    Building Hayden Duett

    Thank you Lukasz. I wish you the best for this project because I think that the Wicky keyboard is very intuitive and logical, and deserves more interest from musicians and concertinas makers. There is still a lot to explore and to improve with this keyboard. And I hope to have a chance to try your instrument when it will be completed. Didie

    Building Hayden Duett

    Great! how many buttons will have your instrument and did you choose to make it with the Hayden's slant or not?

    Thank you Steve and Riton! In a different style I've just posted another minuet in the thread "Playing with Anna Magdalena".

    Playing with Anna Magdalena

    It will take some more time before I can play Invention Nr 8 but here is another minuet from the Notebook for Anna Magdalena:

    Modern Times ending

    Very beautiful! Is it possible to find the sheet music for that tune?

    Name of this tune from the Hebrides?

    Thank you John, Rüdiger and Wolf for the very interesting analysis. When I first listened to this tune I felt that it was the kind of perfect melodic line that popular tradition can create after decades and maybe centuries of folk process. It's the reason why I was surprised and a little disappointed to discover that it was maybe just a wrong transcription. Didie

    Merci Dee! De rien, c'est un plaisir. I have seen in another thread that you are interested in klezmer music and I think that it would be also nice to hear more klezmer music on the Hayden duet. Didie

    Thank you Israel, I can't wait to listen to your new Hayden duet made by Alex Holden and it's nice that a young concertina maker is also interested in this instrument.

    Thank you David, I hope to listen soon to your new recordings as well because it's always a good inspiration and encouragement for Hayden duet players.

    This tune has been composed by Lydie Auvray, a french accordionist living and mostly playing in Germany. It's quite popular among tango dancers in Paris. The video is directly inspired by german concertinist Musik Böhmer and his concertina from hell:

    Playing with Anna Magdalena

    Thank you Riton to open my eyes ans my ears on this beautiful piece. I will put it on my to play list, but before I've already 2 other minuets on my gas cooker and I'm now struggling with the Invention Nr 8, as well as some tangos. Did you try to play "Schaffs mit mir" on your anglo?

    Playing with Anna Magdalena

    Thank you for your interest Aldon. The instrument that I'm playing isn't an Elise but a 52 buttons Beaumont. For this kind of tune I just need to make some octave transpositions at some places when I don't have enough range but not so much. Maybe on an Elise you would have to adapt the score a little more.

    One More Roslin Castle

    Thank you Little John, very nice and soulful version. Maybe simple is the best for this kind of tune... Didie
