    Re: Sorting out the Vinaccias

    Re: Sorting out the Vinaccias

    Going way back to mandolins of the 1700s, but today's excursion into WorldCat has produced this bit of intrigue that discusses one early effort from the Vinaccia family:...

    By Ralf Leenen and Barry Pratt. I was fortunate to score my copy directly from the authors when initially released. It's a lovely work. Ralf is active and, last I knew, responsive to...

    Re: YoYo Ma

    For what it's worth, when I listen to performances of Saint-Saëns' Le Cygne (The Swan) to inspire phrasing and pace in playing my own mandolin arrangement, I gravitate to Yo-Yo Ma's duo performances....

    Several of those Australian albums are also available at deeply discounted prices via the Berkshire Record Outlet discussed above. I'm never certain how to approach those. Those recordings tend to...

    I'm a big fan and frequent customer of Berkshire Record Outlet, but it's been a while since I've scanned their titles for mandolin recordings.

    Re: Modern writing?

    I don't have much to add beyond what's been discussed above. Essentially, there's lots abrew in contemporary mandolin composition.

    Re: Howard Frye

    Aye, I also digitized the classical LP years ago. Odd for me, I actually like the gypsy album a little better.
  10. Re: Quintetto Anedda’s new album from Brilliant Classics!

    I love this album, and an interesting approach: quartetto romantico plus orchestral bass.

    I only discovered this post by searching the forum for references to this recording. I was going to post...
  11. Re: Sebastian de Grebber, Dutch Mandolin Chamber Orchestra

    These were initially (and exclusively at that time) released as part of the Classical Mandolin Society of America's virtual conference this fall. It was good fun, a good and easily accessible event.

    I missed this query back then, but didn't have the link anyhow. My daughter showed it to me, I noted, and mentally moved on.

    Re: Pavane In E Minor

    I'm sorry. I'm struggling with this one. (1) I don't hear any mandolins, only guitar(s). (2) This arrangement! The harmony sounds simplified and the rhythm transformed from gently implied to...

    Re: "The Mandolin Meets Vivaldi" in NE Ohio

    I have to agree. I didn't know what to expect, but I admit that a resonator mandolin wasn't on my list of potential expectations. I'd rather the tone color of a more conventional mandolin played...

    Re: Polyetherimide plectra

    Yes, the Galli are patterned after traditional Neapolitan plectra of the "golden era," and the Apollo—in turn—are as well. The Galli are celluloid. I quite like their tone, form, and function, but...

    I love'em. This traditional large-Neapolitan profile perfectly serves how I prefer to mandolin. I love the acoustic behavior of this material (as mentioned before, I used to trim, buff, and bevel...
