New Book “THE ACCORDION IN THE 19TH CENTURY” by Gorka Hermosa Sanchez - Spain

by Diatonic News

Gorka Hermosa says: This book is a study and analisys of the origin of the keyboard free reed instruments and their organologic and musical development in the 19th century.

In the book, we present some new ideas about the history of these instruments and we broke some of the most widespreaded ideas about this subject written in the most important books about the history of the accordion: : In chapter I, we will analyze the antecedents of the accordion and will vindicate that the first known predecessor of the free reed instruments is not the tcheng. In chapter II, we will analyze the organologic evolution of the accordion and will question that it was invented by Demian in 1829. In chapter III we will describe the evolution of the accordion in the 19th c. music and will try to argue that current convertor accordions have more similarities to the concertina or the harmonium than to the diatonic accordions from the 19th c. Finally, in annexes I and II, we will present a list of Romantic works written for concertina and harmonium by the greatest composers of the 19th century that have been rarely played in the last century and that we try to rescue with the publication of this book.

The book hasn`t been though to be sold, but to be downloaded by free to try to widespread as much as possible the ideas that it contains. Although, if someone would like to have it in paper, can write me a private message and I will tell what to do to have it.

World’s First Kauri Accordion produced in Finland

by Kevin Friedrich
As part of an International venture between New Zealand and Finland, a local craftsman in Finland has constructed the world's first accordions made from the prized native New Zealand 'Kauri' tree.

The dream of Kevin Friedrich, born in Dargaville, New Zealand (near where the giant Kauri trees grow), and a regular visitor to Ikaalinen, Finland, the home to a rare accordion making school, where trainees are taught the art of constructing accordions in the traditional Finnish folk style, this project combines the rich and rare tradition of Finland's accordion making culture with the stunning timber of the New Zealand Kauri tree.

Under the hands of master Finnish craftsman Aaro Luukinen, the dream of a Kauri instrument has now become a reality. Three magnificent instruments K1, K2 and K3, all to be officially named at a later date, have been crafted. The first of the instruments K1, will be housed at the Dargaville Museum, which already features extensive displays on the history of the Kauri trade in the Dargaville area. This instrument crafted from Kauri timber from Dargaville, will be used for performances in the region to showcase this unique and beautiful instrument, the world's first made from the Kauri timber.

K2 will be housed in Ikaalinen, Finland and will be the showcase instrument of the craftsman and accordion making facility, while K3 will become my personal instrument for Kevin to keep in New York and will be used for personal performances.

Each instrument while similar in design, is slightly unique, and profile the individual finishing touches of Aaro's design. In addition, each instrument has a unique grill pattern designed by Aaro’s wife, Henriikka. The three patterns which were later hand carved by Aaro are titled ‘Birth’, ‘Growth’ and ‘Departure’.

The instruments were completed and officially unveiled on 30 January 2013 in Ikaalinen, Finland at an International Press Conference, with the debut performance scheduled for March 24th, 2013 in Dargaville, New Zealand at the 6th Annual Afternoon of Music with myself and my fellow musicians.

Aaro Luukinen was born in Lapland in Northern Finland. His father Matti Luukinen had an accordion workshop and a small factory in the village Salla. The workshop specialised in diatonic accordions and was the only accordion manufacturer in Finland since the Kouvola factory stopped in 1995. Matti Luukinen worked for more than 30 years building accordions. Aaro grew up in this atmosphere of accordion building and got a lot of knowledge from his father. Both parents were professional with Aaro's mother making more than 500 sets of accordion bellows by herself.

Aaro studied accordion building at the Ikaalinen Arts and Crafts School and graduated as an Artisan in 2003. He worked in his father's factory in 2006-2008 and since then, he has operated his own accordion workshop and now serves as a teacher of accordion making at the Ikaalinen College of Crafts and Design.

