Someone has nos loaded this one - excellent in that it includes several tuned and good (albeit 90's technology) shots of Stephane playing.

Curse you Arty for completely hooking me on this strange elixar that is the music of Stephane Delicq!  I am cursed because his beautiful music now streams through my head between youtube listens.  And therein lies the problem: his music cannot be had.  Nowhere to be found are the original CDs he made.  It strikes me as strange that no one has had them reissued or at least put on itunes.  Do his heirs not like money?  If I want something I always assume there must be at least 100,000 more like me, probably more.... Afterall, in a world so big it would be narcissism to assume I am unique.

On the bright side, I did figure out Nadiejda last night, and despite a lifetime needed to master the phrasing and emotion that SD puts into his music, I am nonetheless feeling a bit smug!  Now, if I only knew how to say "Nadiejda," as well as play it...

I've typed up some of his tunes if anyone wants just melody and chords for G/C (not tab).

I've attached a PDF with the melody & chords for 'Valse pour Michel' in Em for D/G players. The tune's got me hooked ...

It's a beautiful tune. Full of nostalgia, but not sentimental.

Curse you Arty

Just don't start sticking pins into little dolls or anything silly like that Grape Ape!

Stephane Delicq made 4 CD's that I am aware of and I have managed to find and purchase new copies of all of them in the last 3 years. I found them on Amazon UK and Amazon Fr all at reasonable and fair prices. It was a matter of checking the Amazon sites every few weeks, until I had them all. Sometimes, Amazon will ask a silly price for a CD, I saw La Discrete advertised once for 95 euros! But they all turned up at sensible prices, under 20 euros, in the end.
For those who don't have his CD's, most of his music is posted on You Tube and there is a Stephane Delicq Facebook page, which is interesting and helpful.

The lovely thing about Stephane's music, is that it is very accessible. It is not so impossibly difficult that one has no chance of ever being able to play it. I am learning Les Amities at the moment - I just love it....I love them all 😊

Enjoy!

Here are the ABC and MuseScore PDFs for 'La Femme de Marbre' - a gorgeous smoochy mazurka, taken from Stephane's playing on the CD 'La Compagnie des Ages' which I obtained from French Amazon. I've given two versions, one in A minor suitable for a G/C box, and another in Em suitable for a D/G box, but probably best if you add a low-octave voice if you have it. The original recording is in Em but I rather suspect he plays it in Em on a G/C box (like playing in Bm on a D/G box). More tricky but gives a lovely sound.  :-*

I'm always interested in anything to do with Stéphane Delicq's tunes, - in any format!

Do you know this resource? - http://accoules.free.fr/diato/partoches/index.htm

There have been suggestions (like here ...http://forum.melodeon.net/index.php/topic,8581.msg113977.html#msg113977 (Clive's post) that Delicq often played a D/G box so maybe he's playing more like Em on a D/G ??

I'm sure someone once said he played DG but an octave down..... or have I dreamt that?

Thanks for the reminder and link to the earlier thread, Steve!
As Andy Simpson in that thread wrote:

I think that might have been for the D/G Castagnari Rik tuned an octave below a standard D/G that was his main box earlier in his career.
That would make sense...  (:)

I'm sure someone once said he played DG but an octave down..... or have I dreamt that?
Q
As Anahata has commented elsewhere, you would need the low B to do that - perfectly possible on a 4th button start box, or one with low notes and no accidentals. But if Stephane was playing on an octave-lower tuned D/G box, then it could be played in the standard Em position.

The other way I have achieved that low Em sound is on my D/G Mory using just the L voice setting on its own.

Play and teach do you happen to have La Discrete typed up? I generally prefer tab as I play different boxes, but knowing it was written for gc, I could probably figure it out.  I found this tablature http://www.comdt.org/comdt-data/profs/Jacques/mazurka_la_discrete.pdf for it online, but I can't sort it out, and the numbers (assuming they are buttons) just don't line up.  So if you or anyone could point me towards a tablature for this song that makes sense, or even the dots without tab it would be something.

Between you and Arty I have really become hooked on this guy's playing!

I have written it out, I'll upload it from the other computer later tonight. [EDIT] Done, now.
By the way, the second section is often played in parallel 6ths - if you want a version with that written on I can easily add them. [EDIT 2] So easy in fact that I've just done it.
[EDIT 3] If you tell me the box you want to play it on, it is a few clicks to transpose it for you. Here it is for a D/G box in Em.

It has been said (though possibly be me!) that the French G/C is "about" playing in Am. I recall an impro event in Gent, we were all told to improvise something to kick off and I think all the melodeonistas set off in Am - "as usual" said Stef Milleret!

But it is such a delicious sound on a GC (:)
