Another two performances of Flashing

It seems to be accordionist season. I have found two uploads of Arne Nordheim's Flashing from the last two weeks. So far I've heard five performances of the piece this year. It seems to really have become central to the contemporary accordion repertoire. The level of both performances are stunning!

First out is the Russian (?) Arseniy Strokovskiy, a very sharp and virtuosic performance.

Next is the Serbian Palágyi Krisztián. Maybe not as clean-cut as Strokovskiy, but with plenty more pathos, something that fits the piece well. The performance is a part of a very nice collection of contemporary accordion-works, found on his channel.

I have added both videos to my list of Arne Nordheim live performances on Youtube. The list now contains 10 versions of Flashing!
