The repertoire included Astor Piazzolla, Richard Galliano, Gotan Project, and Finnish Tangos all specifically arranged for this orchestra with this concert being the first Finnish tango orchestra event ever performed at the Berlin Philharmonic.

The Guardia Nueva orchestra performed in their unique way, complementing the habanera rhythm with soft accordion sounds and tempting Scandinavian vocalists showcasing the strong Finnish tango tradition, developed during more than 80 years.

Morre bandoneonista, compositor e maestro argentino Leopoldo Federico - Argentina

by Diatonic News
Leopoldo Federico
Leopoldo FedericoLeopoldo Federico dividiu o palco com grandes nomes do tango, como Astor Piazzolla

Leopoldo Federico, compositor, bandoneonista e maestro argentino que dividiu o palco com grandes nomes do tango, como Mariano Mores e Astor Piazzolla, morreu neste domingo (28) aos 87 anos, informou uma entidade de artistas profissionais.

Federico morreu em um sanatório de Buenos Aires onde estava hospitalizado, segundo a Associação Argentina de Intérpretes (AADI), instituição da qual era presidente e que não forneceu detalhes da morte.

"Era parte da história do bandoneon. Era admirado desde jovens de 17 anos que gostariam de tocar como ele, até os maiores", disse ao canal TN o violonista Horacio Malvicino.

Federico recebeu o prêmio Carlos Gardel em sua trajetória na música popular, além de ganhar duas vezes o Grammy Latino.

Band mobilisiert mit Schlagern das Gedächtnis - Österreich

by Diatonic News
Die "Salzburger Nachrichten" berichten am Freitag, 2. Januar 2015:
An diesem Nachmittag des hat sich das Altersheim in ein Konzerthaus verwandelt. Im Erdgeschoss formen Stuhlreihen kleine Halbkreise. Im Zentrum stehen vier Männer zwischen Gitarren, Mikrofon, Cajon und einem uralten schwarzen Klavier mit Kerzenhaltern. Die hannoversche Band "Klang und Leben" ist ins Kursana Domizil nach Buchholz (Landkreis Harburg) gekommen. Mit vertrauten Melodien wollen die Musiker Demenzkranken bei Gesangstunden alte Erinnerungen wecken und so deren Lebensgefühl verbessern.

Ihre Formel ist einfach: Musik an, die Laune steigt. "Kann denn Liebe Sünde sein?", schmachtet Oliver Perau ins Mikrofon, Dutzende hören zu. Helga wippt. Irmgard klatscht, und die Perlenkette schunkelt über dem Rollkragenpullover. Der Mann mit Gitarre, Graziano Zampolin, hält ein Modellauto in die Luft - einen roten VW-Käfer. "Jetzt fahren wir los nach Italien, mit einem Gefährt, das sie alle kennen." Erst eine Wellenbewegung mit dem Auto vor den Augen der Senioren, dann eine kleine Vespa zur Hand, "über die Alpen, nach Genua, über Rom, zur Insel mit dem Eis, zu den "Capri-Fischern!"

"So schön!"
Das Signal für die Band! Rainer Schumann klopft den Rhythmus. Die Akkorde wackeln über die Tasten von Pianist Andreas Meyer. Die Hüften von Sänger Perau tun's ihnen gleich: links, rechts, links, rechts. Helga tupft sich am linken Auge, faltet ihr Taschentuch im Schoß zu einem kleinen Quadrat, "so schön!". Ganz hinten, über einen Rollator gebeugt, murmelt ein Greis die Zeilen leise mit, während seine Nachbarin, leicht zum Takt versetzt, eine Faust ballt und öffnet. Ein Lied später tänzelt Zampolin mit der 85-jährigen Hannelore in vorsichtigen Schritten zu "Quando, quando, quando" im Kreis.

"Mit dem passenden Lied erinnern sie sich an ein Leben, in dem es ihnen gut ging. Die Stücke geben älteren Menschen etwas Geborgenes, Vertrautes wieder. Es tut einfach nur gut", sagt Rainer Schumann. Und auch bei Hannelore blitzen Bilder ihrer Jugend auf: "Als junges Mädchen hat das angefangen, da fing überall die Musik an, und wir, wir gingen immer los", sagt sie mit leicht aufgeregter Stimme.


