"Instructions for use":

This discography is intended to serve several purposes:

  • it shall give a comprehensive overview of recordings with more than a hint of diatonic accordion
  • it shall be a starting point for more information about the artists and the records
Therefore the discography is extensively linked: links with the artist lead to the respective homepages or pages about the artist (or group), links with the record number give more information about the record. I have tried to find as many links as possible to sites with music. These links are marked with a little notesymbol .

The discography is roughly arranged according to the country of the artist going hand in hand (in most cases) with the music played. Within the country the arrangement is in alphabetical order. Links within this page (e.g. if an artist who has a solo recording also plays with a group) are marked wtih this symbol .

Since the discography is one file you can search using Ctrl + F (at least with Navigator and Internet explorer).

Have fun and please report dead links to christoph.zeiler@gmx.net

  • Self-Contained (Dog Rose Sound CECD002)

    arrangements of English, Irish, Swedish, Bulgarian, Hungarian and American folk tunes, themes by Chopin and Haydn and a selfcomposed tune all played in a highly individual style with lots of polyphony and some pieces with a fair amount of chromaticism, all done one a 2-row/8 bass diatonic without multitracking. Things you never would have thought to be possible on a humble 2-row.
