    Re: That famous cello prelude, deconstructed

    Re: That famous cello prelude, deconstructed

    The essence of all things Bachian, eh? Aye, a very nice, very accessible lay analysis. However, I admit to still getting a little itchy whenever I here a wordless "classical" piece—especially a...

    Agreed. I really enjoyed the video and visit related to the Japanese boutiques.

    To be fair, the $150 includes membership. It was a good excuse for me to rejoin.

    Cool. I'm still using this as an excuse for a half-day off from day-job concerns.

    Re: Ludwig van Beethoven: Dances

    Cool. I actually play this one in wedding preludes, ordinarily arranged as a flute–guitar duo.

    Re: CMSA Convention in the Clouds

    Thanks for the heads up. With this word, I'll put some effort into deliberate searching. My time is still pretty limited by day-job duties.

    CMSA Convention in the Clouds

    It's been years since I've sat in on fractions of a Classical Mandolin Society of America (CMSA) event, but I will be today through Sunday thanks to this year's virtual platform. Whom among you...

    Re: Classical mandolin album library list

    Bulent seems to be a nice guy, based in Turkey. We've been Facebook "friends" for some time, but have never actually met (typical, I think, of international Facebook friends). He's been blanketing...

    Re: Carlo de Filippis recording

    I actually believe it's the standard Style 20 (1929–1942) pictured on both album covers, Charley. If you look closely at the headstock profile on the blue cover, you'll see a little telltale divot...

    In similar modern/modernist vein to Clockworks and ZU are several albums by Ahlert and Schwab (especially Chilli con Tango, Nowhere Left to Go, Le musée, and American Music: some of their output is...

    Re: Carlo de Filippis recording

    Agreed. Of course, that was rather early in the modern revival of baroque music, especially regarding recordings. It took a while for modern players and listeners to move beyond The Four Seasons,...

    Re: Carlo de Filippis recording

    For the curious, beginning at 1:33, here's a good period-instrument performance of RV 558 complete with baroque mandolini (tuned g, b, e', a', d", g") and theorbos.

    Re: Carlo de Filippis recording

    Thanks for this, Mandophile. I never realized that Casella was the arranger of this version. I'm actually a fan of Casella's symphonies, especially opp.5 and 12 that showed some influence from...

    ZU is a bit of a classic. I should score a copy on CD, just because digitizing vinyl is time consuming enough for me that I only really care to indulge in it for recordings that have never been...

    I wouldn't be too disparaging of Mel Bay et al. While the bulk of their publishing does amount to pandering to potential popularity (they do have to sell stuff to stay afloat, eh?), they also...

    PS: I often use stem direction to differentiate between tremolo and single-stroke notes in duo style passages.