Älteren Leute singen jede Strophe mit
"Musik kann biografische Erinnerung wecken, ältere Menschen können damit besondere Erlebnisse in Verbindung bringen", erklärt der Sprecher der Deutschen Alzheimer Gesellschaft, Hans-Jürgen Freter. Erstaunlich sei etwa, dass ältere Leute nicht wüssten, was sie zum Frühstück gegessen haben, sie sich aber strophenweise an Lieder erinnern könnten.

"Es geht um die Lebensqualität der Menschen, und darum, sie nicht allein zu lassen. Therapien mit Musik, Bewegung und Tanzen sind auf jeden Fall ein Weg, um Erkrankte geistig und körperlich anzuregen und so zu ihren Gefühlen vordringen zu können", sagt Freter. Deutschlandweit sind laut der Deutschen Alzheimer Gesellschaft rund 1,5 Millionen Menschen an Demenz erkrankt.

Der hannoversche Musikprofessor Eckart Altenmüller hat untersucht, wie sich die Gesangsstunden von "Klang und Leben" auf das Wohlbefinden der Senioren auswirken. "Bei bislang rund 50 Versuchspersonen haben wir große Effekte in der Stimmung und Motorik festgestellt." Vom Pflegepersonal ließ er in Fragebögen das Verhalten der Bewohner festhalten.

"Demenz wird immer als etwas Negatives dargestellt", sagt Zampolin, der Gitarrist und ausgebildete Demenzcoach, zu seinem Publikum, "wir haben da eine ganz andere Erfahrung gemacht. Musik statt Pille!", betont er und reckt die Faust zur Decke. Jubel der Pflegerinnen vorne. Die säuselnden Klänge von "Bel' Ami" hinten. Und die Hüften, sie gehen wieder links, rechts, links, rechts.

The art of playing in a duo

At its best, playing in a duo is like a great conversation: there’s give and take, honesty and spontaneity. It’s an environment where meaningful ideas can be expressed, and the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. What allows for this is the right orientation to your playing partner, a way of listening and responding to them, as you offer your own musical contributions. In this workshop we will look at how to go about sharing the duties of melodic, harmonic, and purely rhythmic playing, dynamics, choosing a repertoire, how to arrange such a repertoire for two players and how to present it in performance. Between them accordionist Jeremiah McLane and cellist Ariel Friedman and have logged countless hours playing in duos, Ari with her sister, violinist Mia Friedman, and Jeremiah with guitarist David Surette, as well as violinist Ruthie Dornfeld.

15. Fürstenecker Bordunale/Diatonisches Akkordeon mit Stefano Delvecchio - Deutschland

by Diatonic News
BordunMusikTage vom 1. bis 4. Januar 2015
Diatonisches Akkordeon in der italienischen Folkmusik
ab mittlerem Spielniveau
Stefano "Ciuma" Delvecchio

Viele Akkordeonisten hierzulande spielen auf italienischen Instrumenten; die vielfältige Folkmusik Italiens ist dagegen noch relativ wenig verbreitet. Dabei gibt es für das diatonische Akkordeon ein abwechslungsreiches Repertoire mit ganz unterschiedlichen technischen Spielweisen zu entdecken.

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 eine Tanzmusik beliebt, die mit der französischen Tradition verwandt ist. Im Nord-Osten entdeckt man den Einfluss österreichischer Musik. Im Süden, wo lange Zeit ein intensiver Kontakt mit der arabischen Kultur stattgefunden hat, finden wir obsessive Tänze wie die "Tarantella" und die "Tammurriata".

Aus dem Herzen Italiens, aus der Emilia Romagna mit ihrer Hauptstadt Bologna, stammt unser Referent, einer der führenden diatonischen Akkordeonisten Italiens. Die Emilia Romagna kann man als Brücke zwischen Nord und Süd und als Treffpunkt der Kulturen mit einer bemerkenswerten kulturellen Breite verstehen. Dieses reichhaltige Repertoire bildet den Schwerpunkt des Workshops. So spielen (und tanzen!) wir u.a. die "Giga", ganz klar aus Nordeuropa kommend, genau so wie den "Saltarello", der uns an die süditalienischen Tänze erinnert.

Als Ausblick werden wir auch Beispiele des italienische Repertoires aus anderen Regionen mit seinen verschiedenen Spielweisen kennenlernen, sowie manche Spieltechniken, die einzigartig in der Welt sind, wie z.B. die Blasebalg-Technik in der Tanzmusik Sardiniens.

