Something amazing you should see.

When I was on my mission in Ukraine, I saw a lot of accordion played in the streets and on subway trains.  I found a video of a kid playing accordion on my cousin’s facebook and was amazed.  When I looked up his channel on YouTube I found out that he is Ukrainian. Boo yeah. His repertoire ranges from Tchaikovsky to Vivaldi to Bach. If you need help translating any of the Russian let me know…he’s got quite a few pieces posted on his site. But here is a sampling.

Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons” Summer


Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto


Makes you not hate the accordion so much, eh? I always kind of liked it, but now I’m a little obsessed!
