’ e ha ideato e condotto in questi anni una serie di progetti incentrati sul dialogo fra musiche di provenienza diversa (Adria, BandAdriatica, Progetto Se.Me., Giovane Orchestra del Salento, La Répétition) con cui si esibisce in Europa, Africa, SudAmerica, USA. E’ assistente di Goran Bregovic e Giovanni Sollima per le edizioni 2012-2014 della Notte della Taranta. E’ autore di colonne sonore e partecipa a diversi progetti musicali e teatrali in Italia e all’estero.

Il costo dello stage è di 60 Euro.

Steirische Harmonika am Hohner-Konservatorium mit Alexander Maurer - DE

by Diatonic News
Alexander MaurerSonntag, 08.03.2020, 10:00 – 17:00 Uhr
Kursnummer: 2020W01
Noch Frei Plàtze? .... auf Anfrage - also schnell schnell!)

Die Steirische Harmonika gehört als Wahlinstrument zum Fächer kanon der Ausbildung am Hohner-Konservatorium.
In diesem Tagesworkshop wollen wir die Möglichkeiten dieser Instrumentalausbildung vorstellen. Darüber hinaus wollen wir den Neueinsteigern auf der Steirischen einen Einblick in die Instrumentalpraxis geben und erste Spielanleitungen und Einsatzfelder vorstellen, denn sie ist zur Zeit eines der beliebtesten Harmonika-Instrumente. Der rasche Anfangserfolg motiviert und bereitet Lust auf mehr. Geht man allerdings etwas tiefer in die Materie, verlässt den sicheren Hafen der für die Harmonika eingerichteten „Stücke“, braucht man systematische Basics am Instrument.
Gerade das freie „Dazuspielen“ und das Musizieren im Harmonikaduo ist eines der erfüllendsten Kapitel auf diesem Instrument. In einem ersten Schritt werden wir in diesem Workshop grundsätzliche harmonische und melodische Begleitmuster besprechen und ausprobieren. Bei Lust und Laune gehen wir in einem zweiten Schritt noch etwas weiter und verwenden unsere instinktiv bestens abgespeicherte Dur-Tonleiter-Skala, um auf der Basis von Latin-Rhythmen dem musikalischen Gefühl der improvisatorischen Freiheit etwas näher zu kommen.

Inhalte:
• Studieninformation
• Spielpraxis, Basics
• Intuition und Orientierung am Instrument
• Begleiten in der Volksmusik
• Improvisation – Einführung

Dozent: Alexander Maurer, Berndorf (A)

“Tango di Buenos Aires" a Lecce con Simone Marini - Italia

by Diatonic News
Simone MariniVenerdì 6 marzo, al Teatro Apollo di Lecce, il ballerino e coreografo Roberto Herrera proporrà un’immersione nella cultura argentina con il suo spettacolo “Tango di Buenos Aires”, un viaggio nella storia del tango argentino in coppia con Laura Legazcue e accompagnato da Simone Marini al bandoneón e Kaori Sacco al pianoforte. Lo spettacolo è incluso nel cartellone della 50^ Stagione Concertistica della Camerata Musicale Salentina.

Roberto Herrera è oggi considerato un vero e proprio maestro, punto di riferimento sia per il tango tradizionale.

Tango di Buenos Aires è uno sguardo profondo su Buenos Aires e sull’Argentina, uno spettacolo in cui l’irresistibile eleganza, sensualità e seduzione del tango, si fonde armonicamente con la forza del folclore argentino. La colonna sonora di questo viaggio parte dai classici legati alle radici di questo ballo che all’epoca si chiamava semplicemente musica ciudadana. Brani che accompagnano l’ascoltatore attraverso i paesaggi della città di Buenos Aires fino ad arrivare al Tango Nuevo e al suo più grande compositore, Astor Piazzolla.

David Munnelly with 3' on tour in March - UK/NL/DE

by Diatonic News
3' David Munnelly, Joseph McNulty, & Shane McGowan
David Munnelly, Joseph McNulty, & Shane McGowan

The trio was formed by David at the suggestion of a very good friend that loved the idea of the three musicians’ individual styles coming together for a natural sound. David and Joseph come from Mayo and Shane from Sligo which inspired the trio to show reverence for the old recordings of these regions, but also blend some new compositions into the mix. The coming together of these three might have been a suggestion, but we can say it was no accident.

2. Etappe: Eine Reise durch den Mittelmeerraum in toskanischer Tradition.

In den über 20 Jahren ihres Bestehens hat sich Riccardo Tesis populäre Erfolgsformation "Banditaliana" an die Spitze der italienischen und internationalen World Music Szene gespielt. Sie verzaubert durch eine Musik ohne Grenzen, frisch und sonnig, innovativ und gleichzeitig eng mit ihren Wurzeln verbunden - eine breite Synthese aus Formen und Riten der toskanischen Tradition, mediterranen Klängen, Jazzimprovisationen und Canzoni d"autore. Originelle Kompositionen, Virtuosität sowie raffinierte Rhythmen und Arrangements kennzeichnen den Stil der Gruppe, die regelmäßig bei den renommiertesten Folk&Jazz Festivals in Europa, Kanada, Japan und Australien zu Gast ist.
Riccardo Tesi gilt seit Jahren als einer der einfallsreichsten Interpreten auf dem Organetto, dem diatonischen Knopfakkordeon. Als Ethnomusikologe erforschte er den Liscio, den Walzer seiner Heimat Toskana, aber auch süditalienische Tarantella und Tammurriata, die Traditionen Sardiniens, Südfrankreichs, Großbritanniens, des Balkans, Madagaskars, Afrikas oder Indiens ebenso wie den Jazz oder die Filmmusik Nino Rotas. All das vereint er mit seiner Banditaliana zu einer facettenreichen, fließenden und leicht tanzbaren Kunstmusik. Ihr aktuelles Album "Argento" bildet einen neuen Höhepunkt auf der langen Reise durch den Mittelmeerraum, der immer Inspiration für die Musik der Banditaliana war. Musik bei der Tradition und Innovation zusammenfließen, und die eine Hommage an den okzitanischen Liedermacher Jean Marie Carlotti und an den verstorbenen Cantautore Gianmaria Testa ist, der ein enger Freund der Band war.

Besetzung:
Riccardo Tesi: diatonisches Knopfakkordeon
Maurizio Geri: Gitarre, Gesang
Claudio Carboni: Saxophon
Gigi Biolcati: Percussion
