    I have just uploaded a new video for Sentimento Notturno (Nocturne Thoughts) , by Prof. L. Canoro, published in 1928 by A. Paolilli's Music Co. from Sheri's dropbox archive. A very nice tune in e...

    For those looking for more, I encouraged Sheri to continue. So she wrote for Harpguitars.net a wonderful story about the Calamaras. I then used that as an excuse to update all my many Joseph Bohmann...

    Re: Mandolin classical literature

    Yes.

    Many of the forms are Da Capo aria type ternary form or "march" form, for example. With contrasting key changes for each section, and counterpoint on the 2nd parts.

    I love the title of Tesio's book: "Complete Musical Catechism."

    I assume the same could be said for New Orleans, which has had Italian and Sicilian immigration since the early 1800's. Although there is eveidence of mandolin activity in New Orleans, it seems most...

    Amazing story, Sher, from the frontlines in "saving Italian mandolin civilization".....Thanks for sharing.
    And for all the hard work, of course!
    Brings to mind Robert Edsel's book "Saving Italy". ...

    Another great tune from Sheri's archive - Tra Veglia e Sonno - it's also featured in Italian Mandolin Heroes in America.

    Hey, exciting news—for me, at least. My copy of Italian Mandolin Heroes in America arrived just a few minutes ago. I know many others have this beautiful book already. Very impressive, Sheri. I look...

    Re: Who was Bickford....

    Sorry I derailed the Bickford thread--I meant "bass range" of course, not clef. Bickford lays out his clef system on p. 6, using the "G" clef for all ranges but with a slash or two slashes to...

    Hi, everyone. I got my copy of Heroes in the mail on Saturday. Wonderful, and informative. I haven't gotten to the "dense" parts yet, but so far it's great. Thanks as always, Sheri!

    This book, along with Sheri's compendium of the actual music from these publishers which she has posted here at the MC, must certainly be one of the most splendid resources ever provided to mandolin...

    Yes, very interesting discussion about the Guitar accompiament. As a Mandolin player, I selfishly, didnít concern myself enough with the Guitarist situation & history. As long as they put the right...

    Thank you for your interesting post.

    At the CMSA convention, one informal topic of discussion concerning the Italian style players was about the guitar parts.

    Well, I have the Sicilian grandparents but I did not have the family "bring out the mandolins and guitars" - that would have been wonderful!
