Hello Accordion Friends,
Now we can finally show Frosinisocietys first accordion concert from 1986 (90 minutes) at www.frosinisociety.org. A historical recording where we get to see the old Swedish accordions masters and the new generation accordionist, at that time as teenagers. To find this video you have to click on the new title: FS concerts up on the left side.
There are not many people who have seen the accordionist Sven Hylén live.
Sven Hylén (1907 - 1988) Musician (accordion). Born and raised in Hagfors, settled later in Stockholm. From the mid-1920s, and about 10 years he was the duet partner with Ragnar Sundquist. He was the first Swedish musician to render accordionist Pietro Deiro concerts as a soloist with the Radio Orchestra.
He lived his last years a retired life in Tensta, located just outside Stockholm. In this concert the audience pays tribute to Sven Hylén with a standing ovation.