Harmonika Gigant bei Fasnacht in Nassereith/Tirol - Österreich

by Diatonic News
Im Februar fand das traditionelle Schellerlaufen in Nassereith statt. Etwa 6000-7000 Besucher machten sich trotz nicht allzu schönem Wetter auf den Weg dorthin um diesen alten Brauch miterleben zu dürfen. Zirka 450 Männer und Burschen haben daran teilgenommen. Frauen und Mädchen dürfen daran nicht teilnehmen. Hauptfigur ist der Bär und der Bärentreiber. Beim Kampf bezwingt der Bär, er verkörpert den Frühling, den Bärentreiber, er verkörpert den Winter. Neben Kehrer, Roller, Scheller, Sackner und Spritzer wurden auch 6 Fasnachtwägen gebaut. Einer davon verkörperte heuer die steirische Harmonika. Diese ist von der Fasnacht nicht wegzudenken.

Francisco el Hombre Festival - Columbia

by Diatonic News
22-24 Marzo 2013

El Festival Francisco el Hombre es un proyecto cultural con el cual se institucionaliza un reconocimiento anual a la música vallenata contemporánea, a través de quienes se destaquen como sus mejores intérpretes. El Festival promoverá y exaltará la calidad artística del vallenato actual expresado en sus distintas variantes, a saber: tradicional, nueva ola, romántico o moderno.

•Promover la calidad artística de la música vallenata.
•Premiar el esfuerzo de quienes se destaquen durante el año como sus mejores interpretes.
•Promover el surgimiento de nuevos talentos.
•Promover el desarrollo cultural y turístico del Departamento de La Guajira.
•Promocionar a Riohacha como ciudad que impulsa y apoya la música vallenata.
•Contribuir a la generación de empleos e ingresos.

Francisco el Hombre is a legendary figure, said to have originated the musical genre of Vallenato in Colombia. His story is very unclear and has been told by word of mouth from generation to generation.
[edit] The Story
His full name is Francisco Antonio Moscote. Francisco El Hombre is rumored to have gone around town to town in Colombia spreading news through the art of song. Not only did he sing the news, but he did it to the rhythm of an accordion that he always played whilst singing. This is how the genre of Vallenato in Colombia came to be. The exact era of his appearances is not known but it is rumored to have started around the late 1870s and early 1880s.
Another Myth
There is also a myth in Colombia where he was involved in a musical contest with Satan "El Diablo" and beat him with the rhythm of accordion and his voice. This is how he received the nickname "El Hombre" (The Man), which is how most Colombians know him - Francisco El Hombre. This myth also shows Colombia's strong Christian roots that have been integrated into everyday culture.

Erst viel später, als Theo Knopf bereits 47 Jahre alt war, nahm er in Pegnitz bei Fritz Pastyrik Unterricht, um nach dessen Lehrkonzept nun auch nach regulärer Notenschrift spielen zu lernen. Knopf spielt heute teilweise nach Ziffernnotation, teilweise nach Noten oder einfach nach Gehör und auswendig. In seinem Repertoire führt er über 80 verschiedene Tänze, ältere Schlager und Spielstücke von Andreas Hader, wie etwa der Ostergalopp "Ds Madla von dr Gmaa". Theo Knopf komponiert auch eigene Stücke, wie etwa die bekannt gewordene Degelmann-Polka oder diverse Ländler und Walzer. Er bevorzugt unter seinen Instrumenten die vierchörige Haustein-Konzertina (in Es) sowie eine vierchörige Birnstock-Konzertina (in C) mit Tonabnehmer, da er ab und zu auch im Freien aufspielt. Er musiziert zur eigenen Unterhaltung oder zur Unterhaltung im Freundeskreis, im Wirtshaus, bei Tanzveranstaltungen und bei privaten Festen.

Stage: La musica di Yann Tiersen con Gianni Ventola Danese - Italia

by Diatonic News
23 marzo 2013
La musica di Yann Tiersen

La Valse d'Amelie, chi non la conosce e, soprattutto, chi non la suona o ha provato a suonarla con l'organetto? Ma l'immaginario musicale del grande compositore francese non si esaurisce nel brano che gli ha dato la notorietà. Molti altri, e forse più belli, sono i brani scritti dal musicista francese nei quali la fisarmonica ricopre un ruolo principe. Sur le fil, La Noyée, Le Moulin, La Valse des monstres, J'y suis Jamais allé, La valse de vieux os. Sono solo alcuni tra i tanti titoli del repertorio per organetto di Yann Tiersen. Esploreremo insieme un universo musicale raffinato, suggestivo, ricco di emozioni, che si sposa perfettamente con le sonorità dell’organetto.

by Diatonic News
WOMAD - World of Music, Arts and Dance the internationally established festival, which brings together artists from all over the globe. The central aim of the WOMAD festival is to celebrate the world's many forms of music, arts and dance.

