The accordion is the most recently developed Western acoustic musical instrument. A very versatile instrument, both in terms of its repertoire and the role it can play (accompanying or solo). Original compositions that make optimal use of the accordion come exclusively from the 20th and 21st century. More and more contemporary composers are discovering the many possibilities of the instrument
As an accordionist, I can offer you the following programs:
- Program 'Dutch Touch
In the Dutch Touch programme, new Dutch compositions are played with supporting film footage by video artist Roger Muskee. In this performance are played a.o: VE-Dances by Renske Vrolijk, 'without title' by Joost van Balkom, Detecting Mr. Brown by Arnold Veeman.
Contemporary classical solo programme (classical accordion)
- Dutch compositions (a.o. VE-Dances by Renske Vrolijk, untitled by Joost van Balkom, Detecting Mr. Brown by Arnold Veeman, compositions by Jacob ter Veldhuis, Ton de Leeuw, Dolf de Kinkelder)
- Japanese compositions (Toshio Hosokawa, Yuji Takahashi)
- German and Scandinavian compositions
If desired, the contemporary programme can be combined with works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Domenico Scarlatti and Astor Piazzolla, among others.
Gertie Bruin started playing the accordion at the age of 7. He studied classical accordion at the conservatory and obtained the diplomas Teaching Musician and Performing Musician at the Enschede Conservatory with Egbert Spelde in 1995 and 1997 respectively. During his studies he followed master classes with several pioneers in the field of accordion, including Mogens Ellegaard and Mie Miki. In the meantime he had also started to study Theory of Music, which he completed in 1999 at the conservatory of Groningen with Johan de With. Gertie Bruin teaches accordion at various music schools.
