Since its invention in Vienna in 1829, the accordion has undergone an enormous metamorphosis. It is actually an almost unbelievable story, from the classical accompanying instrument for songs and marches at that time to the solo instrument in many concert halls across the globe. However, this variety of possibilities is still only apparent to a very small audience today.
Johannes Münzner studied classical accordion at the Franz Schubert Conservatory in Vienna. In his concerts he always focuses on the multifaceted presentation of the bayan, as the special Russian construction of this instrument with buttons on both sides is called. Thus this instrument in the guise of a piece by J.S. Bach sounds like an organ to sound like a horn quartet in a slow movement by Mozart. Transcriptions are almost obligatory for every accordionist due to the very modest age of the instrument. However, more and more original compositions are being written that reveal an enormous range of musical content - performed and explained by Johannes Münzner.
