Trije godci (R. Bardorfer) [Sheet music] [Handwritten scan]

Janez Goršič (Ansambel Rudija Bardorferja, Dobri Znanci, Ansambel Janeza Goršiča) from Slovenia was the final accordionist with Ansambel Rudija Bardorferja, after Rudi Bardorfer was exiled to Switzerland, and joined their album “Rodni Kraj” in 1973.

Janez was very kind to send me some scans of Bardorfer’s rare handwritten sheet music, and it is his wish to be shared with a wider community to enjoy.

This is a polka that I have never heard on any recording of Rudi Bardorfer’s ensemble, and am pleased to share with you Janez’s scan of this handwritten sheet. The title “Trije godci” translates to “Three musicians”.

Spet v Mengšu – Harmonikafreude (J. Burnik) [Sheet music] [Tutorial video]

This is a fun song by Jože Burnik (Slovenia) from around the 1980s which he recorded with Heimatlandecho (Austria). It particularly stands out as the original recording features 3 accordions. The Slovenian title translates to “Again in Mengeš” (name of a Slovenian town) and the German title translates to “Accordion joy”.
