    Chris Acquavella in New York

    I just heard from Jim Kendrick who is hosting this concert that there is still room for a few more attendees. I believe that this would be Chris' only performance in the New York area. Details below.

    Friday, May 11, 2012 - 7:30pm - Solo Concert in New York City. Chris Acquavella will be presenting a lovely evening of solo mandolin repertoire on both baroque and modern mandolins using period techniques. Music by Bach, Leone, Calace, Kioulaphides, Ochi, O'Carolan, Piazzolla, and much more. This will be a 2 hour concert with intermission. Venue: Private Home of Jim Kendrick. (exact address will be provided once reservation is booked.) Tickets: $20. To reserve your tickets please email Jim Kendrick

    Hi all!

    Here is a photo made at the new School of Music of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra where the three laureats of the Princes Christina Concours performed last Friday evening (4-5-2012). Vancouver was the last leg of their North America tour, after Los Ageles, San Francisco and Calgary. Tomorrow they fly home again!

    Program Notes by Robert A. Margo

    In the early 20th century heyday of the mandolin, there were numerous mandolin orchestras in the greater New York metropolitan area. Today, the New York Mandolin Ensemble carries on this grand tradition, with an exciting blend of classical and popular works.

    Our concert begins with six works performed by the NYME. Three of these works date from the baroque period, the origins of the modern mandolin. The Gervasio is an original three movement “symphony” while the Scarlatti arrangements are of sonatas originally for harpsichord. The other three pieces are original works by Antonelli and reflect a wide variety of influences, both popular and contemporary classical. The NYME is joined on one of these pieces, “Four Machines”, by the Katelyn Paquin Dance Company.

    Our concert continues with four works performed by the PMO, starting with an old favorite, Robert Martel’s “Sky Colored Lake”. A prolific composer for modern classical guitar and an eminent performer on early plucked strings and modern guitar, Frank Wallace’s Nocturne is his first large scale composition for mandolin ensemble. Owen Hartford has written many works for the PMO over his long tenure with the group. His latest composition, in three movements, is the Neponset Valley Suite. Astor Piazzolla composed Oblivion for Marco Bellocchio’s film Enrico IV, an adaptation of the classic play by Luigi Pirandello.

    The NYME and PMO join forces with the first movement of the Brandenburg #3, the concerto (of the six) most suitable for plucked strings. The Faure Pavane is arranged by Jeff Dearinger, a leading arranger for mandolin orchestra. Palladio is famous from its appearance in a television commercial. Our concert concludes with Victor Kioulaphides’ atmospheric Hues of Dusk and, in in a nod to Abbey Road, Steven Antonelli’s fanfare, An Ending.

    The New York Mandolin Ensemble

    Mandolin: Steven Antonelli, Gino Cichetti, Wayne Fugate, Roy Goldberg, John Ruis
    Mandola: Wayne Fugate
    Guitar: Gino Cichetti, Rich Robinson
    Mandocello: Steven Antonelli
    Bass: Stephanie Mack

    For this performance the NYME is assisted by PMO members Josh Bell (mandolin), Duane Golumb (mandolin) and Robert Margo (mandolin, mandola).

    The Providence Mandolin Orchestra

    Director: Mark Davis
    First Mandolin: Joshua Bell (concertmaster), Christine Chito, Yvette Cote, Duane Golumb, Chang Lee
    Second Mandolin: Lynne Bell, Owen Hartford, Paul Wilde
    Mandola: Mark Chouke, Mack Johnston, Robert Margo, Gayle Raposa
    Mandocello: Dan Moore, Matt Snyder
    Guitar: Mark Armstrong, Beverly Davis, Michael Hession
    Bass: Hiatt Knapp

    The New York Mandolin Ensemble was founded by Steven Antonelli and Bob Rose, and is currently co-directed by Antonelli and Victor Kioulaphides. Active as a composer and performer in a variety of idioms, Antonelli has a separate career in education, directing a Head Start program in lower Manhattan. A freelance performer on double bass in New York City, Victor Kioulaphides is also an award-winning composer whose many works for plucked strings have received widespread acclaim and numerous performances and recordings.

    The original Providence Mandolin Orchestra was founded in the early 20th century during the instrument’s “Golden Age”. The modern version of the PMO dates from 1971, when it was revived by Hibbard Perry. Since then the PMO has become the leading American mandolin ensemble with regular performances throughout the eastern United States and Western Europe. Currently the PMO is directed by Mark Davis, who pursues an active career as an educator, conductor, and performer.

    Visit the PMO at its website, www.mandolin-orchestra.org and on youtube.

    I am excited to announce the inaugural concerts of my new trio, Ensemble Fret, that heavily features mandolin:

    Ensemble Fret is a performance collective founded in 2012 by Buzz Gravelle, Walter Marsh and Peter Yates. Its programs feature music for guitar, mandolin and arpeggione (bowed guitar), whether solo, in duos and trios, or in expandable combination with guest vocalists and instrumentalists. Results range from intimate art-song to massed guitars.

    This program features music by Bach (three of his Sinfonias arranged for guitar, mandolin, and arpeggione), Haydn (a baryton trio arranged for same instrumentation), and Hugo Wolf (lieder arranged for two guitars and mandolin), in addition to solo guitar pieces by Josef Hauer (the mysterious and cantankerous co-inventor of 12-tone music), original pieces by myself for fretless classical guitar, and 62 variations on the "Hanging Tune" for guitar and piano written by Peter Yates. With special guest pianist Nadia Shpachenko.

    Sunday, May 20, 2012 - 4:00 pm
    Organ Studio, Schoenberg Hall, UCLA
    Admission Free, parking $11

    Friday, May 25, 2012 - 8:00 pm

    Hi Jim and Hello Victor,

    Yes Victor, Bingo! The Calace is Ferdinand's trophy! The 2011 'Ripa' model by Maestro Raffaele Calace jr.; the first prize in the Calace concorso 2011!

    Here is a photo I took of Ferdinand right after the last notes of final concert at the Raffaele Calace Concorso in Ripamolisano where he performed - as a 'Thank You' to Maestro Raffaele Calace jr., the jury ánd the audience - Victor's wonderful 'Variations on a Basque Melody' on that very same instrument. A fantastic and really beautiful instrument with a wonderful and brilliant sound!

    Greetings everyone!

    I'm pleased to announce that I will be performing my new Mandolin Concerto with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra next Saturday, June 30. The concert is part of the orchestra's summer series at the CMAC on beautiful lake Canandaigua located 30 minutes south of Rochester, NY. It's not often you'll hear a mandolin concerto followed by Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture. There should be a lot of fireworks!

    Hi Jeff,

    I wish I could be there and listen to your Mandolin Concerto and the other works on the programme. But unfortinately work etc. does not give me the oppertunity to go. Maybe a (complete) recording on CD of your Concerto will be available some day? That would also be nice.

    For now I wish you all the success in the World!

    Best greetings, Alex.

    Hi Victor (et all),


    And warmest greetings to you and yours, Victor!

    A little update for you and your music in Dutch atmosphere...

    The four Hesse Lieder by the Asteria Ensemble were just great!!! A really worthy première that was very well received by the audience!

    And your Variations on a Basque Melody were again played by Ferdinand Binnendijk in such a dazzling way that - even now nearly two days ago - the melody is still in my head!
    It was a wonderful concert for a full house! Really memorable again!

    And there was a café member amongst the public. Our 'own' David Westwick and his wife Patricia happened to be in the Netherlands and had come all the way to Zwolle for the concert. That was really nice; I hope they enjoyed a wonderful concert evening!


    Best greetings,

    Alex.