As an organisation, WOMAD now works in many different ways, but our aims are always the same - at
festivals, performance events, through recorded releases and through educational projects, we aim to excite, to inform, and to create awareness of the worth and potential of a multicultural society.

Peter Gabriel was one of WOMAD's co-founders: "Pure enthusiasm for music from around the world led us to the idea of WOMAD in 1980 and thus to the first WOMAD festival in 1982. The festivals have
always been wonderful and unique occasions and have succeeded in introducing an international audience to many talented artists."

"Equally important, the festivals have also allowed many different audiences to gain an insight into cultures other than their own through the enjoyment of music. Music is a universal language, it draws people together and proves, as well as anything, the stupidity of racism." Peter Gabriel

From the diatonica music world taking part:

Yoshiya Watanabe (1952-2013), Tokyo – Japan

by Rob Howard
Yoshiya Watanabe
Yoshiya WatanabeYoshiya Watanabe, well known accordion researcher and collector, player and analyst, died from cancer on Sunday February 9th 2013, aged 60. He was one of an international band of collectors of old and antique accordions, and had a large collection of his own. He also had a great knowledge of anything to do with accordions, which he was always willing to share with others.

Picture left in 1968.

Brought up in Egypt, then Germany where he attended the International School in Hamburg, and later the International Christian University, Tokyo, where he graduated in biology and organic chemistry, Yoshiya Watanabe was fluent in both German and English. He translated the novel ‘Accordion Crimes’ into Japanese. Employed in the chemical industry with the Mitsui company, Yoshiya also lived in Brazil, where he made many contacts with accordionists.

Yoshiya began learning the accordion in Hamburg in 1966, and played both button and piano accordion. A skilled and practical man, in 1985 Yoshiya designed and built what may have been the world’s first MIDI synthesizer accordion. This instrument had bellows sensors, and was exhibited at the International Science Expo ’85 in Tsukuba, Japan. Yoshiya Watanabe was also the author of two books about the accordion.

Yoshiya Watanabe was very well liked and respected by all who came into contact with him. He is survived by a wife Kyoko, daughter Sakura and son Taira.

Diatonic Akkordeon Spielkurse in Agatharied - Germany

by Diatonic News
22. bis 25. März 2013

Die Kurse gehen nun in die 8. Runde. Es gibt dabei Gelegenheit, auf dem traumhaften Berghof Akkordeon (Drehleier, Dudelsack, und Streich-instrumenten) zu

Workshop 4 - Diatonisches Akkordeon mit Jan Budweis
(G/C), (jedes Niveau, keine Anfänger)

Einfache Tanzmelodien sind oft kurz und leben durch ständige Wiederholungen. Um sie beim Aufspielen zum Tanz oder beim Erarbeiten eines Konzertprogramms abwechslungsreich und spannend zu gestalten gibt es viele Möglichkeiten, die wir in diesem Kurs erlernen wollen: Z.B. rhythmische Gestaltungsvarianten der rechten und linken Hand, das Akkordspiel auf der Diskantseite und Phrasierungs- und Verzierungstechniken. Ein weiterer Schwerpunkt ist das Erarbeiten von Variationen bis hin zu kleinen Improvisationen. Ziel des Kurses ist, dass die Teilnehmer mit den erlernten Fertigkeiten kreativ und spielerisch umgehen können, wobei sich jeder Einzelne entsprechend seiner individuellen Möglichkeiten in das Zusammenspiel integrieren kann. Auf Anfrage kann ein separater Anfängerkurs angeboten werden!

