Abstract

Against the background of generally low music activity in rural Russia, the button accordion (garmon’) player Mikhail Sorochinsky from the Smolensk province (Smolenskaja oblast) lives an intensive yet solitary musical life. The paper presents Sorochinsky’s artistic development and his not always easy relation to his social and musical environment. Further, the historical background of solitary music-making is discussed as well as socially and musically meaningful emotions.

Glasbenik Mihail Soročinski iz okrožja Smolensk, ki igra na kromatično (gumbno) harmoniko (garmon’), živi zelo intenzivno, a tudi samotno glasbeno življenje, kar je v nasprotju z dejstvom, da je v ruralni skupnosti v Rusiji malo muziciranja. V članku sta predstavljena njegov umetniški razvoj in ne vedno enostavno razmerje z lastnim družbenim in glasbenim okoljem. Avtor razpravlja o zgodovinskem ozadju njegovega samohodnega muziciranja kot tudi o družbeno in glasbeno pomembnih čustvih.