Voraussetzung: G/C Akkordeon mit mindestens 21 Tasten ohne Gleichtöner auf der Melodieseite und 8 Tasten im Bass, ab mittlerem Spielniveau mit sicherer Koordination von rechter und linker Hand. Unterstützend stehen Noten mit Tabulaturen zur Verfügung. Die Unterrichtssprache ist Englisch (und ggf. Italienisch).

"Ciuma" - Stefano Delvecchio, spielt seit 1988 diatonisches Akkordeon. Nach Studien in Italien und Frankreich hat er 1991 seine Gruppe Bevano Est (www.bevanoest.com) gegründet, mit der er seither bei allen wichtigen Festivals in ganz Italien und auch international auftritt. Er spielt außerdem in verschiedenen anderen Gruppen vor allem Musik aus der italienischen Folk-Tradition und komponiert für Theater und Film.

Address: Candleriggs,Glasgow,G1 1NQ
Tel: 0141 353 8000

Over the last two decades, Danú have secured their reputation as one of Ireland’s finest traditional bands, gradually maturing from youthful firebrands to today’s richly seasoned ensemble, while losing none of their passion for making music together.

Originating in Co. Waterford, and named for the ancient Celtic goddess of fertility and wisdom, their powerhouse seven-piece line-up combines fiddle, uilleann pipes, accordion, flutes, whistles, bouzouki, guitar and bodhran with Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh’s bewitching vocals.

Building a large and devoted following either side of the Atlantic, Danú have released eight albums to date, with a ninth due out for their 20th anniversary year, material from which is sure to feature as they kick off the festivities here in Glasgow - a party with some very special guests in attendance, including Irish musical godfather Donal Lunny, Scottish Gaelic singing star Julie Fowlis, piano accordion maestro Phil Cunningham and former band members from earlier in their career.

CD Karja-La by SVÄNG - Finland

by Diatonic News
Karja La
Die vier überaus charmanten Herrn von Sväng haben in den letzten Jahren neue Standards für das Ensemblespiel auf der Mundharmonika gesetzt – und das sowohl im Hinblick auf Repertoire als auch Spieltechnik. Mit einem ebenso anspruchsvollen, wie unterhaltsamen Programm aus Eigenkompositionen überzeugen die Mundharmonika-Visionäre Publikum und Fachwelt rund um den Globus von den unbegrenzten Möglichkeiten dieses kleinen, oftmals unterschätzten, Instruments.

2014 ist ihre neue CD „Karja-La“ erschienen – die nicht nur auf finnische Volksmusiktraditionen und Balkanrhythmen Bezug nimmt, sondern ebenso auf Vertreter der finnischen Romantik wie Sibelius und Merikanto. Überhaupt fassen Sväng ihr Repertoire undogmatisch weit und laden zu einer außergewöhnlichen Klangreise: eine freigeistig, lustvoll und mit rhythmischer Vitalität zelebrierte Musikmelange, die vom britischen Songlines-Magazin mit dem Attribut des „Mundharmonika-Pendants zum Kronos-Quartet“ geadelt wurde.

Zeitgenössische Mundharmonikamusik, die derzeit wohl kein zweites Mal in dieser Kompaktheit und Virtuosität zu finden ist.

La sorte ha voluto altrimenti, e quello che doveva essere per Giandomenico il compimento di un sogno - il suo primo CD - rappresenta ora la sua eredità più bella per la famiglia, per gli amici che hanno suonato questi brani, per tutti coloro che lo conoscevano e gli volevano bene per la sua umanità e la sua musicalità.
Il titolo "Capre, Ricci e Capricci" rende in tre parole la passione e il carattere del nostro artista: attaccato al suo paese, Villa Castelli, come le capre di Vituccio de Carcagn'; un po' pirata con quella sua chioma riccioluta, orgogliosamente sfoggiata; capace di fare l'impossibile per soddisfare un capriccio suo, dei suoi familiari o degli amici...

