What is (Classical) Bandoneon ...
Bandoneon is a musical instrument that was born as a portable organ in Germany around 1840, but it seems that it was rarely used for that purpose.It met Argentine in Argentina around 1890, and it was mostly used outside Tango until today. It is not used as a solo instrument.
However, it is one of the instruments that can be treated as melody instruments, accompaniment instruments, and solo instruments such as pianos, and the possibilities are still being pursued.
The classical bandoneon is a bandoneon in classical music. Like Barletta, in my case, I thought of bandoneon as a solo instrument, so to speak, like solo, accompaniment or chamber music. It is called classical band neon in the sense of the instrument used. Unlike the tango, the playing style of the instrument itself was devised and developed to the fullest by Mr. Barletta.
