The most famous pieces for accordion

On this page we will talk about famous works for the accordion, which are usually played by musicians studying in colleges or high schools. All 8 compositions differ sharply from each other in sound, complexity in terms of performance technique and overall auditory perception. Lovers of accordion music will also find a suitable play to listen to, which will make you think or just cheer up. V. ZOLOTAREV “FERAPONTS MONASTERY. MEDITATION AT DIONISIA’S FRESSES »This work can be conditionally divided into 2 parts: the introduction sounds in a key in C major, in it the chime of bells is clearly heard. Then begins the main melodic leitmotif in G minor, where during the game the “legato” stroke is mainly used in the parties of both hands. The sound corresponds to the name: thoughtfulness with elements of philosophy is felt here, however, each musician perceives the Ferapontov Monastery in his own way. In order to begin the study, you will need a full accordion, because during the game, several registers are needed, and the left-hand part is played only on the select keyboard. A. PIAZOLLA “LIBERTANGO” The Spanish dance won the hearts of many listeners: the romantic and perky sound leaves no one indifferent, and in terms of technology, difficulties rarely arise. If a musician independently undertook to learn Libertango, it is extremely important to pay attention to dynamics and strokes: they give the composition sophistication. This piece for accordion can also be performed in an ensemble, but most often it is played solo by students of music schools or those who are already performing on stage. In order to understand the beauty of accordion music, watch the professional performance video “Libertango” by A. Piazzolla E. DERBENKO “PADESPANI” Spanish motifs are clearly slipping into this Russian dance: castanets are used in a trio or quartet, and the piece is written in the size of ¾ like most of Spain’s plays. If you learn it yourself, you will have to face many difficulties, because the accompaniment bears a considerable load, and the speed of movement of the fingers of the right hand is also important: if they are not sufficiently mobile, you should choose another play. Padespan is usually played by students at international competitions, so training is crucial. D. BUXSTEHUDE “Prelude and Fuga in F Sharp Minor” Dietrich Buxtehude is a German organist whose works were heard even by the notorious I.S. Bang. Of course, the notes of “Preludes and Fugues” for the accordion are arranged, but the color and timbre do not deteriorate at all: just turn on the organ register on the instrument and you can practically recreate the original sound, but for the left-hand part you need an optional keyboard. The technique of performance is not particularly difficult, therefore, all musicians can begin to study the composition after 4-5 years of training. Z. ABREU “TIKO-TIKO” For beginner musicians, this piece for the accordion, written in the Brazilian style, will be the easiest to master – just 2-3 years of training, and “Tiko-Tiko” will sound perfect. There is no complicated load on the fingers: the bass part can be played on a regular keyboard, and it usually takes no more than two days to study the main melody. V. SEMENOV “SONATA No. 1” The work is performed at the pace of “Largo”, but its text is full of “sixteenth” notes, therefore it does not sound slow. During the game, musicians have to apply many tricks – ricochets, melismas, vibrato – all of them add richness and create a feeling of anxiety while listening. Despite the rather convenient tone for the performers – the D minor – it is extremely difficult to master a three-piece composition from a technical point of view without many years of preparation. I. PANITSKY “THERE IS A MAIL THROUGH THINKING” Fans of Russian folk songs can study this fun music written by a famous performer and composer from Saratov. For a good sound, the simplest accordion is enough: there are no complicated transitions of parts from one hand to another, and only tremolo is used from techniques. V. ZOLOTAREV “ISPANIADA” Another piece by the composer from the Khabarovsk Territory is also very popular among accordionists and accordionists. It sounds rather changeable: a warlike start in bass, then an alarmed part of the right hand, modulation, a lot of long force plugs, playing with fur. Self-study is quite difficult, but if you wish, you can master the “Spanish Dance” if you have good musical training. (votes: 1, average: 5.00 out of 5)
