    Short Concert Piece For Accordion

    All of y'all,

    Here is my Short Concert Piece For Accordion.

    I achieved the slightly out-of-tune, folksy accordion sound by using two instances of the instrument and slightly detuning one of them.

    This work is only two minutes long. I would consider expanding it if there is any interest in this sort of thing.

    (I still think that I am being hoodwinked as far as the alleged present-day popularity of the accordion is concerned.)

    Take care,

    Larry

    Hoodwinked? Certainly not. Have you ever heard of the
    super-secret society called the Illuminati? They covertly
    control the entire world... and every single one of them is
    an accordion player!


    In fact, Larry, uh, you wouldn't be a member, now, would
    you, you crafty old fox?

    Seriously, nice job on this... there's a lot of potential in
    accordion with various ensembles, and this piece surely
    would testify to that.

    I'm not so sure about the more "squeeze-box"-like sound;
    the purer classical sound of fine instruments is what I am
    most used to -- more like a woodwind in its sound, often,
    than the chambered open reed that it is.

    Keep 'em coming, Larry. This is getting interesting -- it
    really is a neglected instrument in many regards; and more
    exposure of it is worthwhile.

    Best,

    Thanks, Mr. Dave.

    I am what I am today because of you. Why did you do this awful thing to me.

    I like accordion music, so let's have some more.

    The person that owned that music box played the accordion and she was also a REPUBLICAN.

    Time to get out the Weejee board!

    Hi Larry,

    thank you for this new piece. I really think that the accordion deseves new pieces and attention by concert composers and you are doing a good job with it.

    Not at all. Accordion is (or at least can be) really wonderful. If you want, be inspired by this excerpt of André Astier's divertimento for accordion, played by my music partner Robert Opiola. In the second file you can hear how well the accordion matches as an accompagniement with my violin.

    These are live recordings, so do not expect perfection. Also to aviod copyright issues - this is for information only, and I truncated the pieces. The password is your initials (all three letters as capitals).

    I love your sense of humor! Thank you. I need all of the mirth I can get during these trying days.
