    Re: A la Russe

    :)) Thanks a million, Jim. Hey, it's never too late for me to start another career just as I'm about to retire from academia. ;)

    In fact, I almost got to do exactly what you describe a few years...

    Re: A la Russe

    Hi, Jim.

    Haha... yes, yes. ;) Any time you feel, however vaguely, that there's something missing from your life, get a liuto cantabile! :)) As promised, I have just emailed you the solo part to my...

    Re: A la Russe

    Happy to see this piece mature so beautifully in the hands of such fantastic artists as Ferdinand and Het Consort. A huge round of applause to them all! :)

  5. Re: Bach BWV1007, an interesting experience with an unusual audie

    Very nice, Toomas. :)

    I'd love to look around Estonia next time I'm there, get a better feel of everything that's around. I was there a couple of years ago for the revival of one of my operas in...

    Re: Musical Reincarnation ;-)

    Oh, I think this would work just fine! :mandosmiley: Barber's Adagio is a much longer piece than my Idillio so I think that sheer endurance becomes a challenge; many mandolinists (myself included)...

    Re: Musical Reincarnation ;-)

    Thank you, Eric! This piece (or rather this arrangement) was my humble homage to Giacomo Puccini and was made around either his birthday or some round-number anniversary of his. I was thinking mostly...

    Re: Musical Reincarnation ;-)

    Thanks, Eugene. Curious, how such a itsy, bitsy composition may have just landed me a HUGE movie soundtrack deal... :disbelief:

    Like Brahms and Ravel, I am a chronic, habitual arranger of my own...

    Re: Musical Reincarnation ;-)

    Thank you! Indeed, they did a lovely job, both with the music and with the cinematography. I couldn't be happier with the outcome. :)

    Musical Reincarnation ;-)

    Dear mandolin friends around the world,

    I hope 2020 brings you success in all your endeavors. For me, the year has started with the warm afterglow of a performance of my little Idillio Sinfonico...

    Re: Japanese Commission / Premiere

    Thanks, Jim. "Bigness" was always the intention, right from the get-go. Most plucked ensembles are modest in size; this commission was a challenge and a novelty for me as I knew from the start that I...

    Re: Japanese Commission / Premiere

    Thank you, Simon.

    The character of the piece is self-evident, I believe. I was thinking of splashing, tidal waves, crashing on the shores— but of course the Japanese may view that sort of thing...

    Re: Round picks

    Happy to see good old friends on this thread... :)

    Noise under the ear isn't necessarily noise in the audience. Bratsche and I are fellow bowed-string players by profession and have lived forever...
  17. Re: Dogal strings, Anyone tried them out and could comment?

    I believe that some folks who play "German type" bowlbacks use flat-wound Dogals; I have no experience to report on. I tend to associate flat-wound metal strings with bowed instruments, where the...
  18. Re: Concert aria for baritone and plucked orchestra

    Very happy to hear all that, Jim. Audio/video records are always welcome, of course, but the ultimate bottom line, what really matters in the end, is whether people enjoyed the musical experience....
  19. Re: Concert aria for baritone and plucked orchestra

    :redface: Needless to say, there's more to come. :)
  20. Re: Concert aria for baritone and plucked orchestra

    You raise many, interesting points. Here is my reply, perhaps too involved for anyone to care to read it. :)) My views, of course, are just my views, not universal values.

    It's fair to say that...
  21. Re: Concert aria for baritone and plucked orchestra

    Very happy to hear that, Jim. I hope that everyone in attendance at CMSA will enjoy this little piece. I'm happy to have made this arrangement.

    Music is to be shared; that's my "guiding star", if...
  22. Re: Concert aria for baritone and plucked orchestra

    Hello, Raimondo. I have just sent you the score and parts for this piece in both versions, both the original one for tenor and the subsequent arrangement for baritone. I hope you and your colleagues...
  23. Re: Concert aria for baritone and plucked orchestra

    Thank you for writing, Raimondo. I will send you the score and parts tonight, as soon as I get home. :)
  24. Re: Concert aria for baritone and plucked orchestra

    It's already in the mail, so to speak. ;) Email delivery time varies, of course, but you should have it soon enough.
  25. Re: Concert aria for baritone and plucked orchestra

    Greetings, all.

    The transposed version has been completed and circulated to all those on my global mando-list. If anyone not on my contact list would like to have the score and parts, they are...
