Cape Philharmonic Orchstra A.Piazzolla Concert with Bandoneon/Lothar Hensel - South Africa

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
In the Fivties Astor Piazzolla received a Stipendium to study in Paris with Nadia Boulanger. During his time in Paris he was extremely keen to experiment as well as productive.
He composed a number of wonderful titles for bandoneon and chamber orchestra. Titles that evoke "the Paris" of the 50s:

- Chau Paris
- Sens unique
- S.V.P. (s'il vous plait)
- Picasso
- Rio Sena (His)

The orchestral material was considered lost. It is a sensation, bringing these works to a re-issue.

RICCARDO TESI – ANTONIO SPACCAROTELLA al Conservatorio Tchaicovsky (CZ) - Italia

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Riccardo Tesi/Antonio Spaccarotella con il gruppo della Masterclass
Riccardo Tesi con Antonio Spaccarotella«Non pensavo di trovare in un Conservatorio con una così straordinaria voglia di fare sperimentazione nella musica.. Qui a Nocera ho trovato una classe di fisarmonica diatonica con un superlativo livello di preparazione tecnico-musicale che merita un confronto con l’Europa ed è per queste ragioni che spingerò per aprire un confronto favorendo delle collaborazioni con altri Conservatori europei». Con queste parole RICCARDO TESI ha chiuso una straordinaria e intensa masterclass al Conservatorio Tchaikovsky di Nocera Terinese. Parole che giungono da uno dei più autorevoli conoscitori della fisarmonica diatonica, strumento meglio noto come organetto. Riccardo Tesi è una pietra miliare nell’ambito del lavoro che, a livello nazionale e internazionale, viene portato avanti nella valorizzazione di questo strumento. Soddisfazione pertanto è stata espressa dal direttore del Tchaikovsky, il M°Pierfrancesco Pullia: «la masterclass di Tesi è stata pensata nell’ottica di una scelta didattica consapevole attraverso cui si intende innalzare il livello di professionismo nello studio di questo strumento. L’esperienza trentennale di Tesi dimostra che è possibile fare sperimentazione su questo strumento, al fine di restituire ad esso dignità e valore territoriale. Un percorso che abbiamo intrapreso da due anni con il concorso del Diatonic Fest e con altre iniziative, fino all’attuale contributo di Riccardo Tesi che ha accettato un’assidua collaborazione in termini di docenza didattica nell’ambito del corso sperimentale di fisarmonica diatonica e dello stesso laboratorio sperimentale di musica da camera, già dal prossimo Anno Accademico. Si vuole sperimentare percorsi innovativi, facendo incontrare la fisarmonica diatonica con gli strumenti cosiddetti colti, riprendendo la tradizione popolare per rielaborarla in chiave contemporanea.

Circo Diatonico/Rocca Festival - Rocca di Mezzo/Italia

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Rocca di Mezzo - 18 Agosto 2011

Circo Diatonico - Giocolieri e una piccola banda di fiati, percussioni e organetto

Musiche da circo, armonie e acrobazie dello spettacolo viaggiante, l'allegria e la malinconia, la magia del circo, la poetica del viaggio continuo, il brivido del trapezio... trasferite tutto questo in musica, tra etno-jazz, echi balcanici e richiami alla musica popolare italiana e otterrete il sapiente mix del Circo Diatonico! Una sarabanda di fiati e percussioni guidata dall’organetto di Clara Graziano, autrice dei brani del gruppo, e scandita da marce di carovana e marce di bande paesane.
La piacevole confusione del circo sintetizzata in un disco: tutto questo e molto altro ancora in un album da scoprire

Rocca Festival
l Rocca Festival, rassegna di teatro, danza, musica, vuole proporre agli abitanti di Rocca di Mezzo ed ai tanti turisti che la affollano, una riflessione sulla storia antica e recente di questo piccolo borgo montano, storia che ha lasciato i suoi segni nelle piazze, nelle facciate delle chiese, nelle piccole ed inerpicate stradine, nelle case dagli illustri portali, nelle recenti ristrutturazioni. Gli artisti invitati a partecipare a questa rassegna cercano il rapporto con l'ambiente, si pongono critici nei confronti della recente urbanizzazione, utilizzano come scenografie ideali del loro lavoro i luoghi più suggestivi del paese o i boschi, le pinete, i grandi prati del territorio circostante.

