david fabre Posted November 2, 2020 Share Posted November 2, 2020 (edited) Hello all, First, "Hi I'm back !" Some time ago I was a regular poster on this forum, but I realize it's been 6 years since I last posted something. I saw a lot of new names here. Hello all ! I hope someone still reminds me among the "vintage" members... Last thread I started here was to advertize the construction of a very, very special instrument : a Levitina built by Emmanuel Pariselle ! This is actually a hybrid instrument, with the shape of a bandoneon, the sound of a two-voice octave-tuned accordeon, the layout of an anglo concertina. I beleive Emmanuel only build two of these, the first was designed specially for Bertram Levy (hence the name), and I am the proud owner of the second one. For some reasons at the time the instrument arrived i was not able to devote it all it deserved so it remained underexploited for years. I'm now back to seriously work with it. Here is a first video I recorded. This is a lovely mazurka from SW france called "fin d'estiu". I beleive it was composed by Pierre Vieussens, a local musician from Toulouse. -- For memory, the "old" thread advertizing the construction of the instrument. After all these years I beleive it makes sense to start a new one. Edited November 2, 2020 by david fabre missed something 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
