    Re: James Oswald: Divertimento I

    Toomas, I knew that my transcriptions of the Oswald 12 had been downloaded many times years ago when I would check statistics on them. I haven't done that for several years now. I am glad they found...

  11. Re: Sebastian de Grebber, Dutch Mandolin Chamber Orchestra

    Tim, I understand what you are saying about the CMSA convention music. The en masse orchestra music can seem daunting and the level of playing has certainly risen over the years. You are the best...
  12. Re: Sebastian de Grebber, Dutch Mandolin Chamber Orchestra

    Tim, it's great to hear from someone diving into this deep pool of great mandolin music. I just want to put in a plug for the Classical Mandolin Society of America. On the CMSA website, as a...
