  1. Re: Intermezzo (from "Cavalleria Rusticana")

    Pietro Mascagni: Intermezzo, from "Cavalleria Rusticana" (1890)

    I've just recorded another version of this piece, based on the same quartet arrangement I used in 2015 but omitting the mandola part...

    Re: Elizabethan Serenade (Ronald Binge)

    An update on this one: my 2015 version is a bit slow and a bit stiff. Here is a new one, reduced from the previous quartet arrangement to only the first mandolin and guitar parts (I'm playing the...

  4. Re: East Of Eden soundtrack (L. Rosenman), for mandolin orchestra

    I first recorded this classic movie theme back in 2014. My new recording uses the same arrangement, but is I think a considerable improvement in the playing as well as the recording and balance of...
  5. Re: Romantic lieder on mandolin and piano

    Thanks, Eugene and Zachary. Yes, I seem to remember Pietrapertosa doing collections of romantic songs, but then he put his name to a lot of things. These are fun to play, anyway, and it's...
  6. Re: Mandocello solo and duo recordings playlist

    Thanks Lucinda(lin) -- mandocello is a fun instrument, and it's nice to have an alternative voice.

    Early Music for Christmas

    Here are a few 16th century Christmas tunes which I've recorded over the past few days:

    Nutmegs & Ginger (1595)

    This is a Christmas tune for six instruments for broken consort from the...

    Three more:

    César Franck (1822-1890): Panis Angelicus

  9. Romantic lieder on mandolin and piano

    One of the nice features of IMSLP is that it has the option of uploading backing tracks as well as musical scores, and there are at least two excellent pianists (Héctor Valls and Roman Richards) who...
  10. Re: Richard Strauss: Der Rosenkavalier - Waltz Theme

    I've just revisited this tune -- same arrangement as before, but simplified even further to just mandolin and mandocello (omitting the two inner voices) plus a waltz rhythm on tenor guitar.

    Re: François Menichetti 's Soir De Fete

    It's one of the newly added tunes on the revamped version of the Nakano Archive site -- somewhat difficult to locate as it's a single page in a 98-page PDF of a combined scan of multiple loose sheets...

    Re: Sonatina in G - Beethoven

    I have played a number of Andy's arrangements over the years, but have only this week had a look at this little Beethoven sonatina for the first time -- it's very nice on mandolin.

    For this...

    Re: Hornpipe in D HWV 356 by G F Handel

    I was looking through the scores at Andy's website recently and thought this Handel hornpipe looked interesting -- I didn't remember until I had finished making a new recording that I had in fact...

    Re: Bach - Gavotte from French Suite V

    Andy Boden's arrangement of this lovely Bach gavotte has been in our practice group repertoire for almost a decade now (albeit performed infrequently), so I thought it's time for a quick update...

    This is a Christmas carol written by Thomas Ravenscroft (c.1592-1635), published in his collection Melismata in 1611. My instrumental version...

    Re: My Grandmother the Mandolinist

    Great photo!

    I learned to play on the same mandolin as my grandfather and my mother, although neither of them ever became particularly good -- a 1920s or 30s German-made Majestic flattop (an...

    Re: Mandocello compositions

    Thanks, Jim. Don't get me wrong -- I like the tone of bronze wound strings, and I have them on all my instruments except the mandocello. When I got mine, it was strung with TI strings and I was...

    Re: Mandocello compositions

    Very nice pieces, Jim. Also interesting to compare tone of the various instruments. Am I right in thinking you have your K4 strung with the D'Addario mandocello set? There is a twang to the tone...

  23. Re: Mandocello solo and duo recordings playlist

    Here is another tune for my mandocello playlist.

    "Song Of The Chanter" (or "The Chanter's Tune"), Irish pipe march

    I'm playing the tune five times through on the mandocello. After the first...
  24. Re: Help with new Mandolin - Allieno Di Venaccia?

    I agree on the tone point, but I was recommending the GHS A-240 for precisely that reason: as an inexpensive test run to see whether the mandolin is actually playable. Until it has been strung up,...
  25. Re: Help with new Mandolin - Allieno Di Venaccia?

    Very interesting De Meglio clone. However, the label on the OP's mandolin doesn't say Michele Maratea, but Michele Marano (or possibly Varano -- the printer used a very abstract capital letter...
