    Default "Anileda," by Stellario Cambria and ...?

    I have just come across a cache of mandolin sheet music, some dating circa 1915. I have no idea how much "good stuff" is in here, but sitting right on top is an arrangement of Tschaikowsky's "Chanson Triste" for guitar and mandolin (incomplete, but the missing parts might be buried somewhere).

    The next item, from approximately the same date, is "Anileda," by Stellario Cambria, according to the cover an "Original Composition for the Mandolin." This is complete. The great aunt of the person I received this collection from was a professional mandolin player in New York during the early 1920's. It is quite possible that she actually took lessons from Cambria.

    These are mostly old, crumbly manuscripts. My wife has "restored" worse stuff to useable digital images. It's going to take me a LONG time to catalog this stuff, but, if this is any indication, it will be worth it

    Would anyone be interested in usable digital images of the sheet music? I should have "Anileda" ready in a few days.

    Sheri Mignano Crawford has a very large collection of Italian sheet music, scans of which she has made available. Check out this thread:

    Thanks much, Frankie.

    I don't play much Italian mandolin music, or classical, but I know there are a lot of people who do. There are also some arrangements of popular songs from the twenties and perhaps into the early thirties. These may be of more historical or novelty interest, but hey, someone might like to see them.

    Again, thanks for the response!

    Incredible, the discovery of old scores of mandolin music is always fantastic ...

    I am sure that here many with more knowledge than me will be able to advise you better, but if you consider that it is a lot of work to digitize and catalog this material, surely there will be a university interested in helping you or the Classical Mandolin Society of America.

    Anileda by Stellario Cambria is in the Nakano collection, but it would be interesting to compare the version you own with the Nakano one ...

    Thank you for the information re those groups. I will actually enjoy the cataloging and digitization. But, perhaps they will be interested in the originals once I am done with them. They might also be able to find some of the missing pages as well, For instance: I have one score which is for four mandolins. and I only have the score for the 1st mandolin.

    I might keep one or two of the originals-- they might look nice next to my 1887 edition of Paradise Lost, illustrated by Dore, which I purchased for $30 at a thrift store

    Again, thanks!
