This Hohner was built in 1938 and features a rather remarkable sound from those distinctive Hohner reeds. I have never heard another 1930's vintage accordion quite like this one. The tones seem to exude a ringing and innately joyous texture from the unique tuning of the reeds. My friend Jerry Sleger did extensive work on this instrument to bring it up to playable condition, including tuning of bass and treble sections, replacement of worn leather strips and re-waxing quite a few reeds where the old wax had weathered. The result is a vintage instrument which now breathes with new life and a wild sonic texture. Here I am playing the famous Classical piece by Jeremiah Clarke (1673-1707), a composition which has always been one of my favorites. The sheet music is from Volume Four of "Das Grosse Akkordeon-Buch" (Le Grand Album pour l'Accordeon), published by Edition Melodie, Anton Peterer Music & Books, Zurich, Switzerland. All of the songs in this four volume set have been collected and arranged by Herwig Peychaer.
