1931 Video recording of Grock playing concertina

Recommended Posts

At first I thought it wasn't actually him playing, because his movements didn't match the music. Then I realized that the sound in the video is out of synch with the film by a second or so.


Wonderful stuff!

(Wish I understood French.)


One funny moment is when the man in full dress gives his metal clarinet to Grock. Grock tells him that he has also a clarinet, but that his one is wooden. The man replies that this one is made of silver, of pure silver. Grock asks him : "Even the holes ?" and the man says yes !