Diatonic Accordionists Create Magic in Orlando with the Roland FR18 - USA

by Kevin Friedrich
Top: Danilo Di Paolonicola Middle: Alex Meixner, Lower: Danilo Di PaolonicolaPicture above: Danilo Di Paolonicola (Italy) presenting his Diatonic Accordion Workshop.

Seven-time Diatonic Accordion World Champion Danilo Di Paolonicola brought the house down in Orlando, Florida, where he took diatonic accordion performance to new heights mixing his dynamic artistry, extraordinary technical capability and the innovative features of the new Roland FR18. Appearing at the Accordionists & Teachers Guild, International (ATG) Festival as an International Guest artist, Danilo’s appearance was made possible by Roland-USA, as he began a tour through parts of the United States promoting one of the newest innovations of the Roland accordion family, the FR18 Diatonic Accordion.

Picture left, top: Danilo Di Paolonicola Workshop
Picture left, middle: 2007 Grammy nominee Alex Meixner in Concert, USA
Picture left, lower: Danilo Di Paolonicola, 7 Time World Diatonic Champion in Concert

Danilo began learning the diatonic accordion at the age of six and immediately distinguished himself as a precocious talent, going on to win an incredible seven "World Champion" titles on the Diatonic Accordion, as well as numerous national and international competitions.

Among the many competitions won, Danilo in 2007 with his group "Ethnic Project" won the competition for world's most important jazz accordion "Premio Città di Castelfidardo" and again in the same year with his band, also won the "Premio Stefano Bizzarri" where he had the honor to open the gala concert of Richard Galliano.

Danilo studied jazz and accordion Varietè with Renzo Ruggieri, where he attended advanced courses at the Berklee Shcool in Perugia (Umbria Jazz). He has given concerts in Switzerland, Germany, France, Belgium, Croatia, Holland, Hungary, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina and the USA.

Also appearing on Diatonic accordion courtesy of Roland-USA was America’s own 2007 Grammy nominee Alex Meixner who began his performing career began at age 6 with his two sisters and father in an ethnic folk ensemble. An extremely versatile musician, Alex performs expertly on Diatonic Accordion, Piano Accordion as well as several brass instruments.

Alex has appeared at music festivals throughout the USA, concert performances with the London Symphony Orchestra, Sandy Duncan and his own jazz and ethnic ensembles; as well as over 50 recordings, Meixner has developed a unique musical mix that appeals to a wide cross-section of audiences.

His formative musical studies were on piano and piano accordion, but he quickly branched out on drums, diatonic button accordion, bass and trumpet which ended up as his college major. This instrumental versatility is combined with a musical background that has included intense studies and performance of jazz, classical, pop, polkas and many ethnic folk music genres with some of the leading artists in the world.

His talents in music and comedy were even featured on the Tonight Show on NBC in 2004. Most recently, his “Polka Freak Out” CD with Bubba Hernandez garnered a Grammy nomination in December, 2007.

Currently based in Palm City, Florida, Alex is performing as a solo artist and with numerous touring ensembles. His solo programs- “Fascinating Rhythms of the World” focus on the fusion of Slavic Folk Music and Jazz, but also include the inflections of folk, pop and classical styles from Latin America, Africa and other sections of Europe. This music is the basis for a series of multicultural music education seminars and performances which are currently available through the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts “Artists in Education” program.

During the Festival, Danilo also presented some workshops highlighting the features of the FR18 Diatonic instrument. Roland-USA reports that Diatonic sales have far exceeded all expectations in popularity offering the flexibility of multiple key tunings at the touch of a button, custom key configurations for each artist as well as all the other features inherent in the Roland accordion family. After leaving the ATG Festival in Orlando, Florida, the Diatonic team will head to Houston, San Antonio and other cities in Texas as part of their American Tour.

