Translation


Gellin & Borgstrom - there are hardly anyone within our borders who are not familiar with the phenomena that these two names mean. In town and country --- from the capital to the smallest village - the sound of Gellin and Borgstrøms "Haandklaver"(Accordion,(slang)) - No,--- "Haandorkester" ("Accordion Orchestra", also slang) carried the polished performers' names into the country and the people's consciousness.
The  concerts are countless, that these two "Einzige Kaiserliche Accordion-virtuoso der Welt" (Only Imperial Accordion-Virtuosos in the world)  held in their home country as well as "in der ganze Welt" (in the whole world), and countless is the music critical praise  who placed Gellin and Borgstrom as masters in their own particular field.  
No wonder, therefore, that the two sympathtic artists have played for kings and emperors and hold  "Die Grosse Goldene Hohner-Medaille" ( The Big Golden Hohner-Medal)
