Accordion Noir radio playlist 2013-01-30: Winds, Keys and Strings with the Thin Edge New Music Collective

February 6, 2023


Ten years ago, for episode 322 of CFRO Co-Op Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir broadcast, we were treated to a visit by the Thin Edge New Music Collective, featuring accordionist Olivia Steimel, promoting a performance including music composed by Anna Pidgorna, who we had met a couple of years previously trying to get the word out to recover an accordion in her custody that had been stolen.  (You can hear more of her work since then in the free-reed space here and here.  Hey, Bruce, we should get some of this on the program!  She also has been exhaustively boosting fundraising efforts for Ukrainian resistance to the Russian invasion, but I digress.)  If you missed it the first time around or your memory of the broadcast has grown faded, you can enjoy a refresher and listen to the episode as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist: 

* Composer, Anna Pidgorna; Olivia Steimel, acc. – Light-play through curtain holes-June 9 – Winds, Keys & Strings – Germany, Canada –

* Bagatellen pt 1-4 Olivia Steimel, acc. Cheryl Duvall, piano

* Cloud Patterns, Olivia Steimel, acc.

* Archipelago – Archipelago – Archipelago (2001) – William Schimmell, acc

* Marin Nasturica, Sonata Quintette, Ho Thi The Van (Piano) – Concerto En Re Mineur – Nasturica Virtuoso (1995) – Romania / Montréal, Québec, Canada

Thanks for reading us here (and hopefully listening to us, there), but if you find you want more, you can always keep up with us on … well, we’re putting our Twitter on the back burner indefinitely in pursuit of sunnier pastures, such as Mastodon at and, Instagram (@AccordionNoirFest), and Facebook at Accordion Noir fansthe Accordion Noir Festival, and the Vancouver Squeezebox Circle.  Cheers & squeeze on!
