Demonstration Tunes Question

Many of the accordions up for sale on line at The Accordion Shop in the UK are demonstrated with a 1 minute play by one of the salesmen. They usually use the same music comprising 3 different tunes played in 3 different registrations. I can identify the first one as being the main theme from Light and Shadow waltz but does anyone know where the other two tunes come from?

See link below for typical example:

Thanks for the above.
Also I wondered what registrations are being demonstrated? Obviously the Atholl Highlanders is demonstrating musette but what about the other two?

Maybe this thread could be used as the basis for a future competition along the lines of "Suppose you are a salesman at The Accordion Shop and the boss has asked you to play a 1 minute sequence of 3 tunes that best demonstrate the versatility of your accordion. Please submit your video clip during the month of Septober". Note: 1 minute is the maximum time allowed and the example given is exactly 1 minute.

Just a thought Knobby.
