5 amazing accordion videos

Since posting the last youtube video I have spent half a day watching youtube clips of accordion players. Here are the best so far.

5. Viktor Romanko play Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2
This is about how epic one can get on the accordion. I must say playing accordion and wearing a bowtie somehow looks a bit strange.

4. Ukrainian kid
You may have already seen this. A very talented performace by a young ukrainan kid. Even if I am not a fan of classical music one can't help being impressed.


3.Yann Tiersen live

Maybe not the most advanced performace but the feeling here is unbeatable. The song is great too.

2. Ivan Hajek, playing in MunichLove the feeling here. This guy plays like a madman and manages to get a huge sound of the accordion. Would love to learn to play more like this.


I am getting somewhat patriotic here since theese guys are from my home country. Still I think they are totally increadible. The crowd is also amazing. How often do you see people go crazy over instrumental accordion music? There is some talk in the beginning so fast forward to about 0.40
