    Wow. Thank you.
  2. Re: SILVIO RANIERI - Mandolinist, Conductor and Composer.

    I'm loving all the research into Ranieri you and Ralf are doing, Alex. Keep it up. I really enjoy the sound of the mandolin section with other orchestral instruments, such as oboe and flute. It seems...
  3. Tracks of San Francisco Italian Mandolin Masters

    I acquired several cassette tapes of master mandolin players who lived and played in San Francisco and the Bay Area. I don't think these tracks are available elsewhere. I have been slowly digitizing...

    Re: How many frets for classical music?

    Some of the solo pieces need the high G.

    I say 27 frets is the minimum. 29 would be better for covering violin solo literature.

    However, most of the music I play does not need those notes. I...

    Re: Classical Mandolin Dealers

    Apologies for any offence -- I should have written "unacceptable to some" rather than "many", but the point was that the setup and tone of an Embergher is very different from, say, a modern Woll...

  11. Re: LA VOCE DEL MANDOLINO -New Solo Mandolin CD Sebastiaan de Gre

    I purchased Sebastiaan's first CD from his website shortly after it's release and have enjoyed his artistry immensely. This second offering will no doubt be a fine addition to anyone's classical...
  12. Re: LA VOCE DEL MANDOLINO -New Solo Mandolin CD Sebastiaan de Gre

    Anyone who attempts my Sweelinck Variations is truly heroic— or a tad masochistic. :)) I look forward to hearing Sebastiaan's performances on this album. He balances brilliance and delicacy in equal...

    Re: Fame (or just Old Age?)

    Ah, yes... the fame of becoming an annotated footnote. I'll say this much: it certainly measures up to my wealth, with periodic royalty statements listing ~vast~ sums of the $1.99 magnitude. :))

  16. Re: The Song of the Japanese Autumn by Het Consort & Sytse Buwald

    I think that's one of the most exciting mandolin ensemble performances I've ever heard. Really wonderful. Thank you.
  17. Re: The Song of the Japanese Autumn by Het Consort & Sytse Buwald

    One of my favourite pieces. Great approach to take, well done for being innovative.
  18. Re: The Song of the Japanese Autumn by Het Consort & Sytse Buwald

    Beautiful ensemble playing. The music sounds like a film score.
  19. Re: The Song of the Japanese Autumn by Het Consort & Sytse Buwald

    Very beautiful, and interesting. Not what I was expecting.

    Wow. That was truly beautiful. Thank you!

  23. Re: Bach on the Liuto cantabile by Ferdinand Binnendijk

    I jumped ahead to the bouree, 9:10, as that is the part I am most familiar with. Just wonderful.

    Then I reset and played the whole thing, on my bigger speakers in the living room. Delightful.
  24. Re: Bach on the Liuto cantabile by Ferdinand Binnendijk

    Outstanding performance.
    Thank you, Alex.
    Bravo, Ferdinand!
  25. Re: Bach on the Liuto cantabile by Ferdinand Binnendijk

    What an inspiring performance. I've been working on this Suite on my mandocello for months and months, and I'm hopeful I can catch up with Mr. Binnendijk—in about seventy years!:)
