Moje sanje, sanje najine (B. Kovačič) [Sheet music]

This is a beautiful waltz by legendary Slovenian composer Boris Kovačič, sung by his wife Stanka Kovačič in the 1960s and covered several times by Slovenian popular-folk (Oberkrainer) ensembles. The title translates to “My dream, our dream” and sings of two people in love, who dreamed together every night when they first met, and continue to share dreams and wishes throughout their lives. Stanka Kovačič is known for her exceptionally gentle, beautiful voice, which was perfectly paired together with Trio Vital Ahačič’s warm accompaniment, beautiful lyrics, and Boris Kovačič’s beautiful compositions and arrangements.

Harmonika Hans’l (Austrian folk song) [Sheet music]

“Harmonika Hans’l” is a traditional Austrian waltz (from the context of existing recordings I’m assuming it’s from Austria) of unknown origin and has been recorded several times by different Austrian folk music groups, primarily traditional folk music rather than the Oberkrainer style, and on the Steirische Harmonika (Styrian or Alpine button accordion), however it was also recorded by a little known Oberkrainer style group presumably from Austria or Germany called “Marburger Quintett” (named after Slovenian city, Maribor) in the 1980s in the style of a Slovenian/Oberkrainer trio, on piano accordion, possibly by Oberkrainer accordion icon, Sandi Jug. I couldn’t find much else on this song, but I thought it’s a

Mavrica čez Gorenjsko – Regenbogen über Oberkrain (V. & S. Avsenik) [Sheet music]

This is one of the Avsenik brothers’ most popular instrumental waltzes, Mavrica čez Gorenjsko (in Slovenian) or Regenbogen über Oberkrain (in German) which in both languages translate to “Rainbow over Gorenjska” (the Gorenjska or in English, Upper Carniola region of Slovenia). It first appeared on Ansambel bratov Avsenik’s Slovenian 1969 LP “Odmev s Triglava” (Echo from Triglav; Triglav being Slovenia’s highest mountain). That album is one of Avsenik’s most important, as it features many songs which have become Avsenik’s most played and listened, including Drija Drajsom Polka (Wigel Wogel Polka), Mavrica Čez Gorenjsko (Regenbogen über Oberkrain), Veter Nosi Pesem Mojo (Der wind bringt dir mein Lied; which was performed at

Srečno otroštvo (R. Smolnikar) [Sheet music] [Accompaniment track]

This waltz titled “Srečno otroštvo” means “Happy childhood” and was written by Robert Smolnikar, a highly regarded Slovenian accordionist who performed in one of Slovenia’s highest calibre Slovenian folk-pop music and Oberkrainer style ensembles called Štajerskih 7 (which means Styrian 7, relating to the region of Slovenian Styria, not to be mistaken with the bordering Austrian region of Styria). Robert Smolnikar has composed many terrific songs including a beautiful waltz “Zapri oči” with a musette influenced accordion solo in the second part, which is so lovely to listen to, but very difficult to play. Smolnikar currently plays in his own trio, Robert Smolnikar Trio, yet his songs from his Štajerskih