Die Tournee umfasst 4 Konzerte: Freitag, 15 Màrz 2013 - von 19.30 bis 21.30 h Neunkirchen, Sparkassensaal der Musikschule Neunkirchen
16.3. St. Georgen (Kärnten), 17.3. Graz und 19.3. Akkordeonfestival Wien

Das „Duo BayanTonic“ wird von zwei in der nordischen Akkordeonwelt berühmten Musikern gebildet, Lars Karlsson aus Schweden auf seiner diatonischen Harmonika & Øivind Farmen aus Norwegen auf seinem Bajan. Sie kennen einander von einigen Konzerten bereits seit 1994, aber ihre eigentliche Kooperation begann im Jahr 2006 mit einer Tour auf Island. Da beide ihre Wurzeln in der traditionellen Folklore haben, verstehen sie einander perfekt, auch wenn sie auf zwei ganz verschiedenen Instrumenten spielen.

Sie haben Konzerttourneen in viele Länder unternommen, und durch die Mischung verschiedener Musikstile zeigen sie in ihren Shows die musikalische Breite des Akkordeons.

Ein Konzert mit dem „Duo BayanTonic“ beschert dem Publikum traditionelle nordische Volkslieder, Klassik, Barock, Tango, zeitgenössischer Musik, Musette-Walzer usw…

Eine musikalische Gratwanderung - Österreich

by Werner Weibert
Der Südtiroler Komponist und Multiinstrumentalist Herbert Pixner zählt mittlerweile zu den angesagtesten und kreativsten Harmonikavirtuosen im gesamten Alpen-raum. Mit „NA UND!?“ ist sein Herbert Pixner Projekt Vorreiter einer neuen Generation von Alpenmusikern. Er belebt mit seinen Harmonika-Kompositionen die Volks-musik und wird immer mehr von Harmonikaspielern und Volksmusikgruppen nachgeeifert. 200 Konzerte im In- und Ausland, Auftritte in großen TV-Shows sowie viele CD-Einspielungen als Solist oder mit diversen Gruppen sind nur einige Gründe, weshalb „Herbert Pixner“ in der Musik- und Kulturszene nördlich und südlich das Aus-hängeschild des Alpenraumes ist. Herbert Pixners Erfolg beruht auf seiner absolut authentischen, natürlichen Art, die man als Zuhörer und Volksmusikkenner einfach ehrlich spürt.
Herbert Pixner wurde in der Kategorie „innovative Har-monikamusik“ die Auszeichnung „Stern des Jahres“ verliehen.
Musikalisch spannt das Trio einen Bogen von traditio-neller, alpenländischer und internationaler Volksmusik, über viele Eigenkompositionen, bis hin zu Blues, Swing, Samba und Tango.
Zum zweiten Mal tritt Herbert Pixner mit seinen beiden Freunden in Öblarn/Steiermark auf.
Das Konzert findet am Freitag, 5. & Samstag, 6. April 2103 um 20 Uhr im KU:L statt.

Uno dei gruppi più seguiti del 2012, in edicola su XL di Repubblica a Novembre nella compilation Puglia Sounds New, fra i migliori 25 videoclip italiani per il PIVI, fra i 30 finalisti al PVI, disponibile per un live travolgente al ritmo della musica dei porti dell'Adriatico.

Andrea Perrone Tromba
Vincenzo Grasso Clarinetto e sax tenore

La banda è un incontro di culture e provenienze sotto il segno del Mar Adriatico. A Maggio 2008 i musicisti si imbarcano su Idea 2, un veliero che li conduce nei porti dell’Adriatico dove nascono le basi di un nuovo repertorio adriatico. Il progetto diventa “Rotta per Otranto” un film nel quale si racconta questa straordinaria avventura. Da Venezia a Capodistria, da Dubrovnik a Durazzo fino a Otranto, il veliero Idea 2 trasporta musicisti-marinai che raccontano in musica le proprie esperienze di viaggio. La banda collabora stabilmente con:
- Boban e Marko Markovic,
- la Kocani Orkestar,
- il coro bulgaro di Eva quartet
- Raiz e Radicanto.
