Markku Lepistö - Melodeon Book of Tauno Krossi - Finland

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Markku Lepistö: Tauno Krossin kaksiriviskirja |The Melodeon Book of Tauno Krossi
Publisher: Markku Lepistö
Original release date: Jul 24, 2009
Format: Sheet music book (Hardcover). 136 pages + covers.
Many Finns remember Tauno Krossi (1925–1979) as a humble musician from Laihia, who on stage transformed into a strong performer with a remarkable sense of humor, and a knack at connecting with his audience. This book contains Krossi’s central repertoire (61 tunes) transcribed into the Melodeon (diatonic accordion) in G/C. Additionally, the same compositions have been transcribed into simpler form and tabulatures for the Vienna Style accordion in C/F. As such, this book is a fine introduction into Finnish and more specifically Southern Ostrobothnian accordion music.


Tauno Krossi (1925-1979) muistetaan monien suomalaisten mielissä vaatimattomana laihialaisena pelimannina, josta lavalla kuoriutui riuska ja huumorintajuinen esiintyjä. Nuottikirja sisältää Krossin keskeisimmän haitariohjelmiston (61 kappaletta) kirjoitettuna suomalaiselle G/C-vireiselle haitarille. Lisäksi samat kappaleet on kirjoitettu helpotettuina nuotteina eurooppalaiselle C/F-vireiselle haitarille tabulatuureineen. Tämän kirjan sisältö antaa samalla kattavan kuvan suomalaisesta ja nimenomaan eteläpohjalaisesta haitarimusiikista.

Diatonic Accordions Crafted from Rare New Zealand Kauri Wood - Finland, New Zealand

by Harley Jones
Arthur Maich who donated the Kauri timber

Picture right: Kimmo Mattila unpacking the Kauri timber upon arrival in Ikaalinen (Finland).

A bright idea and a gift of Northern Wairoa Kauri are soon to bring two cultures together from opposite sides of the world.

Dargaville, New Zealand born musician, Kevin Friedrich (who lives in New York), has been donated Kauri timber by Dargaville resident Arthur Maich for the crafting of two unusual diatonic accordions, the world's first crafted from the rare and spectacular native New Zealand Kauri timber.

The idea is the brainchild of Kevin who is having the accordions designed and made at the Ikaalinen College of Crafts and Design in Ikaalinen, Finland. Their accordion department specialises in teaching how to build, repair, service and tune different types of instruments.

World firsts, the Kauri accordions will be identical and made in traditional Finnish style. One will be kept in the Dargaville Museum as part of their huge collection, and the other kept in Finland. Kevin will utilize the Dargaville based instrument when he is performing in New Zealand. The instruments will be decorated with Paua shell engravings and maybe use Paua or Greenstone for the buttons.

“It has been a tricky business trying to send the native New Zealand Kauri timber out of New Zealand, but with the help and experience of local businessman Gordon Morfett we are almost ready to go.” says project manager, Dargaville Museum volunteer Margaret Tier.

The precious Kauri timber has since arrived in Finland and was received by Finland project Manager Kimmo Mattila, the President of the Finnish Accordion Association. Media reports on both sides of the world have been very enthusiastic, profiling this interesting and one of a kind project.

Media will continue to monitor the progress in both the local New Zealand newspapers as well as Hanuri, the magazine of the Finnish Accordion Association as well as Newspapers throughout Finland, with an expected completion date in one to two years.

Gwyneth Paltrow Concertina Player, Singer and Actress - USA

by Harley Jones
Gwyneth Paltrow’s mother, actress Blythe Danner, said Paltrow’s foray into music began in 1995 when she played a concertina for the score of a film she was starring in, ‘Jefferson in Paris’.

Developing her music career, Gwyneth Paltrow has just signed a record deal for a debut album with Atlantic Records. The Oscar winning actress gained attention for her musical talent when she sang ‘Coming Home’ at the recent Academy Awards, which is the title track for her upcoming movie ‘Country Strong’.

The new album is reportedly going to be country pop, so hopefully we will hear Gwyneth Paltrow featuring the concertina too.

German:
Gwyneth Paltrow‘s Mutter, Schauspielerin Blythe Danner, sagte das Gwyneth Paltrow’s erster Musikauftritt 1995 stattfand, als sie eine Konzertina für die Gäste einer Filmvorführung spielte, in dem sie die Hauptrolle in "Jefferson in Paris" inne hatte.

