Boris Kovačič wrote countless unique songs that were recorded by Ansambel Borisa Kovačiča along with his wife, iconic singer Stanka Kovačič and son Matej Kovačič from the 1960s through to the 1980s.

Gretl Boarischer (Traditional Austrian song) [Sheet music] [Tutorial video] [Play-along audio] [Play-along video]

‘Gretl Boarischer’ is a popular Austrian traditional instrumental, commonly played on the diatonic button accordion (Steirische harmonika) but is fun to play on piano or chromatic accordion as well. It’s most commonly played in Eb, so I’ve arranged sheets in Eb as well as F.

Boris Frank – Ali že igraš #1 [Book scan]

In the 1960s-1970s several editions of sheet music books with Boris Frank’s compositions with lyrics were published under the title “Ali že igraš” (Are you already playing). Boris Frank was a popular name in the early days of Oberkrainer music in Slovenia in the 1950s-1960s. One of the few books that I have in my possession is a 1st edition which contains the songs “Razgrajači“, “Če Te Srce Boli“, “Rdeči Nageljni“, “Stari In Novi Prijatelji“. All songs were released onto albums by Boris Frank s Svojimi Kranjci (Boris Frank und seine Fidelen Oberkrainer).

Tam kjer murke cveto – Dort wo das Edelweiss blüht (V. & S. Avsenik) [Sheet music] [Tutorial video] [Play-along audio] [Play-along video]

“Tam kjer murke cveto” was released on Avsenik’s first Slovenian LP record of the same name and is one of Avsenik’s most famous waltzes which instantly became a hit with Slovenians around the world. In English it translates to “Where the Murka flower blooms” which refers to the Slovenian Murka flower.
