Vincent Peirani and Yamandu Costa: Virtuoso Fire - Austria

Vincent Peirani and Yamandu Costa
Vincent Peirani (accordion) and Yamandu Costa (seven-string guitar) are internationally acclaimed for their superb technique on the accordion and guitar. The French accordionist shapes European jazz with a variety of projects, the Brazilian guitarist is referred to as the "Paganini of the guitar" and is considered the most renowned contemporary Brazilian guitarist. Both can refer to an extensive, award-winning discography.

In 2018 Vincent Peirani and Yamandu Costa met at the Festival “Jazz à Porquerolles“ and spontaneously decided to perform together. The concert was a firework of dynamic interaction and marked the beginning of a brilliant collaboration. Each of their performances promises an explosive mix of two gifted artists creating a space on stage that goes beyond the music and lets us experience something extraordinary! Now the gifted musicians have made their first guest appearance as a duo in the Vienna Konzerthaus. Their performance brought a breathtaking evening full of vibrant rhythms and ingenious melodies.

Annie Gong: Guest at Canterbury Accordion Association Jam Session – New Zealand

Annie GongRaelene TurnerOn November 20th, 2022 the Canterbury Accordion Association (CAA) held one of its regular Jam Sessions where players of any instrument join in making music together.

The afternoon started with the group consisting of accordionists, a harmonica player, a brass bass and a keyboard playing a variety of selected pieces from the music provided (picture below). The audience clapped along to ‘Deep in the Heart of Texas’ and the group finished with a few favourite Christmas Carols.

93yr old soloist, Raelene Turner (picture above right) then performed ‘Remember You’re Mine’ and CAA 2022 Scholarship award winner, 10yr old Ivy Du, played ‘Raisins & Almonds’ and ‘Yossel Yossel’.

Then came the highlight of the afternoon with the CAA having the good fortune to welcome Annie Gong (picture above left), professional accordionist and entertainer, (usually entertaining on Cruise ships from London), in New Zealand for the Summer season. Annie is currently in Christchurch and was available to join in the Jam Session.

Annie with her catchy enthusiasm and wonderful talent kept us all spellbound and wanting more. She played short excerpts from pieces such as Toccato in D Minor, Phantom of the Opera and a Jazz piece and then on to a very moving ‘Hallelujah’ and a country music piece ‘Cotton-Eyed Joe’.

The variety of music ended with Annie changing her accordion to sound like the bag-pipes and she marched to ‘Scotland the Brave’ much to the delight of a Scottish member present!

Annie then invited questions on how her MIDI accordion worked and she explained the programming system of different instrumental sounds to create whatever she wanted – even a full orchestra and voices!

Annie’s passion for passing on any information she could and seeing players enjoy playing the accordion was appreciated and well received by all present.

What a treat it was to have such a talented and exciting young player entertain us – thoroughly enjoyed by all! The CAA hopes to invite Annie to join in another one of their events before she returns to London.

Fallece Marie Evelyn Jones (93 años) (1928 a 2022) - Nueva Zelanda

Jones/Masefield Family generations
Marie JonesVídeo de arriba: The Holy City por Stephen Adams, una de las favoritas de Marie Jones, interpretada por Alanah Jones y su padre Maurice Jones en la Celebración de la Vida de Marie Jones el 13 de noviembre de 2022.

Marie Jones fotografiada arriba a los 90 años con su familia.

Poco antes de cumplir 94 años, Marie Evelyn Jones falleció en el Lady Allum Care Suites. Tras haber sufrido recientemente Covid, una pierna rota y dos derrames cerebrales, ahora está en paz.

Hubo una cremación privada, y una celebración de la vida celebrada el 13 de noviembre, para honrar una vida dedicada al acordeón y a la familia, que fue larga y bien vivida.

Marie Jones era la muy querida madre de los acordeonistas Harley Jones, Maurice Jones y Heather Masefield y la amada abuela de Amber Masefield, Grayson Masefield y Alanah Jones. Le sobrevive su hermana Nita Rotherham, la última de sus 6 hermanos.

Vivir en el número 4 de la avenida O'Neills, Accordion House Importer/Retailer, importador/minorista de acordeones, durante casi 60 años, significaba que diariamente había muchas llamadas telefónicas y visitantes que venían a ver primero a su marido Allan Jones y luego, después de 1980, a su hijo Maurice Jones, que importaba acordeones para el mercado australiano en estos locales.

En octubre de 2003, Marie Jones fue la primera persona a la que se le concedió el premio Amigo de Honor del Acordeón de la Confédération Internationale des Accordéonistes (CIA) en el Congreso de la CIA celebrado en Hungría por sus muchos años de contribución al acordeón en Nueva Zelanda, así como por su trabajo en los eventos internacionales celebrados en Nueva Zelanda.
