Hello accordion friends!

Our Webmaster and member Oliver O`Connor have done and does a fantastic job with Our member site is now steadily evolving to adapt to tomorrow´s demands for information about the accordion history.
Pietro Frosini is the greatest and first composer of all time to write classical music for accordion. It will be interesting to see and hear who will be the first in the World to perform Frosini´s music on an accordion with melody bass.
With melody bass you construct the chords in the base yourself and lay the foundation
in the right octave. Frosini used fingers 2, 3 and 4 for chord basses and the little finger for basic basses.
Today, the Frosini music is usually played with Stradella bass, which is a system where all chords are completed under buttons and the basic bass scope is only within one octave. To perform the Frosini music plus all other music on accordion, the correct bellows must be used. It can be compared to a string instrument that, without the proper string guidance, never makes it sound good.
As a member of the Frosini Society, you support our work on preserving and informing about the importance of Frosini music for tomorrow´s practitioners.
I have heard that within the Society in Europa there is a member who plans to record all Frosini´s Rhapsodies, Fantasies and Overtures. Will return when I find out more.
We have now published the newly written Frosini book in English as an e-book (English page) which can be easily downloaded at a cost of € 10.

The Swedish Frosiniboken is still available in a limited number and can be purchased
for SEK 99 plus postage / packaging.
Orders are made via
In order to print a small edition of the English version of the Frosiniboken we need to get about 300ex in advance orders.

Wishing you all a happy 2020 with many musical notes!
Lars Ek
With Best Regards
