Bercandeon

Hi!
Many pianists would also like to play the accordion but they don't know to use their left hand. In this case that's your instrument!
I am writing to tell you that I and Maestro Stefano Caniato from Mantova have created a new musical instrument called Bercandeon. It has been four years since we got the idea and drew the first sketches. The instrument belongs to the wellknown tradition of Italian handicraft of strings and accordions. The firm Teknofisa from Vercelli makes extremly accurate models, all numbered by hand and, as they are handmade, they can satisfy any customer's wish.
This is the firm's website where you can find further information:
www.teknofisa.com

The Bercandeon is an aerophone, free-reed, chromatic instrument with several voices and registers.
Its ergonomics is very accurate, it has a symmetric structure (the vertical axis corresponds to the central frame to which the straps and the bellows are fixed), which allows an excellent weight distribution and free performing techniques.
Thanks to the two keyboards the musician can choose between a piano performance (considering them as a sort of single keyboard split in two) and an organ performance (with  two separated keyboards).
The name derives from the two creators: Fiorenzo Bernasconi (Ber-) and Stefano Caniato (-can-).
Best wishes.
Fiorenzo Bernasconi and Stefano Caniato cooperated on the production of the CD “Songs for Luciano”, Ducale 2003, on the book “Playing the basses! A method to accompany easily with electric bass, double bass and tuba” (with a study CD), Berben, Ancona, 2006, with the Virtualbigband (a band composed by musicians from all over the world), on the composition of some songs.
