Dear M. Bruneau: I was among the many who this past weekend attended the Artists Show at the Steward Hall in Pointe-Claire where you were shining brightly in performance(s). I spoke with you briefly to tell you how taken I was by your Musette music-making, one would never hear it anywhere more authentically well-played than how you did it: wonderfully. I have now at home played your c.d. recording “MUSETTE”, with Madame Cardinal singing “Chanson douce” in the final track. The joy brought me at listening cannot be put any better in words than what I have attempted herewith. Thank you!

Thank you for those kind words Jan Willem, really appreciated.
It is not everybody that can “hear” the difference between interpretations of a specific style of music like the Parisian musette. You are among the one who can obviously.
I hope you’ll enjoy listening to my CD “Mario Bruneau Musette” and the beautiful voice of Hélène Cardinal singing the song “La chanson Douce” from Léo Ferré for many years to come.
Was nice meeting you last weekend at Stewart Hall in Pointe-Claire.
I have a bretto scandelli accordion,very old and works,bass strap is adjustable by a metal outside the unit,has on off indicator,played by my dad in big bands in Ontario and Michigan.trying to get a approximately value,he played in the 1940 and up thanks Jim
To evaluate your accordion, please send me photos.
For me, the Internet or WWWeb is an important source of music and musical information that is otherwise arcane or remote. I enjoy that people take the time to record a performance on a street corner or tiny hall in some part of the world I may never visit.
Often these recordings are so poorly recorded or the “noise” so great that little that is actually musical remains. Even people intending to demonstrate an instrument and all its virtues often neglect to set properly for sound reproduction, or do anything in post production to convey the actual auditory experience.
I must commend Mario Bruneau for paying attention to these important details in faithfully recording the musical experience he wishes to convey. The sound of his accordion, or other instrument, is rich and vibrant. His performances are polished as if the Internet audience deserves no less than the concert hall.
Thank you Mario for sharing your great reservoir of talent and knowledge with anyone in the world who might have access to the Web and a desire for an uncommon musical experience.
All the Best,
