Bandoneon
« on: May 09, 2010, 06:49:50 PM »

Found this while looking for Il Postino theme. Thought it may be a chemnitzer but it's the more sombre/sober bandoneon (look no rhinestones!).

Classy performance. Playing without socks looks quite liberating.

May I reccomend this piece http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Txni9rfpnWg&playnext_from=TL&videos=cjCe0C4JmLE.

What is notable (from a bandoneonists point of view) is how much of the piece he plays both pulling and pushing (Piazzola played mainly on the pull).  Whilst this may seem a small point you have to remember that the scales in the two directions are radically different, the same note can be five buttons away when you change direction.

I particularly like the footwork!

[What is notable (from a bandoneonists point of view) is how much of the piece he plays both pulling and pushing] yeah.....though he is closing it using the air button at almost every phrase, but i see what you mean---however, there is this: do we know whether he is using a unisonoric? i see his chromatic accordion there, and often the cba guys learn unisonoric bando......this clip does sound unisonoric to me, though i could certainly be wrong.....richard galliano is a cba/unisonoric bandon whiz.....


here is another unisonoric bando guy who i love, olivier manoury.....and he is using his air button about the same as the gent with the foot....lovely stuff on all their parts....

ha, i see the manoury clip i grabbed because the sound seemed the clearest, looks like just a still photo montage rather than moving parts....here's one where he's moving...he has a really neat cd of thelonius monk tunes on bando, called "bando monk."    cool unisonoric playing....

My comment referred to the Marcucci clip not the barefooted one.

They're all playing bisonorics in these clips. The boxes are Alfred Arnold 142 or 144 AA instruments.

There are two distinct "schools" of playing, either treat it as a unisonoric instrument and play on the pull (except when chording on back up) or treat it more as one would treat any other push/pull instrument and try and balance the air.  Many tango players use the former, I prefer the latter as a more natural approach and giving greater possibilities.  The advantage of the former is that you only need to learn one set of scales.
