    It's a mazurka composed by Laurent Geffroy and recorded by ZEF.
    This one was fun to record, i hope it will be fun to listen too.
    Different than other recording because i recorded three time mandolin to imitate a mandolin orchestra, and then i varied arrangement a little.
    A good way to spend Saturday afternoon.
    Mandolin, bass, guitar, electronic piano and melodica.

    If that isn’t a great professional recording….
    You haven’t misspend your Saturday afternoon, Pierpaolo.

    Fine arrangement, choice of instruments and playing, Pierpaolo. Your three mandolins technique has worked well too.

    The same thing happens with you that when I listen to the music of John Kelly, I feel that it is really exquisite music!

    Very nicely done! I really like the effect of having the mandolins playing single stroke on the melody and tremolo on the harmonies. Good professional mix, too, with just the right amount of reverb.

    I finally got around to recording this really cool tune, thanks to Pierpaolo for the sheet music. I found another YouTube version recorded solo by Laurent Geoffroy that I based my version on. I must apologize for not playing any mando things on this but nothing seemed to work and the concertina sounded closer to the diatonic accordion that Laurent plays.

    That's nice David.Your concertina playing is always enjoyable to listen to.

    You did a great recording of this lovely mazurka, David. Your sweet sounding concertina is the right lead instrument for this tune.
