Owen Murray in "The Plague" at The Barbican - Report
Feb., 14, 2011
Owen Murray
‘The Plague’, which was performed at London’s Barbican Centre on Sunday 15th January 2011, was commissioned by the BBC and first performed in 1964. It is based on a musical setting of a novel entitled ‘The Plague’, by the French writer Albert Camus. The novel tells the story of a town on the coast of Algeria which is hit by a plague carried by rats and all the horrors and effects ongoing from that.

Roberto Gerhard (1896 – 1970) set the story to music using a narrator, a large chorus and orchestra (the London orchestra Da Camera, conducted by David Temple) with the orchestration including a large part for accordion, which adds brilliantly to the orchestral tonal color of the accompaniment of the narrator and choir. 

This Barbican performance received high praise from the music critics. The accordion part by Owen Murray blended brilliantly with choir and percussion in some of the most dramatic parts of the score and the narration, so much so, that one critic described it as ‘the lungs’ of the orchestra. Owen Murray received with the conductor and narrator an especially loud cheer from a very appreciative Barbican audience.

Roberto Gerhard, also composed a ‘Concerto for 8 instruments’, one of which is the accordion. Like ‘The Plague’ it is a rarely performed work but one of exceptional tonal colour.

The Sultans of Squeeze
Jan., 27, 2011

JOHN KIRKPATRICK & CHRIS PARKINSONThe Sultans of Squeeze is a new duo that first appeared in 2004 as the brainchild of Warrington Folk Club organiser Geoff Bibby, who put them on at his club in January. The Sultans have since appeared at Sidmouth and Whitby festivals, and at The Electric Theatre, Guildford..
They present a huge variety of music, performed on every possible combination of their various squeeze-boxes - John on one-row and two-row melodeons, three-row button accordion, and treble and bass anglo concertinas, and Chris on various two-row melodeons, piano accordion, and bass piano accordion. As well as the traditional folk songs and tunes that you might expect to hear from these two, they also tackle military marches, French waltzes, nostalgic popular classics and signature tunes, blues, zydeco, jazz, rock & roll, and some pieces of their own making as well.With a combined experience of squeezing just about every kind of music, both within the folk scene and quite outside it, John and Chris fearlessly hurl themselves into whatever genre takes their fancy, knowing that if one of them falls flat on their face, the other one will be able to keep a holding pattern going till a full recovery is possible! It's a rare treat to see two such accomplished old hands enjoy and explore the endless possibilities that their instruments offer, displaying a relaxed confidence and a complete trust in each other's skill and ability.

David Vernon Concert - Report - MIDDLESBROUGH
Jan., 27, 2011
Fantastic World famed Accordionist at Stainton Village Memorial Hall.
Making his fourth visit to The Accordion Workshop Gtoup in Stainton Memorial Hall 
(Middlesbrough) David Vernon , world famed accordionist who plays at concertsandFestivals allovertheworld,held his audience in the palm of his hand as he gave a master class in accordion dexterity. 

A real home spun Scottish Acccordiomst, David, who plays without a note of music, wizzed throughan ever changing repertoire of reels,jigs, ballads, waltzes and Latin American numbers without a moments hesitation, making his specially made 96 Bass accordion almost talk.

Before David took the stage, some talented amateur artiste had been assembled by compere Tom Baines.
Firsily young Cornet player Robin Ballantyne, aged twelve, who first played at Stainton last year. 
A confident and talented young musician from Oldham, who plays Cornet m the school band, and with Dobcross Youth Band, Robin .accompanied on the piano by her father Tony, opened with 
" Prince of Denmark March" then into "Georgia on my mind", a real crowd pleaser. 
Lovely mellow tones, confident upper reaches,with a perfect finishing upper octave note, Robin deserved every moment of her applause. 

Rob and Margaret Trigg, representing the Accordion Workshop joined for three duets,"Petite Fleur" a workshop favourite,"AutumnLeaves", and"Ballerina"which all require dexterity of fingering which Rob and Margaret blended together, alternating between "first" and "second" accordion as they interpreted the music.
DavidVernon reminded us that his roots were in Edinburgh, with a strong Scottish flavour to his music. Reels and Jigs showed fast and furious fingering, feet were tapping, hands were clapping.

His expertise was amazing, Ms control over the instrument, contrasts, single reed to multi voices, and all with the effortless style which we'd come to expect. Tangos reminded him of his film career, brief though it might have been!!

His specially arranged " nobility set" retained the names of Scottish nobility in every tune, but perhaps surpassing mis was "Butterfly" with a smooth ,fast flowing right hand movement Tunes with a strong Jewish flavour, bringing out lots of left hand button control, ted him into '* The Shetland 2 Step" another workshop piece, finishing the first half with the French waltz "Excelsior".

James Ballantyne aged 14, ( Robin's cousin) took the stage with his Alto Sax. A member of the CUtheroe Royal Grammer School SwingBand, James had his own multi instrument backing tape, giving us " do nothing till you hear from me 'V'Oye- como-va", and "sway" which the audience certainly did, his concentration was intense, his timing to perfection, his contrasts in pitch and tone appeared effortless, his entries were absolutely on the beat. The audience loved him.

Tom Baines took the stage as the Workshop's solo accordionist. First a French Number " a man, a woman" played on "musette". Then "Waltz from the Jazz Suite", again a popular workshop numberwith most members following the notes with fingers on their knees.!! And then back to David Vernon, "Gold and Silver Waltzes" known everyoneinthehall,then in to more Scottish reels and jigs, with a numbe rof David's own arrangements of popular tunes all in the key of F .
 
Lots of lightening finger works, lots of  intense left hand button runs, all looking effortless, but the accordionists in the audience knowing just how hard they were to execute so cleanly. Tunes from "The Godfather" had a haunting start, then filled u p , changed tempos before coming back to a haunting ending on a single reed, and, judging by the humming along in the hall, pleasing everyone.A "Roulette Wheel" was another of David's favourites, the exacting right hand finger work having to minor the wheels erratic rotations, slowing, speeding rising, falling .until settling, was it a winner? Certainly it was with David's skill.

We heard "Braid View" based on David's own views over Edinburgh, "Sunny Spain" changing the mood, then into some '"popular waltzes" initially with audience participation, but with so many variations that humming was easiest 

Changing completely, David introduced a Scaadanavian set, incorporating two waltzesmerging intotwopolkas,alltestinghisdexteritytothelimits.Hepassed!!
Finale time brought an "American Medley", mostly well known to the audience, then finally one of 

David's own compositions and most certainly one of our favourites. "Flying Scotsman" written to encompass the highs and lows, speeds and crawls, as the Flying Scotsman completes its journey rrom London to Edinburgh. ^

A wonderful accordionist, with one amazing instrument No attachments, no enhancements, no music, just an evening of pure accordion genius, reflected in the prolonged applause as he finally left the stage,

Hi UKAO,
 
Happy New Year. This is the info about the show tour I'm involved with this year.
I'm in it both acting and playing and I have written 99% of the music for it too apart 
from the Classic Piaf songs so there should be plenty in it to interest accordionists. 
Karen Street has written one of the songs too.
 
All the best,
