Beltrami Accordion Festival, Aberdeen - UK
Contributed by Romano Viazzani
Norman English (picture left), Manager of Pianos and Keyboards at Bruce Millers Music Store, Aberdeen, visited the Aberdeen Arts Centre earlier this year. Nothing strange about that you may think! However Norman’s attention was less focused on the stage and more on the great acoustics and ambience of this intimate theatre.
Norman said, “It struck me immediately that it would make a great venue for an accordion festival”, and within two weeks of that visit he had booked the theatre for October 21st, confirmed local artistes and set about obtaining the services of two international class accordionists, Mauro Carra (picture right), from Italy, and Emir Bosnjak, a Bosnian artiste who is in great demand for recitals and concerts through out the world.
Having previously hosted a performance by Mauro within Bruce Millers that was very warmly received, Norman felt strongly that the public would again welcome an opportunity to experience accordion playing taken to a new dimension. On that occasion the audience was delighted by the quality sounds from the hand made Beltrami accordion that Mauro was demonstrating. Norman compered the Arts Centre event and delighted the crowd with his own interpretation of the ‘Dark Island’ and ‘Nut Rocker’.
Sadly, Emir’s performance at the festival was called off at the last minute due to ill health. However Mauro’s talent and wonderful choice of music brought gasps from the audience and tumultuous applause. He again held the enthralled audience in the palm of his hand.
On the bill alongside the international performers were local talents accordionists Gordon Middler and Tom Orr (both picture above), and singer Lauren Hart (picture right). Lauren, who this year performed at the Edinburgh Festival, sang Italian Arias and traditional Burns songs, which were very well received, and Anne Deans ably accompanied her.
Representing up and coming young musicians was Craig Patton (picture left), Under 16 Scottish Champion. Craig demonstrated his accordion skills admirably and his personality also shone through. The audience were also privileged to have Ian Middler, accompanied by his son, Gordon, Tom Orr and Duncan Christie. Ian sang a selection of Scottish songs and contributed to the variety in the show.
The packed evening demonstrated the versatility of accordions with a mixture of traditional Scottish, popular and classical pieces.
The program of singing and playing had something to offer amateur and professional musicians alike and those who simply appreciate others talent and enjoy family entertainment in comfortable surroundings. The impromptu rendition of ‘O Sole Mio’, by Lorenzo, one of the group of Italian visitors over for the festival, was a perfect finale.
Richard Galliano and Michel Portal at the Wigmore Hall, London - UK
Contributed by Romano Viazzani
November 20th was a special night indeed at the Wigmore Hall where we were treated to a feast of extemporisation from two masters of their art form. Richard Galliano has drawn on his Classical, Jazz, Musette and Tango influences to create his own truly unique sound. A multi-instrumentalist, Michel Portal, who not only played clarinet, bass clarinet and soprano saxophone but bandoneon, too, joined him on stage.
The repertoire consisted of some of Galliano’s own compositions like ‘Tango pour Claude’ and ‘Viaggio’, several of Astor Piazzolla’s compositions including ‘Oblivion’ and ‘Libertango’ as well as a beautifully improvised ‘Indifference’ (Colombo/Murena) duet on accordion and bandoneon. The Wigmore Hall, now getting in the habit of hosting accordionists, was full to the brim. After the concert a group of students from the Royal Academy of Music and myself went backstage to congratulate Galliano on his splendid performance. He is an accordion superstar who draws in audiences by the thousand. Power to his bellow-shaking elbow!