Eine Musikkarriere stand Gwyneth Paltrow bevor, denn sie hatte einen Plattenvertrag für ein Debütalbum bei Atlantic Records. Die Oscar-prämierte Schauspielerin gewann Aufmerksamkeit für ihr musikalisches Talent, als sie "Coming Home " während der jüngsten Oscar-Verleihung, den Titelsong ihres kommenden Film " Country Strong’" sang.

Das neue Album ist Berichten zufolge Country-Pop –und man hofft, Gwyneth Paltrow bald wieder mit der Konzertina zu hören.

John Nixon (1927-2011), Cheshire – UK

by Rob Howard
John Nixon, one of the world’s finest concertina players, died on Saturday, March 5th, aged 84, after a long battle with anemia and heart disease.

Born in Bolton, Lancashire, in 1927, John Nixon played in his father’s 24 strong Bolton Concertina Band in the 1930s, and in 1940 made his first solo radio broadcast from BBC Manchester.

John became a professional musician in dance bands, using English concertina, clarinet and alto saxophone, and also performed regularly in jazz clubs.

John Nixon was widely acknowledged as one of the world's best concertina players, with a great feeling for playing jazz. He spent many years as a session musician, and recorded with the likes of Henry Mancini, Barbara Streisand, Paul McCartney, George Martin, Michel Legrande, and accordionists Frank Marocco, Jack Emblow, Harry Hussey, and Marcel Azzola. His playing can be heard on the soundtracks of such BBC television programmes as ‘Kidnapped’, ‘All Creatures Great and Small’, and ’Allo Allo’, whilst his film credits include ‘Santa Claus the Movie’, ‘Tess’, and ‘The Hound of the Baskervilles’ – to name but a few.

In 1984, John played on Paul McCartney’s ‘We All Stand Together’, a Number One chart hit at Christmas. He recalls that the recording session involved him using treble, baritone and bass concertinas, together with The King’s Singers, the junior choir of St Paul’s Cathedral, an orchestra conducted by George Martin, and the legendary ‘Macca’ himself. John remembers Paul McCartney exhorting The King’s Singers to make sounds like frogs, demonstrating animatedly what he wanted!

On another occasion, John was in the studio, again with George Martin at the helm, playing alongside French accordionist, Marcel Azzola, recording a film score. During lunch break, with the studio otherwise empty, John and Marcel, plus a keyboard player had an impromptu jam session, playing jazz together. John afterwards wished that someone had recorded them – a lost opportunity, alas.

In 2002 John Nixon was elected a Vice President of Stockport Accordion Club, and he was also well known at accordion festivals, performing and leading jazz and swing band workshops. One of his greatest pleasures was to play a couple of impromptu duets with whoever happened to be the guest artiste at Stockport AC concerts, and audiences were thus regularly treated to his magical skills on the concertina.

Akkordeonale 2011 - Deutschland

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Donatello Pisanello
Ferro Gaita„ Donatello Pisanello“ Mitreißende Energie aus dem Süden Italiens
Der aus dem Salento stammende Donatello Pisanello ist Ziehharmonika- Spieler, Multi- Instrumentalist, Komponist für Film und Theater, Skript- Writer und Journalist. Auf seinem Organetto spielt er Pizzica, bei uns besser bekannt als Tarantella. Ursprünglich setzten die armen Bauern des Südens Musik und Tanz rituell zur Heilung von Krankheiten ein, die angeblich vom Tarantelstich (Pizzica) verursacht wurden. Der Tarantelstich gilt als Metapher für emotionale Zustände wie Trauer, Depression oder sexuelle Frustration und der „Gestochene“ tanzt bis zum Zusammenbruch. Jahrhundertelange Besatzung und diverse mediterrane Einflüsse prägten die Pizzica/ Tarantella, eine Musik voll Freude, Passion und Gefühl.
Donatello Pisanello setzt seine Begabung und Talente ein, um die Musik seiner Region zu erhalten, zu erneuern und zu beleben. Wenn er mit seiner Gruppe ZOÉ auf Mega- Events spielt, tanzen Tausende die Pizzica Taranta.