From Bagpipes to diatonic Accordion – Holland/Belgium

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
In 2000, Wim starts the Boombal, beginning as a part of his accordion lessons, but quickly becoming a national phenomena that attracts thousands of dancers and musicians, thanks to the collaboration with Muziekburo.
In 2001, he meets Maarten Decombel, master-guitarist, with whom he forms duo Göze.
From then onwards things start to develop for the 3 groups: app. 15 cd’s, some tours abroad, some very big stages and some house concerts, but most of all: a lot of concerts and bals in Belgium and Holland.
In 2008 things change: Ambrozijn stops as a group and Wim leaves the Boombal organisation and takes another path: in the summer of that year he presents his first cabaret show Test Eu Gents: a course in social behaviour when speaking the Ghent dialect.

In August you can see and hear him:

Folk Camp Germany - Deutschland

Schloss Zeilitzheim
30. Juli - 06. August 2011

Was ist ein Folk Camp?
Besucher aller Altersstufen - Familien mit Kindern, Gruppen, Singles, Paare, Freunde - aus ganz Europa kommen zusammen. Sie wohnen in Zelten im Schlossgarten. (Wer es gerne etwas bequemer hat, kann ein Zimmer oder eine Ferienwohnung im Schloss oder im Dorf mieten.)
Die Idee stammt aus England von der Folk Camps Society. Das erste deutsche Folk Camp fand 1980 in der Nähe von Bremen statt, drei weitere Camps in den darauffolgenden Jahren in Nordhessen. Seit 1984 sind wir nun in Zeilitzheim. Bereits 1987 war das Folk Camp in Deutschland stark genug und auch durch die internationale Atmosphäre so verändert, daß es unabhängig von der Folk Camps Society geführt werden konnte. So wurde 1989 der Verein Folk Camp Germany e.V. gegründet, der jetzt das Folk Camp organisiert.

Schloss Zeilitzheim
30th July - 6th August 2011

What is a Folk Camp?

Visitors from all age groups - families with children, "singles", couples, friends; from all over Europe - camping in the grounds of the Schloss. Those who prefer to live more comfortably can rent a room or a holiday flat inside the building or in the village. The idea is imported from The Folk Camps Society in England, although naturally with some changes to suit the international atmosphere.
The first German Folk Camp was held near Bremen in 1980. After three years at a site in North Hessen, the first camp at Zeilitzheim was in 1984. Three years later, in 1987, the Folk Camp in Germany was strong enough, and different enough, to go its own way; it became independent of the English Folk Camps Society. In 1989 the Verein (society) Folk Camp Germany e.V. was founded, and this is now responsible for the organisation of the camp.

41° Festival Interceltique de Lorient - France

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Loirent/France - 5 au 30 août 2011

Aujourd'hui, le Festival Interceltique de Lorient c'est :
10 jours de spectacles et divers événements début août

4500 musiciens, chanteurs, danseurs, plasticiens, universitaires, cinéastes, d'Écosse, d'Irlande, du Pays de Galles, de Cornouailles, de l'Île de Man, de Galice, des Asturies, de Bretagne, des USA, du Canada, d'Australie, etc...

Une grande parade (gratuite) attirant plus de 40 000 spectateurs le premier dimanche


Quelques 100 000 spectateurs payants

700 000 visiteurs et spectateurs

1100 personnes hébergées, 20 hôtels prestataires, 7 lycées partenaires, 800 lits loués en internat, 34 000 repas servis au lycée Dupuy de Lôme, 40 traversées en ferry, 40 navettes en bus locaux, etc.

Plus de 700 bénévoles

120 spectacles sur scène, dont 60 % sont gratuits.

