Digital accordion virtuoso Cory Pesaturo was interviewed this afternoon by Robin Young on Here and Now. (To listen, click here.) It’s a wonderful interview that will change the way you listen to accordion. (Not just polka anymore…) All performers of lesser-known instruments might sympathize. Here’s a few youtube clips that show just a bit of variety, starting with Pesaturo.
The boy accordion virtuoso (featured on boingboing) playing Bach’s Passacaglia in C Minor.
And an interview, with sound samples, of South American Chango Spasiuk.
And thanks to Brian, for the Renegade accordion! in NYC:
A classic, of course, would be Pauline Oliveros.
