100 лет со дня рождения Лассе Пихлайамаа (1916-2007) - Финляндия

Video 1:

Видео 1: Исторический видео клип
Видео 2: Одно из известнейших произведений «Воспоминания юности».

Сто лет со дня рождения Лассе Пихлайамаа (1916-2007) отпраздновали в Финляндии рядом концертов, выставок и других мероприятий. Лассе Пихлайамаа (1916-2007) был финским аккордеонистом, композитором-аранжировщиком, учителем, конферансье и комическим аккордеонистом мирового класса, отцом целого модельного рядя аккордеонов.

Он родился 1-го августа 1916 года в Йамижарви, маленькой деревне в Западной Финляндии.

Он был пионером финской аккордеонной школы. Как композитор он искал художественные и технические пределы инструменты уже в 1940-х, когда «Танец ветра», «Полет дракона», «Вариации минора», и много других сочинений опередивших свое время были написаны. Фотография слева, 1942. Фотография справа, 1986.

Преподавая в своем собственном институте аккордеона в Хельсинки с 1957 по 1972 год, Лассе Пихлайамаа оказал решающее влияние на всю профессиональную педагогику аккордеонной школы Финляндии. Благодаря его усилиям, с 1977 года открыты кафедры аккордеона в нескольких крупных консерваториях, в том числе в Академии Сибелиуса в Хельсинки.

Лассе Пихлайамаа является одной из ведущих фигур в современном финском (и нордическом) языке аккордеонного искусства. Лассе Пихлайамаа скончался 14 ноября 2007 года в Хельсинки.

Джо Дерран (1930-2016), Массачуссетс - США

Joe DerraneВидео: Отрывок из "В исполнении Джо Дерран (1995)", документального фильма о баянисте Джо Дерран из Рэндолфа, штат Массачусетс. Продюсер Фрэнк Феррел. Под редакцией Джули Эдди. Отрывок из Архива Массачусетского Народного Искусства.

Джо Дерран, сын ирландских эмигрантов, широко известен как один из лучших исполнителей ирландской народной музыки. В своей молодости от был ведущим музыкантом ирландских танцевальный залов, игра в которых привела его в конце 1940-х к радиоэфирам и изданию собственных записей. Люди восхищались его живой, техничной и виртуозной игрой изобилующей множеством украшений.

К концу 1950-х годов ирландские танцплощадки стали закрываться, поэтому Дерран перешел клавишный аккордеон и сформировал группу, чтобы играть для проведения свадеб и банкетов, отходя от ирландской музыки. Он ушел из музыки в 1990 году.

В 1993 году Rego Records переиздала некоторые из оригинальных виниловых записей Джо Деррана от 1940-х годов на компакт-диске, "Ирландский аккордеон". Эти записи вызвали значительный интерес, и Дерран снова начал играть на баяне и был приглашен выступить в качестве специального гостя на 1994 Ирландском Фолк Фестивале в Вашингтоне, округ Колумбия.

Его виртуозные выступления (в сопровождении Феликса Долан на фортепиано) были встречены с бешеным энтузиазмом и успехом у публики, и Джо Дерран начал вторую карьеру в качестве кнопочного аккордеониста. Впоследствии он записал два сольных альбома, "Give Us Another " (1994) и "Grove Lane" (2010), а также четыре ансамблевых альбома с другими исполнителями, появлялся на радио и телевидении много раз, в том числе в программе "The Pure Drop" на ирландском ТВ RTE.

В 1998 году Джо Дерран был введен в Зал славы Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann за его вклад в развитие ирландской традиционной музыки.

Джо Дерран стал дедушкой и умер 22 июля 2016 года в Рандольфе, штат Массачусетс, в возрасте 86 лет.

Finnish accordionist Mika Väyrynen concludes Summer Concert Season

Mika Väyrynen, Jörg Widmann & Dima Slobodeniuk
Mika Väyrynen Jaana Haanterä, widow of Jouni KaipainenFinnish accordionist Mika Väyrynen recently made his debut performance at one of Finland's most prestigious music festivals called ‘Porvoon Suvisoitto’. Organized by the Avanti! Chamber Orchestra in Porvoo, the festival attracts interest from renowned musicians and composers.