La mise à l'honneur d'une nation étrangère tous les ans une diversité d'activités : un week-end breton (championnat des bagadou, grande parade retransmise à la télévision, triomphe des sonneurs, danses de Bretagne)

Des fest noziou gratuits, des ateliers de musique, des conférences, des concerts tous les jours sur des scènes et dans les bars de la ville, des master class gratuites d'instruments celtes, des défilés journaliers, des concours de cornemuse, de gaita, d'accordéon, de harpe celtique, de batterie, de pipe-bands

Du sport (courses de voiles (CeltiCup) de golf (Golfceltrophy), de course à pied (10 miles), de vélo)

Des expositions d'oeuvres d'arts et de costumes, un salon du livre, un marché artisan en cohérence avec la thématique du festival

Le Festival Interceltique de Lorient est né il y a 40 ans de la volonté de ses fondateurs de contribuer au développement de la musique et de la culture bretonne et aussi de s'ouvrir vers les nations d'implantation celte dans les îles britanniques (Écosse, Pays de Galles, Cornouailles, Île de Man, Irlande) mais aussi dans le nord de l'Espagne (Galice et Asturies).
Cela lui a donné une place particulière dans l'ensemble des festivals bretons, mais aussi nationaux dans la mesure où il a su créer un lieu de rendez-vous mettant en scène la Bretagne à côté d'autres nations et ainsi forger un nouveau concept porteur d'échanges : l'interceltisme.
Fort de son succès, l'interceltisme a franchi les premières frontières celtes britanniques et espagnoles pour se tourner vers d'autres lieux où existe également une implantation, plus récente, issue des migrations de ces celtes britanniques et espagnols.
C'est ainsi que l'on a vu arriver des pipe-bands australiens, des joueurs de gaita latinoaméricains et des chanteurs canadiens.

Boombalfestival / Lovendegem/hent - Belgium

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Het Boombalfestival schakelt voor zen 6e editie een versnelling hoger met namen als Isbells, The Bony King of Nowhere, Raymond, Senne Guns, Eva De Roovere en Willem Vermandere! Dit jaar wordt namelijk voor het eerst een onderscheid gemaakt tussen een clubtent (met zitbanken) en danstempels (met houten egale dansvloeren). Voor elk wat wils dus. De banken in de clubtent verdwijnen enkel donderdagavond, zaterdagavond, en zondag ná Willem Vermandere.

Het festival bouwde een goede reputatie op welke ze vooral te danken heeft aan de uitgebalanceerde programmatie, de zorg voor het milieu en de inkleding van het terrein. Zo kijken de mensen van het decoratieteam er naar uit om de erkenning van ‘gezelligste festival van het land’ weer alle eer aan te doen!

De festivalweide wordt verder doorkruist door rondlopende fanfares en ’s avonds wordt alles feeëriek verlicht terwijl mensen zich gezellig rond de vuurkorven nestelen.

Parkings voor auto’s en fietsers liggen vlakbij de ingang en zijn gratis. Zo ook de openingsavond met guests Klaas Delrue (Yevgueni) en Jorunn Bauweraerts (Laïs).

"Cowjunto Music" Austin Cow Parade, Play In Party - USA

by Harley Jones
Bess wrote: I have designed and painted a cow for the Austin Cow Parade and it is called "Cowjunto Music". The photo shows me and "Cowjunto Music" with the piano accordion side - the other side has a button accordion.

On Wednesday July 27, 7 pm to 9 pm at the Long Center in Austin is the Cow Parade Preview Party. All the cows (55 of them) will be unveiled.

I would like to have as many accordion players as possible come to the party, and join around my cow, and at a given signal play "viva Seguin" or "Jesse Polka" or "Hey Baby Que Paso."

It will be fun. The party is free, but you have to pay to park at the Long Center. Editor: Could this only happen in Texas!?

