Deutsches Bandoneon – German Bandoneon

Deutsches Bandoneon  (English text s. below)

Was wäre der Tango ohne das Bandoneon? Das Instrument kam mit den deutschen Einwanderern an den Río de la Plata. Erfinder des Bandoneons ist Heinrich Band (1821-1860), der in Krefeld ein Musikaliengeschäft hatte. Er konstruierte 1848 aus einem Akkordion das Bandonion, das später “Bandoneón” genannt wurde. Band erweiterte nach und nach den Tonumfang und produzierte die Instrumente in Serie. Und so gelangte das Bandoneon um 1900 auch nach Buenos Aires und Montevideo (Uruguay).
