Just been listening to a cylinder recording of Piroshnikoff .Sounds like an English he is playing in very similar style to Gregory Matusewitch

Anybody know who he was?

I went to see if I can find anything in Russian.

Indeed, I found this address: http://berkovich-zametki.com/Nomer47/Janovskaja1.htm

Where it says: "A musician from Russian Itzhak Pirozhnikov introduced young Tel-Aviv to important for music teachers instrument - Concertina, a variation of..."

Unfortunately when I went to the site, nothing about Pirozhnikov could be found. An article is available in English, just click on "translate".

I sent email to them with the inquiry but I'm sure there are more professional searchers among concertina players, who can dig into this info and find more.

P.S.

Pirozhnikov means loosely "Bakerson".

Many thanks for your efforts. It may be that he followed the same route as Raphael to appear on American Music Hall. His recording is amongst Alexander Prince archives on Cylinder- USA site

If you search on cnet, there was a previous thread on which he was mentioned here http://www.concertin...h=1entry94827

 

He was cited as an American musician of Russian origin. ... which sounds along your line of thinking Al.

Thank you very much for that URL link to the article about Пирожников. I found it fascinating. Seems to me he should be better known for his many accomplishments.
