Beltuna Polka – Blick vom Dachstein (M. Kovačič) [Sheet music]

‘Beltuna Polka’ or ‘Blick vom Dachstein’ (View from Dachstein – a mountain range in the Upper Austria, Styria and Salzburg regions of Austria) is a recent instrumental polka by Matej Kovačič, an amazing accordionist from Slovenia who has been performing since the 1980s. His parents are legendary composer/arranger Boris Kovačič and singer Stanka Kovačič, known for her gentle, beautiful voice, and songs such as ‘Prinesi mi rože‘. Matej is known for his virtuosic playing and a unique style that I believe has several influences such as Jože Burnik and Vital Ahačič, and incorporates a lot of energy into his playing. He initially recorded with his father’s ensemble in the 1980s and early 1990s, and later with Austrian ensemble “Kaiserwälder Musketiere” from the 1990s till the 2010s. Above all, his compositions are very unique and can be very technical yet joyful. I’d like to share one of his more recent instrumentals which I first heard on a video of a teacher’s concert at “Glasbena šola Grosuplje” (Music school Grosuplje) and was captivated by its fun melody and energy.
