    Re: Bowlbacks of Note

    I bought a Ciani/Galiano decades ago. Similar degree of ornament (but with those two cherubs facing each other on the scratchplate), but without that extended fingerboard (maybe a short extension to...

    Re: Recording through the Bach Cello Suites

    Interesting and bass-rich choices, Harmon. I saw Hoppy perform an entire concert of Bach cello suites on German theorbo in Ann Arbor in 2013. Afterwards, we ate pie! I brought Hoppy to a concert...

    Re: Romantic lieder on mandolin and piano

    Of course, this was one of Jean Pietrapertosa's (1855–1940) schticks. I have one of his published collections of Mendelssohn and Schubert songs someplace.

    Re: Bowlbacks of Note

    Wacky. Good thing that fingerboard is so thoroughly mapped! It's easy to get lost beyond that first-position f".

    Re: Emanuil Sheynkman

    I took a cursory dig at the accessible basement vinyl, but the Sheynkman LP in question wasn't immediately visible. It's probably still buried in a box someplace after our last move (seven years...

    Re: Emanuil Sheynkman

    I have his album Russian Folk Instruments: Mandolin. His performances are technically precise, but the arrangements are really strange, especially for otherwise familiar pieces like those by...

    Re: Sad news: John Goodin died yesterday

    Elaborating a bit, years ago, John was kind enough to send me the Greek album that he played on (Maria Zouves' With Flowers Crowned). When I used to send scores of my arrangements around by e-mail...

    I wish I knew. And here, North Americans seem less informed regarding dedicated repertoire and often only seem to know "classical" mandolin as transcriptions of popular classics originally composed...

    Re: The "legitimate classical instrument" thing..

    Dedicated repertoire (not arrangements) by "legit" composers like Vivaldi, Handel, Mozart, Beethoven, Hummel, Bizet, Mahler, Stravinsky, Schoenberg, etc. ad infinitum seem to provide evidence for...

    My own ability to see disappeared as well . . . until now. I don't use an iPhone—don't post here using any phone. I wonder if the direct eBay link was somehow autoflagged as potential spam.

    Re: Bowlbacks of Note

    My daughter shared this interesting listing with me: eBay item 275002416982. I'm not interested in buying, but find the piece interesting because I have a 1910s Favilla Bros. with an identical...
  20. Re: Canon in Augmentation and Contrary Motion BWV 1080

    FYI, no mandolin in sight but Hesperion XX's is an arrangement of which I'm quite fond.
  21. Re: Canon in Augmentation and Contrary Motion BWV 1080

    Yup, that one would match the piece/score to which I refer above.
  22. Re: Canon in Augmentation and Contrary Motion BWV 1080

    Sorry, I don't have the CD in question.

    However, in case you aren't aware, the single canon in question isn't BWV 1080, but rather is from a much larger BWV 1080, "Die Kunst der Fuge" ["The Art of...
