Giunto oramai alla Va edizione, il concorso internazionale “Fisa…armonie” di Trieste pone al centro dell’attenzione del grande pubblico la fisarmonica, uno strumento molto diffuso ed amato sia in Italia che in altri paesi. Il successo conseguito nelle edizioni precedenti ha ulteriormente motivato e spronato il comitato organizzatore, composto dalla scuola di musica Glasbena Matica, l’associazione culturale Altamarea, l’associazione Cluster e, da quest’anno, dall’orchestra di fisarmoniche “GM Synthesis 4”.

Alle scorse edizioni hanno partecipato concorrenti provenienti, oltre che dall’Italia, dalla vicina Slovenia, dalla Croazia e dalla Serbia.

Frank Marocco, Hollywood Accordionist
Aug., 3, 2007
Anna and I recently saw the new Disney-Pixar film Ratatouille (two thumbs up!) and we came away big fans of Michael Giacchino’s soundtrack, particularly for its liberal use of the accordion. (As you might expect from a film set in Paris.) But who was squeezing the bellows as Remy and his buddies took over the kitchen at Gusteau’s? Sure enough, it was the hardest-working accordionist in Hollywood, Frank Marocco.Frank Marocco grew up just outside of Chicago (Waukegan) and started playing the accordion when he was only seven years old. By the 1950s, he had formed his own trio and played the hotel and club circuit around Las Vegas and Palm Springs before moving to Los Angeles. There, he played with the Les Brown Band, joined Bob Hope on countless tours overseas, and began his career as a highly sought-after session musician. His hundreds of credits range from the Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds to the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Odds are, if you hear an accordion in a movie, TV show, or commercial — it’s Frank Marocco.One of Marocco’s hallmarks has always been his versatility. Jazz, classical, latin… regardless of the genre, he always plays flawlessly and passionately. Here’s a video clip of Marocco performing his own arrangement of Astor Piazzola’s classic tango, “Oblivion”:

"All these musical groups are loyal to the conjunto tradition. We invite everyone to come learn about this tradition and celebrate with us in an event that connects you to the past."Sponsors include Miller Lite, the San Benito Chamber of Commerce, Su Clinica Familiar, and the City of San Benito.

Pulaski Polka Days Wrapup
Jul., 25, 2007
Sounds like last weekend’s Pulaski Polka Days, where “polka rhythm filled the air and infiltrated people’s bones,” was a rousing success. According to the Green Bay Press-Gazette’s recap, there was a lively turnout — young and old alike — for the 29th edition of one of the nation’s biggest polka festivals:“If you think polka music is uncool or only for the elderly, talk to Eric Niziolek, 25, and his buddies, who have been coming to the event from their homes near Wausau every year for about the last five years. ‘Good music, good people, girls and beer,’ said Niziolek when asked what kept him coming back.”I also found a Flickr photoset that captures the festival parade, as well as some of the bands, including the shot below — appropriately titled “Only in Wisconsin.”Pulaski Polka Days 2007, uploaded by The Dana Files
Olive Blossoms
Jul., 23, 2007
Greetings UKAO:

I have recently released an album of accordion solos.  The objective of this CD is to promote the accordion as a unique solo instrument and to demonstrate what the instrument can do, provided the hours are put in to achieve that goal. 
The CD is titled: "Olive Blossoms", which is arguably one of the prettiest tunes ever written for the instrument. 
Please read about it by clicking on the following links:

For the seventh time the city of Imst (located in Tyrol, near Innsbruck) organized a workshop for musicians and artistes of different styles from July 9th to 13th 2007. Participants had the opportunity to combine some relaxing days with artistic activity.

Bayanist/accordionist Friedrich Lips (from the Gnessin Academy of Music in Moscow) gave solo lessons to participants giving his view of how to solve musical and technical problems, performance on stage, etc. Lips’ next year’s workshop at ‘Kulturlaub’ will take place from July 7th to 11th or July 14th to 18th 2008.

‘La Petit Robinson’ Closes, Paris - France
Jul., 21, 2007
The oldest guinguette in Paris, ‘La Petit Robinson’, has been sold. Ginguettes are known as meeting places in France, where all most well known of the accordion artistes have were performed during the 20th Century, such as Yvette Horner, André Verchuren...and many others. Right is a picture of Jean-Louis Noton and a friend about to enjoy.

The guingettes were places for workers coming together, having fun with their accordions and, drinking a glass of wine. Philippe Blanchi, the former owner has decided to go and live in Quebec, where he bought wine bar.

Before his departure he invited his friends to his house in the Normandie to empty his wine cellar. Further on the menu: lobster, foie grass and smoked salmon, accompanied by the best French wine.
