I’ll try to answer your question about what I think constitutes a good performance, naming players and my reasons for liking them. In earlier times the three voice musette accordion tuning was muzette necessary to “cut through” the background noise made at dance halls and guingettes, as their outdoor version was to be named. However, we are still in pre-amplification days and a strong musette tuning was to continue for some time.

He always played in the Italian style with frequent use of balse right thumb, and this set him apart from the main body of accordionists in France at the time. Wang Yanmeng, a young composer fromRepublic of China Known as Taiwanmet an old accordionist in Prague’s subway station and was deeply moved by the accordion music. I preferred the stuff played by his lower key brother, Freddy. Great for the development and promotion of the instrument, but when it was time for these youngsters to branch out few of them made the big time, as nobody wanted mere facsimiles of “Momo” Players indiffwrence Andre Astier, Joss Baselli, Louis Corchia, Louis Ledrich, and other big names that are far too numerous to list here have obviously proved their mettle, but I wouldn’t go falling over looking for their CDs.

I love listening to Jo Privat, Gus Visieur and Tony Murena, but it’s good to hear about other French accordion players from that period. Yvette Horner was everybody’s darling, except mine. He published a CD of his original accordion music and this is the most well known one from his selection. I have watched a video of the revered French accordionist and teacher, Armand Lassagne, chastise a pupil for not using his thumb on the outside row to achieve the best fingering position for the next passage.

Then, as electronic amplification became available, some of them discarded the musette tuning altogether and played and recorded with single reeds only. In the years immediately preceding World War 2 several musette accordionists had already taken the chromatic instrument to another level and were beginning to incorporate other styles into the music.

I suppose their accuracy is down to what they are used to, but probably takes longer to acquire than the methods which keep the thumb on the side. I remember reading Ferrero’s method book and his rebuke about the 4th row.

Performed by Wang Yi and her friend. His technique was faultless and when he played those polkas the notes were played with a military like precision like machine gun bullets bouncing off a metal air raid shelter. Both of them had individual styles and sounds that nobody else has been able to replicate since. If you are playing a strict tempo Scottish dance tune with the obligatory mega chord intro and exit, or whatever symphony of Beethoven’s you choose to undertake, and you make a mistake, then somebody will surely give you stick for your error.
