New Zealand Historical Recordings Series


About New Zealand Historical Recordings Series

The New Zealand Accordion Association Inc (NZAA) has a project in support of the Dargaville Museum 'Accordion Gems  ...A Master Collection of Accordions through Time' ...  This major accordion display was initiated by our NZAA Life Member Kevin Friedrich.

The NZAA project is to find all the old historic recordings of accordion performance. Many of these performances were recorded in high quality for National Broadcast Radio or on LP or EP's.  The NZAA project is to remaster these historic recordings to modern digital files, able to be played as CD's.

Gary Daverne has already remastered some of them for the NZAA, to be ready in time for the NZAA 40th Anniversary Celebrations, 4th and 5th June 2011. Gary Daverne has been of invaluable assistance in this remastering of these old recordings and we thank him for his greatly appreciated help.

The results are very good quality, so much so, that the decision has been made to re-release these recordings on the MusicForAccordion.com website as well as to have them form part of the Dargaville Museum accordion history display.