XXVI EDIZIONE DEL MONSANO FOLK FESTIVAL - Italia

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Rassegna internazionale ed itinerante di musica popolare originale e di revival
Edizione “critica” del 150° Anniversario dell’Unità d’Italia

Ritorna anche quest’anno, con la ventiseiesima edizione il Monsano Folk Festival (Rassegna internazionale ed itinerante di Musica Popolare originale e di revival), allargata a quattordici comuni (di cui ben dodici dell’ anconetano.
Il Festival, voluto dal Comune di Monsano (An), con il contributo ed il patrocinio della Provincia di Ancona e della Regione Marche, dell’Assemblea legislativa delle Marche, della Fondazione Pergolesi-Spontini, curato da La Macina e dal Centro Tradizioni Popolari, per la direzione artistica di Gastone Pietrucci, si svolgerà da venerdì 5 a domenica 21 Agosto, in forma itinerante, tra i Comuni di Monsano (con quattro giornate), e Camerata Picena, Corinaldo, Jesi, Montecarotto, Montemarciano, Polverigi, Rosora, Senigallia, Serra de’ Conti, Staffolo e per la prima volta quest’anno, Appignano (MC) ed Isola del Piano (PU) (tutti con una giornata).
Il Monsano Folk Festival, si caratterizza, nel vasto panorama italiano, per la sua particolare formula di rapporto, di scambio, di confronto-“scontro”, tra la musica originale degli autentici portatori della tradizione e quella dei vari gruppi ed interpreti del folk-revival, in un accostamento di pari dignità, di notevole interesse e di grande valore scientifico.
Un Festival singolare, che per la “libertà” e la spontaneità con cui viene organizzato e vissuto, si distingue nettamente dall’attuale, sconfortante panorama di falsificazione e di massificazione operate sulla cultura tradizionale e sulla civiltà popolare. Un Festival, che alla forza della tradizione lega esperienze innovative: un Festival per tutti si, ma anche per spettatori anomali, curiosi, “vivi”, a caccia di sorprese.

Renato Borghetti Quartet/ Civitella Folk Festival – Italia

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Quando: Giovedì 25 Agosto Centro Culturale Ore 21.30

Dove: Civitella Alfedena Folk Festival

Ha cominciato a suonare a 10 anni, quando riceve la sua prima fisarmonica. A 15 anni, era già un‟ attrazione turistica in un associazione “gaucha” e a 16 anni, inizia la sua attività come professionista, partecipando a festival regionali nello stato brasiliano di Rio Grande do Sul.
E stato in questi festival che Borghetti ha iniziato la sua carriera. Suonava come un pazzo, destando grande impressione in coloro che conoscevano la grande difficoltà del suo strumento musicale, la “gaita-ponto”. Inoltre, essendo un uomo affascinante, alto, di bella presenza, e timido, suscitava un certo interesse anche per il suo modo di presentarsi sul palco con il viso sotto quel suo cappello così caratteristico. Il suo primo disco è stato registrato nel 1984. Quando è stato pubblicato nessuno pensava che avrebbe venduto più di mille copie, furono invece più di 100 mila, a conferma del suo successo. Ha vinto il primo disco d‟oro della musica strumentale brasiliana. Vince un‟ altro record, il disco di platino, con 250 mila copie. Era una musica tradizionale, nella quale si manifestava la passione e l‟energia scintillante di questo giovane fisarmonicista.
Alterna i lavori più semplici con momenti di maggiore raffinatezza e accenni verso il jazz e la musica colta e si circonda con i migliori musicisti della regione.
Il suo cd Fandango viene presentato in una grande tournee europea (Germania, Olanda, Svizzera e Italia) e nell‟Aprile 2008 vince il Premio Açorianos come migliore CD e DVD dell‟anno.

Nicht nur der Anfänger kann in der Welt der Steirischen Harmonika schmökern, sondern auch der Profi kann sich von einem ausgebildeten Fachpersonal unterrichten lassen. Der Sinn dieser Woche ist es, einfach Gedanken auszutauschen und neue Bekanntschaften mit Gleichgesinnten zu knüpfen, sowie Erholung in der schönen Weststeiermark zu erleben. Ein durch die Jahre entwickelter Aspekt dieser Volksmusikwoche ist auch der, dass die Teilnehmer aus dem gesamten deutschsprachigen Raum kommen und ihre Kultur mitbringen.
