Gregori Matusewitch

Profile:
Gregory Matusewitch (nee Grigori Matusewicz) was born in 1886 in Minsk, Russia. He was one of nine sons father by Hyman Matusewicz, owner of a large house-furnishing shop in Belorussia. Gregory Matusewitch, along with his sons Boris Matusewitch and Sergei, established a musical tradition on the classical concertina and accordion in the U.S. which continues to this day. Indeed, as one author has pointed-out, "the Matusewitch name is literally synonymous with the concertina in America." (Thomas Gabriel, "The Russian Virtuosi in America: An Interview with Sergei Matusewitch,"Concertina & Squeezebox, Issue No. 21, 1989, p. 4.)
