  1. Re: Sheets / scores arranged for three mandolins, for a wedding

    Hi Cosmin,

    The more folky of the tunes in Evelyn's books are intended to be repeated multiple times, and to be combined into sets with a suitable transition.

    For more classical material, have a...
  2. Re: Sheets / scores arranged for three mandolins, for a wedding

    Hi Cosmin,

    Welcome to the Cafe, and congratulations on getting married!

    Have a look at Evelyn Tiffany-Castiglioni's pieces arranged for three mandolins. She has made many of them available for...

    Yes, I also followed up on that link -- lots of good stuff there, especially the sheet music! Thanks to Michael Reichenbach for posting that link here.

    Re: Suffragette March

    Thanks a lot, Martin -- looks interesting!

    By complete coincidence, I found the same score (plus an additional banjo part) at the Library of Congress website today while I was looking for...

    Re: Mezzacapo

    Hi Joe,

    I've come across the same mismatch of publication dates and biographical data when I was looking into the authorship of Eduardo Mezzacapo compositions, and came to the same conclusion as...
  6. Re: Liebe (Richard Strauss, Op. 42/1, 1899)

    Re-recorded and re-uploaded -- the previous version didn't sound very nice when I listened back. Apologies.

  8. Re: Erster Verlust (First Loss), Schumann adapted as a Mandolin d

    So long ago in fact that I forgot my instrumentation: that's tenor guitar, not mandocello on the accompaniment.

    1890s Umberto Ceccherini mandolin
    Vintage Viaten tenor guitar

  9. Re: Erster Verlust (First Loss), Schumann adapted as a Mandolin d

    Many thanks for this transcription!

    I made a recording using your score a few weeks ago, which I forgot to post. So, here it is, played as a duet of mandolin and mandocello. I only realised...
  10. Re: Question for notation-reading CGDAE-instrument players

    I prefer A, mainly because my brain is far too slow to deal with switching clefs or octaves in the middle of a phrase. Probably an indication that I need to polish up my sight-reading if I ever want...

  12. Re: Mandocello solo and duo recordings playlist

    Thanks, Bernie!

    No big secret about my recording technique: I use a cheap Zoom H2n digital recorder, connected as a USB microphone to a laptop running Audacity. With a bit of practice,...
  13. Re: Concert aria for baritone and plucked orchestra

    I asked Victor whether he minded if I tried this as an instrumental, giving the baritone part to solo mandocello. He kindly consented, although expressing some gentle doubt as to the viability of...
  14. Re: Violetta (G. Occhio, 1911), Italian waltz

    Thanks, Jim!

    I was playing straight from Michel's PDF score at the link above (direct link to PDF), which in turn is a direct transcript of the three original 1911 Tesio parts, minus dynamic...

  19. Re: Umberto's Mandolin (Ceccherini, double top, restored)

    I'm pretty sure this particular Ceccherini is now with our group -- four of our members now have Ceccherinis, two of them restored by John and two by me. All of them great tone.
