The odd ones out2008-07-24
Today, I've added three very special tunes...
As you might have noticed, I have a weak spot for odd but beautiful tunes. That's why today, I've added three tunes that you might not expect on an English Concertina.
The first odd one out is a mazurka in G minor. Mazurkas are usually very happy tunes, but this one is very melancholic, probably a French bagpipe or hurdy gurdy tune.
The second is a well know classical menuet from J.S. Bach.
The third one is a German zwiefacher: 'Die Alte Kath'. Zwiefachers are very odd dance tunes combining two rhythms, in this case 3/4 and 2/4.
