[YouTube - Link]
If you are familiar with this piece performed on an organ, you may be surprised by this virtuoso performance on an accordion - especially at about the 5:40 mark.

It's amazing how one man can still inspire such hot debate and interpretation. I found an interesting discussion on Pandalous about how using the pedal can alone change so much to a Bach piece. It's here:

Very nice. The accordion, as a reed instrument, doesn't quite have the same oomph as a pipe organ, but he did a great job.

This toccata is used by organists as a fairly easy but impressive-sounding piece.

Another is Widor's Toccata. I wouldn' mind hearing him play that on his accordion.

Impressive. I had to look closely to verify he didn't have 6 fingers on each hand. If you watch his hands long enough, they start to look like 2 spiders. Kinda goes along with the creepy music portion.
