    Good Morning mandolinists,
    good news, I've just uploaded "Midnight" score and parts in the Rudy Cipolla Dropbox. You'll find a separate 18 pp score, and parts files for flute, mandolin 1 & 2; mandola 1 & 2, guitar, mandocello, and double bass. I hope you enjoy learning it and wish you all the best.
    don't forget you can download everything in this folder--including the recordings with Grisman, Marshall, Anger, Bruen and many others (including myself on flute)
    Take care and take solace in the music, all the best, Sheri

    Just uploaded an interview that Dix Bruce did with Rudy in Frets, May 1987. Just click on the Dropbox folder link.

    That's quite the shirt and tie combination! Too bad the photo isn't in color.

    You are so right! just about the wildest paisley shirt you'd wear around Haight-Ash back in the day. The photographer is Jon Sievert who died in January 2020; he probably photographed every Rock n Roll musician there ever was. An astonishing array of celebrities. I did not keep the original copy of the magazine so I don't know if he photographed in Rudy in b/w or color. I am on the hunt for it and Dix Bruce is looking for the original print which he may still have.

    one of several studies he composed for two mandolins and certainly, one of his most endearing, enchanting, and enduring! Thanks for posting it.

    Maestro Rudy Cipolla would have celebrated his 120th birthday Monday, September 21, 2020. In preparation to honor him, I'm creating a slide show which will cover some of the highlights of his life as a musician and composer. Next year, I hope to give participatory workshops devoted to his compositions at the Classical Mandolin Society of America convention. As soon as I finish it, I will make the slide show available in the forum and on YouTube as well.

    [QUOTE=Mandophile;1762548] "Cipollyana" was composed/arranged in the summer of 1970 for Ken Culver's Portland (Oregon) Mandolin Ensemble.
    I am curious about this piece as a current (virtual of course) member of the OMO. I did not see it on the uploaded site, will keep checking but please, would love to see the score--maybe talk the orchestra into playing it again?
    Thank you for this extensive work on a name I knew, but music I did not.
    EDITING:
    Looked futher, found it--again thanks for this special remembrance.

    Cipollyana was uploaded several months ago. You need to scroll down to the alphabetized PDF files (they follow the audio files).

    Dear Rudy Fans and future Fans!
    It's done! I am so happy to announce "Rudy Cipolla: Maestro Extraordinario." I finished this visual biography with brief annotations for each of the 40 "slides". This is a ginormous PDF file and the final 6-7 pp. should be printed so that you can follow along as you view teach "slide" in your PC. The accompanying text should fill you in a little until such time (soon!) that I can create the video with full narration. I prepared the story in preparation for giving workshops at the Classical Mandolin Society of America's next convention, postponed now to November 2021 (cross our fingers). So you all have plenty of time to learn the tunes and get to know Rudy. Owen Hartford's photos are great and you're going to be quite surprised by the wonderful pix, stories, and his total devotion to the mandolin family.
    Tomorrow would have been Rudy's 120th birthday (actually, it's already September 21st if you live in Italy). I hope you enjoy learning more about him. Thanks for checking him out. (BTW, I can email a copy directly with a PM or you can go to academia.edu to download the paper. It's about 47 pp. Thanks, and I hope you all enjoy a happy, stress-free autumn. Sheri

    My video of another Rudy Cipolla tune - Ricordante - Study for two mandolins. This tune has been recorded for the album "Traversata".
    The sheet music can be found in Sheri's Drop Box.

    I see the Aquella Negrita Impetuosa for mandocello part is in treble clef; I am collecting and promoting music for the mandocello (CMSA 2018 & 2019 workshops) and would be happy to transcribe this to bass clef if that's OK with you. Nowadays most MC players use the bass clef and this would be a valuable addition to our repertoire. I hope to present music like this virtually in November and at future conventions, and I look forward to meeting you there. And our Oregon group is looking into Cipollyana written for the former Portland group.
    Thank you for putting all this work out there for the rest of us!

    I am glad you noticed this. "Negrita" comes from his Argentine Trio decade. As I go through titles in the archives, I will note which titles do not use bass clef, convert those mandocello parts into bass clef, and create a separate folder. Without disturbing any of the enormous PDF files, it will be a simple matter of downloading one PDF with all mandocello bass parts. Also, there are already violoncello parts written in bass clef so this may not be as daunting a challenge as I first suspected. I'll announce this here and if anyone wants to get on board receiving announcements about the Rudy Cipolla workshops at CMSA, please PM me at zighi(at)sonic.net ~Sheri

    Glad we're connected, hope you got my email. I am hopeful that future CMSA events are going to have more mandocello attention as well as your input on Rudy's music. Let's stay in touch--jfimhoff@msn.com

    "Negrita" is the only manuscript where mandocello was composed in treble clef. All other mandocello parts are composed in bass or F clef.

    Happy New Year Rudy fans! I have added two new files to the "Rudy Cipolla archive" (see the link below). The first file is a 47-second movie clip/scene from Coppola's 1982 "Peggy Sue Got Married." The movie was on the television the other day so I took a chance at filming this scene with my iPhone--and it worked! Rudy is playing in a silhouetted cameo while Peggy Sue seems to be observing a hocus-pocus Masonic ritual! Well, even though I saw the movie when it was first released, I could not recall what it was but he did not play one of his compositions. It was Stephen Foster's "Beautiful Dreamer." It may sound like an odd choice but certainly it was at the Director's request to find a song that tied into this fantasy segue. In addition, I added the sheet music for mandolin quartet of Foster's song. I have no idea how I came across this piece arranged for mandolins. Who transcribed it? Did I or did I get it from the Internet. Sorry, I can't even recall that's how long it's been around. It could be a really fun piece to play. So take a look and download clip and sheet music.

    Stay safe! and let's keep Rudymusic alive! Thanks, Sheri

    Good News! We have a tentative venue were we could rehearse outdoors when the great California weather returns. We would wear masks and socially distance.
    Details will follow as we cross our fingers and beat this virus. It would be great as we get closer to identify those who've been vaccinated. All in good time. So please, keep on practicing! and I'm hopeful we can record a few titles for a virtual convention at the very least! Best to you all! Gung Hay Fat Choy! Sheri

    If you're in the bay area on Saturday, June 19th, we will hold a Rudy rehearsal. Due to Covid, we need to restrict the # of musicians. Well, I don't see a calendar any more for posting gigs etc. It will take place between 11A and 3P. I request a PM to attend this rehearsal. Please indicate which instrument(s) you'll play. I will send you links and a Rudy ZIP file with all the sheet music. You can't attend unless you've been approved. Thank you for your understanding, Sheri

    I am happy to say that all the videos of Rudy Cipolla are now publicly posted on my YouTube channel. I still haven't found the videographer responsible for Rudy's birthday party at the Great American Music Hall. Grisman and colleagues helped Rudy to celebrate his 90th birthday. It was a fantastic evening. When you visit the restored bio video, you will also see the GAMH video and an East Bay community's recording studio of Rudy and the Berkeley Mandolin Ensemble.

    During this summer, in preparation for the Classical Mandolin Society of America's annual conference, a group of musicians have been rehearsing his music outdoors at Matt Vucsinich's home in Alameda. We have five titles on the docket and if you'd like to join in on the fun, PM me and I'll email you the sheet music for your specific instrument. Rudy Cipolla scored for the entire mandolin family and more!

    There are two workshops planned at the convention in San Diego. Don't miss out on the fun! Sheri
