ANTTI PAALANEN Konzert - Vienna/Austria/Finland

by Diatonic News
Antti Paalanen8. März 2018 / 18.30 / Akkordeonfestival / Sargfabrik

Der finnische Musiker Antti Paalanen nennt sein Akkordeon „Breathbox“, und diesem Instrument entlockt er eine erstaunliche, experimentelle und wagemutige Musik, hypnotisch und genüsslich mit Genres jonglierend. Pop, Heavy Rock, Tango, Techno oder Blues, das alles entlockt Paalanen seiner Breathbox, mit einer Energie und klaren künstlerischen Vision, der sich kaum zu entziehen ist. Antti Paalanen: „My favourite band is AC/DC (…) when I play live I try to get the same energy as rock bands.“

„The accordion is manhandled in a manner that hammers intensive shamanism into wolfram carbide, in a furnace of growling, throat-bellowing and progressive surrealism. (…) the listener has the sense of having visited the furthermost frontiers of unexplainability.“

cajun, zydeco, & swamp pop

Geno Delafose (born February 6, 1972 in Eunice, Louisiana) is a zydeco accordionist and singer. He is one of the younger generations of the genre who has created the sound known as the nouveau zydeco. His sound is deeply rooted in traditional Creole music with strong influences from Cajun music and also country and western. His father is the famous zydeco accordion player John Delafose.

Delafose was born and raised in Eunice, Louisiana. At the age of eight, he joined his father’s band, the Eunice Playboys as a rubboard player and continued to play with the band until his father’s death in 1994.

SAITENWEISE / VIOLINE & AKKORDEON AUF KLANGREISE
Manuel Šavron: Akkordeon Rok Kleva Ivančič: Violine

Seit 2006 spielt der in Slowenien geborene Akkordeonist Manuel Šavron, der derzeit in Österreich lebt, mit Rok Kleva Ivančič in diesem Duo zusammen. 2015 veröffentlichten sie die CD „Ragbag“, ein so eindrucksvolles wie unterhaltsames Dokument ihrer künstlerischen Partnerschaft. Das Diatonic Strings Duo schöpft aus der spielerischen Vertrautheit der beiden Musiker seinen einzigartigen Klang, der Material aus verschiedenen Volksmusiken von Nord bis Süd im Geist und mit der Haltung des Jazz zu einer ganz eigenen Weltmusik verbindet.

ISRAELITE/BIZ/HECKEL (UK/RU/AT) - Akkordeonfestival/Wien

by Diatonic News
ISRAELITE/BIZ/HECKEL (UK/RU/AT)
Fr 2/3/2018 - 18h
DREI MUSIKER UND IHRE IMAGINÄRE FOLKLORE
Koby Israelite: Akkordeon, Perkussion Aliosha Biz: Violine
Stefan Heckel: Akkordeon, Keyboard

Drei hochkarätige Instrumentalisten, alle keine Unbekannten in der Welt des Akkordeon-festivals, konzertieren erstmals gemeinsam als Trio. Die Beteiligten stellen als Kollektiv ihre reichen individuellen Erfahrungen, die von Albumveröffentlichungen auf John Zorns Tzadik (Israelite) über Dobrek Bistro (Biz) bis zur Volksmusik von Blaubauer (Heckel) reichen, in den Dienst der großen künstlerischen Lust am Forschen und dem Aufbrechen von Grenzen. Dabei verneigen sie sich vor Bartoks Imaginärer Folklore und deren Auslegungen, spüren Verbindungen nach und schaffen solche, mit dem Publikum und mit der Musik aus wirklichen und erfundenen Weltregionen. Nicht zuletzt den Verbindungen mit jenen Momenten, in denen Musik aus der Improvisation entsteht.

Veranstaltungsort:
Ehrbar Saal / Mühlgasse 30 / 1040 Wien
