This is a well-known violin showpiece (and actually not insanely difficult - it's challenging, but has a great bang-for-buck ratio as gratuitously flashy violin music goes). This is the first time I've heard an arrangement for solo accordion:


The featured attraction, Basha Slavinska, has several other fine recordings on youtube.

Here is the original version for violin and orchestra for anyone who wants to compare:

Very nice performance.
Does not look all that easy to me with all that ornamentation.
Challenging then I guess as you say.

Here we go again - lost me down another "rabbit hole" of total fascination of such pure artistry.
Watching a few other of her videos leaves me in absolute awe of such musicianship.
