I have heard today that Alexander Savastian died suddenly at age of 41! Another great musician gone at very early age.
He is an accordion virtuoso - just listen to this rendition of Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565. Amazing sound and technique!
He was member of Quartetto Gelato as well!

That's too young for anybody ... he was marvellous on the accordion. I'm a classical listener, but never encountered his music before. Thanks for sharing.

Out of respect for the deceased, please correct the spelling of "peace".

I was very impressed by that video and others I found on You Tube.
It figures, a great Canadian talent that I had never heard-of, very close-by.
I went to Amazon last night and scooped-up two Analekta CDs (very good quality recordings) before the very limited supply disappears.
Thanks for posting.

Corrected, thanks for pointing it out!

Hope that you listened to some music of his.
