    Re: Speranze Perdute

    Now that I re-listen to the 1989 version, I think it's more of a hybrid: Pignoloni intro with Di Bella in the body of the waltz--added enhancement by first mandolinist Norman Giorno-Calapristi.
    As...

  12. Re: Who was the first American mandolin manufacturer?

    The smile on my face this Monday is derived from the intelligence, illumination and sense of humor shed on this thread as to the origin and/or original "ur" mandolin. Not to be confused with oranges...
  13. Re: Who was the first American mandolin manufacturer?

    Barry's reference to Gualdo is important to the discussion. If I recall from my own investigations, this early mandolin teacher/performer died quite young in an insane asylum. We mustn't read too...

  17. Re: Who was the first American mandolin manufacturer?

    excellent! Ollaimh! Yes, eventually, the French exported mandolins to Chicago so who knows how early that started but again, they weren't built here. I lived in Montréal and am well aware of how the...
