  1. Re: Early mandolin recordings / Correcting Wikipedia

    I was trying to edit it. The third one is correct.
  2. Re: Early mandolin recordings / Correcting Wikipedia

    The name was given as Guido Volpe in the Grammophone Labelography, but Ugo Orlandi had already told me a few months ago that Gennaro was the correct name, and I had corrected it on my website 2...

    Re: Italian Bowl back case

    Just reviving this thread for a minute. The cost of almost everything, musical or not, seems to be going up, but I just happened to check on the GEWA cases, yesterday, and the price has gone DOWN!...

    Re: Carlo de Filippis recording

    Their quartet recorded for Victor as the Athenian Mandolin Quartet, and for Edison as the Alessios - De Filippis Mandolin Quartet. The personnel included Elias Alessios and Carlo De Filippis on...
  7. Re: Seeking music by S. Seth Weeks & other Black mandolinists

    I have found one of the Weeks pieces and copied 3 more while I was at the Lbirary of Congress, last week. First, an easy ensemble piece, Passing Guard March, for 1st and 2nd mandolins, mandola, and...

    Re: Vinyl, anyone?

    I'm leaving my mandolin 78s to the Library of Congress, as I have hundreds that they don't have. I'm pretty sure they have all of my LPs, though.

    Cylinder Recording by Silvio Ranieri

    There have been posts here before about mandolin recordings in the UCSB Cylinder Archive, but when I checked a few months ago, I saw that they had a "new" one that hadn't been transferred, yet:...

    Re: Musical Scrapbook from the Golden Age

    Well, it was fine a few hours ago, but now I can't either. May be heavy traffic from downloading this file.

    Re: Old photo(s) with mandolin

    This is one of my favorites. It looks like a prayer to the mandolin gods!

    Musical Scrapbook from the Golden Age

    Many years ago, I bought this scrapbook on eBay of musical brochures and concert programs, most of which are for mandolin or other plucked instruments. A few months ago I scanned it (to try out my...

    Re: looking for ride-shares for CMSA 2022

    I will be driving from the Washington, DC area, and am looking for someone to help with driving and chip in for gas.
  14. Re: Early mandolin recordings / Correcting Wikipedia

    I hadn't posted any new recordings for a while, as I sort of went overboard when I first started, but I did put up a new one.

    Kurt Jackisch is one of the very few German mandolin soloists in my...
  15. Re: Luthier for Fouchetti-period mandoline? Or Bortolazzi style?

    $500 is more than I would pay for ANY book, and even the "discounted" Amazon price of $297.50 is too much (and they don't have any, anyway, even at that price). I managed to find a used copy for $73,...
  16. Re: Luthier for Fouchetti-period mandoline? Or Bortolazzi style?

    I'm reviving an old thread. Does anyone know where I can find drawings of an 18th century Neapolitan mandolin? In particular, I am interested in how the soundboard was braced.

    Re: Italian Bowl back case

    The case was wider than necessary for my Calace, but just THIS MORNING, I dropped the instrument (and the case) off to be repaired, so I can't measure it, now. My American bowlback is 8" wide and...
  18. Re: Building a Mandolino Bresciano in 40 pictures

    Beautiful work, looking forward to hearing it!
  19. Re: Early mandolin recordings / Correcting Wikipedia

    I put up 3 nice ensemble recordings over the weekend. This first recording was made in New York in 1908, but the group may have been from Mexico or South America. One catalog referred to them as an...

    Hi, I put up 2 more recordings over the weekend. First, an Italian player living in New York:

  21. Re: Early mandolin recordings / Correcting Wikipedia

    I own one cylinder from 1899, but this is the oldest disc in my collection. Signor Fantoni recorded 22 records for Berliner from 1899-1902, but this is one of only two that he recorded with mandolin...
  22. Re: Early mandolin recordings / Correcting Wikipedia

    I got 4 more recordings up yesterday, including a couple for mandolin orchestra. This first one was recorded in Milano in 1918:

    Re: Milanese / Lombardic mandolin

    I have already posted this recording in another thread, but thought I would post it again here, as Alfieri was playing a Milanese mandolin with 6 single strings. Tremolo on one string sounds...
  24. Re: Early mandolin recordings / Correcting Wikipedia

    Yes, I bought that one, too. Any Google searches just bring me back to the records I already bought!

    Again, I have no information about this recording, except that I found it for sale. I collect primarily instrumental recordings, but a 111 year old...
