    A lovely composition played with outstanding skill on an instrument with a beautiful, subtle voice makes a great way to start the new year—many thanks!

    I am smitten by that mandocello tone. The piece and the playing are nice also.

    Beautiful playing and composition. The tone of that instrument is fantastic and really used to its advantage here. Happy to know about Luke William Wright, I will be looking for more of his music.

    Luke is one of the players and composers that contributed to my mandocello meets at CMSA conventions. His music and his playing are creative, nimble, and beautiful. He puts to rest the argument I hear so often (in the CBOM thread) that the mandocello is too difficult to play, the C string is too heavy, get an octave instead...etc. My teacher Fabio Giudice says that most people playing the MCello are mandolin players who picked it up for ensemble work, to fill out the quartet or orchestra. Luke is clearly a master of the instrument on its own terms, and is creating more music specifically for it; glad he is getting this recognition.

    Really great playing by Luke, he has a lot of great solo mandocello videos out there.

    That's splendid playing. Luke makes it look easy. That's the mark of a real master. And the tone isn't just the instrument, I also play a Duff and, even though it's a fantastic instrument, I don't sound half so good.
