Ludovic Beier

Post by mitchnc » Wed Sep 12, 2018 5:37 pm

Does anyone know where I can find more videos of him playing?
YouTube doesn't have many. I love watching him play. Very inspiring.

Any other CBA players you enjoy watching?

It's a shame that when you search for anything related to the accordion on YouTube, you have to wade through hundreds of "for sale" videos by Liberty Bellows.

Good listening.

[[[It's a shame that when you search for anything related to the accordion on YouTube, you have to wade through hundreds of "for sale" videos by Liberty Bellows.]]]

I must say I'm at a loss regarding this assertion. The only time I encounter Liberty Bellows clips on Youtube is when I keyword-search accordion makes/models I wish to check out, and I'm grateful to them for posting these clips and leaving them up there for people to check out and enjoy. Seems to me they're performing a public service. In addition to which, a goodly percentage of their demo players are fantastic and play wonderful stuff that I like.

There are bazillions of incredible CBA players on the 'tube.

Ludovic Beier features in several Roland demo videos.
When you like his jazz music he is very enjoyable to watch and listen to.
He also has a whole CD where he plays the accordina (I have it and it is great) but of course no video there...

I have a question:

Has Ludovic Beier ever played with Richard Galliano?

If so, was a recording or video made of the performance?

Thanks.

I forgot about Samuel Garcia. He's also amazing.

Seconded Terry,

Samuel Garcia just seemed to appear when he was doing demos of Rolands. I had never heard of him until I saw him on such a demo. I see he's gone for a very nice Victoria box these days. Seems to be the case that some French players are keen to lose that "French accent" when playing other music. Found this Latin number and I've no idea what type of box he's using, although it could be the Victoria. He doesn't seem to care much for musette stuff and you can tell that when he plays it. Personally, I couldn't care less what the material is, he's one heck of a player!

Old Blood. Sorry about sound quality in first clip, but some players were doing great things on the box way back then. Lucien Attard, one of the lesser known "French" accordion stars from Algeria. Almost everything he played was a bit out of the ordinary, but it made a change from the old musette standards. ,

Julian Labro is another accordina player who you might like.
...
Great player.
I just don't like the sight of the accordina with the mouthpiece at the end (rather than on he side)... but it does not affect the sound.

Re: Samuel Garcia - just read he toured with Aznavour (RIP) for about ten years.
There seems to be so many great players who few people know about.

Paul, Here is an older performance where he plays an instrument with the mouthpiece on the side.

That's the way I like it! I do hold the accordina (with the left hand) differently but have often seen it being held the way Labro does it. (Galliano holds it the same way.) I kinda "cup" it so it sits more on top of my left hand. That way it feels like I am presenting it to the audience more and it doesn't feel like I'm holding it like a baguette...
