I couldn't resist adding this item from the October 1966 ICA Newsletter that I've just scanned. Is it history? I think so!




Carnegie Recital Hall is the premier auditorium for serious music

making in the U.S.A. Here on 26th September Allan Atlas, a 23 year old

student of musicology at New York University gave a recital on his

48 key English Concertina. Allan Atlas already has his B.A.degree of

Hunter College, and his Master's Degree of New York, and that a

musician of such ability should cultivate the playing of the concertina

is a wonderful tribute to the qualities of this neglected instrument.

His programme included works by Vivaldi, Mozart, Bach and

Paganini, proving the contention that the violin works of the great

masters are ideal as concertina studies. Modernists are represented by

Bloch (1930?) and Charles Schwartz (1966), while the specifically

concertina music of Regondi was also included.

Allan Atlas is a student of Boris Matusewitch.