E per realizzare questo disco, Giandomenico ha scelto brani che hanno segnato la sua storia di musicista e molte amicizie, nate con la scusa della musica.
Vito Nigro, Federico Di Viesto, Mario Salvi, Mimmo Epifani, Giuseppe Grassi, José Barros, Maika e Sara Gomez, Redi Hasa, Antongiulio Galeandro, Andrea Presa... tutti presenti in uno o più brani di questo CD, in risposta alla chiamata di Giandomenico: 'ma sci' ffa' lu disc'?
E Valerio Daniele, che questo CD l'ha registrato e mixato, e che non sarà mai ringraziato abbastanza per la comprensione e la disponibilità dimostrata.

Giandomenico Caramia e la sua musica

Si è avvicinato sin da piccolo allo studio della musica, iniziando lo studio della fisarmonica nel 1980 con il M° Sandro Tannoia per poi dedicarsi, dal 1984, allo studio dei tamburi a cornice sotto la guida di Alfio Antico. Tra il 2000 e il 2003 ha studiato l’organetto (fisarmonica diatonica) con Mario Salvi presso il Centro Accademico Musicale di Villa Castelli. Dal 2003 al 2005 ha frequentato il corso di tamburi a cornice con Arnaldo Vacca e il corso di organetto tenuto dallo stesso M. Salvi presso il Conservatorio “Tito Schipa” di Lecce, all’interno del Corso triennale di Musica Popolare ideato da Daniele Durante. Dal 2004 ha sviluppato un'intensa attività concertistica, sia come percussionista che come organettista, collaborando stabilmente con Mimmo Epifani nei gruppi "Epifani Barbers" e "La Gialletta". Ha partecipato con l’Orchestra della Notte della Taranta al concertone di Melpignano (LE) nel 2004 e nel 2005 e alle successive tournées italiane dell’orchestra, tornando poi sul palco del concertone come ospite dell'orchestra nel 2007, 2008 e 2009.
Ha condotto tra il 2002 e il 2005, insieme a Mario Salvi, una ricerca sui canti e la musica tradizionale con specifico riferimento all’organetto di Villa Castelli, unico paese in Puglia dove questo strumento è ancora fortemente radicato, per pubblicare poi nel 2008 con Kurumuny il libro-cd "La pizzica nascosta". E’ stato inoltre l’animatore del gruppo spontaneo “Cantori di Villa Castelli” formato da anziani cantori e da suonatori tradizionali, nato per far conoscere al pubblico la ricchezza e l’originalità delle musiche e dei canti della Murgia sud-orientale.

CD Belem by Didier Laloy & Kathy Adam - Belgium

by Diatonic News
Belem
English - Didier Laloy and Kathy Adam form an atypical duo featuring diatonic accordion and cello. They are both brilliant musicians
in their own right. For over 15 years they have travelled througout Europe with the group ‘Panta Rhei’, and shared the stage on many
other occasions including Didiers own projects Didier Laloy Invites, [Pô-Z]s, Noir’s and Nonsens. Although we had to wait for 20 years
before a direct collaboration emerged, it was well worth the wait.
For decades they’ve been thinking about experimenting with chamber music, without neglecting the expressive side. Today they
provide an anthology of compositions, at the crossroads of their experiences. A strong but simple music, subtle and surprising, where
silence, dynamics and the most elegant and crazy rhythms intersect. Musical images collide, and lead you on a musical journey and
unique experience.
Belem, a gentle and daring duo is the result of a long-awaited meeting between two wonderful artists.

Français - Didier Laloy et Kathy Adam, deux musiciens atypiques, hors pair qui se connaissent et partagent les scènes depuis de
nombreuses années. Pendant près de 15 ans, ils ont sillonné les routes d’Europe avec la formation ‘Panta Rhei’ mais également au sein
d’autres projets de Didier (Didier Laloy Invite...s, [Pô-Z]s, Noir’s, Nonsens). Il aura fallu attendre une vingtaine d’années pour que leur
complicité soit enfi n mise en lumière.
Depuis longtemps le désir de fl irter avec la musique de chambre les animait, et sans oublier la part expressive qui les a construits, ils
nous offrent aujourd’hui un fl orilège de compositions au carrefour de leurs expériences. Une musique simple et forte, subtile et surprenante,
où les souffl es et les silences croisent avec élégance les rythmes les plus fous. Les images se succèdent, s’entrechoquent,
se caressent pour nous conduire vers un univers singulier qui se construit tout au long de ce voyage musical.
Belem, un duo doux et audacieux, la rencontre tant attendue de deux artistes généreux.
