    It is Bach fugue from Toccata and fugue in d-minor. Try to avoid looking at video so you can make a guess

    I knew it after the first few notes - although the fact that it was you who posted it probably made it easier! (I think you have posted this very same video before, too.)

    Thanks for sharing. This reminds me of my trip to Kracow, Poland in July 2005 and I saw a street performer play this on the same instrument on the North side of Cloth Hall. The next day there was a trio playing more Bach. I was just as impressed then.

    The player from the link is very good (unlike his father alexander playing mayonesato-articulation flight of the bumble bee on you tube.)


    I am finishing music academy with that instrument and I will hopefully go to postgraduate studies at Sibelius Academy.

    Less known is that Mtislav Rhostropovich himself was impressed with the classical accordion and he sponsored one young Russian player...

    Accordion is too known only for folk or entertaining music. Actually this instrument is so different is not really an accordion anymore.
    I currently play Bach's Passacaglia and fugue in c-minor BWV 582 on it for my academy graduation but I am still way too much perfectionist to post it on you tube. I will post it when I will have recital in one church in Milano (soon) if it will be enough good for my taste

    Without even hearing the clip, I knew it was organ. That's the most famous piece for organ that Bach wrote.