„FerroGaita „ - Rasante Quetschmusik von den Kapverden
Von den Kapverden kommt Estevão „Iduino“ Tavares. Er spielt Ziehharmonika, hier Gaita genannt, die untrennbar mit dem kapverdischen Musikstil Funaná verbunden ist.
Das Akkordeon wurde auf den Kapverden Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts durch die Portugiesen eingeführt, um die Insulaner mit europäischer Musik zu infizieren, die man der afrikanischen als weit überlegen betrachtete. Doch genau das Gegenteil passierte und es entstand eine neue typisch afrikanische Musik, worin das Akkordeon die Hauptrolle spielt. Wegen ihrer gesellschaftskritischen Texte und wegen des erotischen Charakters des Tanzes wurde die Musik von den Kolonialbehörden verboten.
Seit der Unabhängigkeit 1975 hat der Funaná Furore gemacht, nicht nur auf den kapverdischen Inseln, aber auch in Tanzlokalen weltweit! Seine Verbreitung hat u.a. damit zu tun, dass viele Menschen die Inseln aus wirtschaftlichen Gründen verlassen mussten und ihre Musik mitgenommen haben. Estevão „Iduino“ Tavares, mit Reggeamusik aufgewachsen, hat anfangs Trompete gespielt, sich dann aber für die Musik seiner Heimat und das Akkordeon entschieden. Er gilt heute mit seiner Band „FerroGaita“ als König des Funaná.



Servais Haanen - Der Meister feiner Klänge aus den Niederlanden
Der Niederländer Servais Haanen, Ausnahme-Akkordeonist und musikalischer Querdenker, ist Drahtzieher und Organisator der Akkordeonale. Er komponiert und arrangiert u.a. die Ensemble-Stücke des Festivals und führt mit viel Humor und Sachverstand moderierend durchs Programm. Mit dem diatonischen Akkordeon hat er sich als einfühlsamer Musiker und Komponist profiliert, der es versteht, die musikalische Idee auf den Kern der Aussage zuzuspitzen.
Kennzeichnend für seine sensiblen und poetischen Kompositionen sind minimalistisch-respektive Strukturen und magnetisch - mitziehende Melodien ohne jede Kitsch-Attitüde. Er lässt sein Akkordeon in Sphären vordringen, in denen es bisher nichts zu suchen hatte...

„Vladimir Denissenkov“ - Mütterchen Russland explodiert über die Grenzen hinaus
Der aus der Ukraine stammende Vladimir Denissenkov ist einer der Stars der post- sowjetischen Diaspora. Er ist ein echtes Schwergewicht des Bajan, der russischen Variante des chromatischen Knopfakkordeons. Nachdem er sich bereits als Akkordeonist bei der Moskauer Philharmonie sowie als Solo-Künstler einen Namen gemacht hatte, emigrierte er 1995 nach Italien, wo man ihn als viel gefragten und geschätzten Musiker kennt. Er spielt sowohl solistisch (u.a. bei Theater, Cinema, Ballet) als auch mit seiner Gruppe „Guzulka“.
Vladimir Denissenkov lässt jeglichen Akademismus hinter sich und repräsentiert heute eine kunstmusikalische Instanz am Rande der europäischen Weltmusik. Er tut dies auf eigenwillige Weise, weit entfernt von einem volksmusikalischen oder rein klassischen Zugang, wobei das musikalische Material durch seine Virtuosität neue Blüten treibt.

Tony MacKenzie Busking to the End, Mornington Penninsula, - Australia

by Harley Jones
Tony MacKenzieTony Mackenzie busked using his button box, voice and his giant heart, right up until the end. On March 16, battling liver cancer, the veteran charity worker grabbed his trusty accordion and headed down to the Mornington market, Victoria

The 77-year-old played, sang and chatted with market patrons for about two hours before heading home, and passing away on 21 March. For a man who was very much a part of the Mornington market scene, it was a fitting end to a life well lived.

Mr Mackenzie raised more than $100,000 for charities, particularly the Osteogenesis Imperfecta Foundation. He was keen to support children with brittle bones. He had a real affinity for children who were disadvantaged.

In retirement, Tony Mackenzie played his accordion at the Red Hill, Mornington, Balnarring, Rosebud and Tootgarook markets to raise money for charities.

In an interview with a local newspaper in 2007, Tony Mackenzie said his childhood experience of being raised in an orphanage motivated him to reach out to children in need.

“I just want to help the little guys out. The people at the market are very kind to me and very generous to the kids,” he said.

A service was held at Dromana’s Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, where Mr MacKenzie regularly attended services on 25 March.

Helena Ruegg Bandoneon Performances - Israel, Palestine

by Harley Jones
Helena RueggHelena Ruegg (Switzerland) is reported visting Israel and Palestine in November 2010, meeting with Jewish and Arab musicians.

The Workers Advice Center, WAC-MAAN, invited her to perform, and she responded with two unique shows, featuring tangos as well as revolutionary songs (some in Yiddish), at WAC's new center in Haifa and at Beit ha-Am in Tel Aviv.

Helena has played in dozens of ensembles on stages throughout the world. In 1999, with Arne Birkenstock, she published Tango: Geschichte und Geschichten, a book on the tango's history which has had a great success.

Because it is hard to make a living from playing, she combined her musical career with journalism.