After composer Jouni Kaipainen's passing (1956-2015) last November, Mika was invited to perform his very demanding solo work ‘Placido Op. 68’ (dedicated to Mika Väyrynen) on a concert in his memory on June 30th. The widow of Jouni Kaipainen, herself a skilled violinist attended the concert. Picture right with Mika. Mika also performed Mussorgsky´s complete ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’.

Picture above: Mika Väyrynen, composer Jörg Widmann and conductor Dima Slobodeniuk right before performance of Widmann´s work "Armonica" at Porvoo.
 
On July 1st Mika performed the accordion part of German composer Jörg Widmann´s ‘Armonica’ with the Avanti! Chamber Orchestra, under the direction of Dima Slobodeniuk. It was first time this piece was performed in Finland and the concert was live broadcast on the Finnish National Radio YLE. The composer himself was in attendance.
 
On July 5th Mika performed in the eastern Finnish city of Juuka. Performing a full solo recital, it was especially meaningful to Mika considering eight generations of his ancestors were born and lived in this area of Finland, providing an excellent opportunity to meet many relatives.
  
Mika's last performance of his busy concert season took place in Savukoski, Lapland, and proved to be one of Mika's more interesting performances of his career. Located approximately 1000km north of Helsinki, Savukoski is known to be the area in Finland which has smallest density of human population in the country, just 0.17 persons per square km. 

Already planning to travel there on vacation, Mika was invited to perform there for local people. What is considered the first ever classical accordion performance in this region, on July 10th Mika performed in the living room of a private house to people from around the area gathered to listen. Mika reports that the response was as warm as found in the large concert halls and people obviously got a lot from his playing. With the belief that performing in smaller and isolated areas is also part of artists work, Mika embraced this unique opportunity and it proved an interesting way to end his concert season.

Picture below: View from Lappland, Savukoski. 15 km straight road in the middle of nowhere! Mika played precisely in the spot where this photo is taken - there is a house on the right.

Classic Kyiv Duo @ Stockport Accordion Club, Cheshire – UK

Classic Kyiv Duo
What a great night our Club Night concert on July 20th turned out to be. We had a large audience, a great atmosphere, and it was good to see Stefan Andrusyschyn turn up in support of our guests, the Classic Kyiv Duo - Igor Sayenko and Oleksiy Kolomoiets. The Stockport AC Band (MD Derek Stubbs) opened the concert in style with the ‘Eurovision March’ (‘Te Deum’, by Charpentier), ‘Amapola’, and Ravel’s ‘Bolero’. Helen Rich followed with two excellent solos, ‘I Don't Care’ polka (Guido Deiro) and ‘Olive Blossoms’ (Pietro Frosini). The Classic Kyiv Duo, on tour from the Ukraine, then came on stage for their first set, which was the whole of Vivaldi’s ‘Four Seasons’. This was a fantastic performance full of dynamics and sensitivity, creating the sound of a large orchestra from just two accordions. During the interval, lots of the duo’s CDs were sold.

The Stockport AC Orchestra (MD Brian Jenkins) opened the second half, with impressive performances of the ‘Orfeo March’, ‘Moon River’, and ‘Instant Concert’. The Classic Kyiv Duo then returned for their second set, featuring ‘Nimrod’ and ‘Salut d'Amour’ (Edward Elgar), ‘Palladio’ (Karl Jenkins), ‘Cats Fantasy’ (Lloyd-Webber), ‘Maxwell's Silver Hammer’ (Lennon-McCartney), and some traditional Ukrainian folk music, finishing with the ‘Flight of the Bumble Bee’, and their fingers played at a bewildering speed that must have reached ‘warp factor one’! As an encore they played a thrilling Carmen selection, after which they received a standing ovation. This really was an evening of accordion music to rival anything anywhere! The organiser of this concert was Walter Perrie, who was the MC for the evening.
