About the author:

Fabio Machado was born in Funchal, Portugal and started studying mandolin at the age of 9 years. He joined the Madeira Mandolin Orchestra (Recreio Musical União da Mocidade) and became its Concertmaster for several years, performing in several venues as a soloist.

In 1998 he toured central and northern Portugal, performing in Águeda, Vila do Conde, Benavente, Santarém and Expo 98.

I'd be curious to know if the solos are in the arrangement...there's nice stuff for viola and violin duet and celli soli in the original. If anyone knows, please post. This is a lovely work, but not for the faint at heart! Yvonne

Yes, the solos and duets are in it (after all,it is a transcription). I am taking care of the separated parts that will soon be available.

I don't know if our group is up to it, but I will talk to our director because it is a beautiful work. Congrats! Yvonne, Dayton Mandolin Orchestra mandocellist.
