The longest marathon playing accordion is 32 hrs 14 mins 52 secs and was achieved by Cory Pesaturo (USA) at Optik Neuroth in Graz, Austria, from 4 to 5 August 2017.
Cory is a world champion accordion player for acoustic, digital and jazz accordion- the only person to ever hold all three titles. He was inspired to break the record after meeting the family of the current record holder for the longest marathon playing harp. Cory's record-breaking performance included renditions of classical compositions like Pachelbel's Canon in D alongside modern techno songs like Darude's Sandstorm.
