  1. Re: That famous cello prelude, deconstructed

    Again, I think it was a very well done presentation, and this is not the place to get into baroque period instruments or historical performance practice. I didn't think her physical expressive moving...
  2. Re: That famous cello prelude, deconstructed

    I often play through it at the end of a good practice session. I played it so many times I need to go back and look at the music, because I know I "remember" a couple measures incorrectly. But once I...
  3. Re: That famous cello prelude, deconstructed

    I liked the presentation very much, wish I'd had it when I was teaching AP Music Theory. The fact that it focused on actual musical details and relationships rather than comic book imagery or...

    "Clear Skies" new Mandocello Quartet

    "Clear Skies" is a piece I wrote to be performed (open mic) at the 2020 CMSA Convention in San Diego. The convention was of course moved to an online virtual event, and still offered a high level and...
  8. Re: Article: Florian Klaus Rumpf's A Year with the Classics Launc

    I assure you there are people interested. I look forward to seeing the music in the Yearbook, but--as I explained in my email to you--I am still confused about the current availability of actual...
  9. Re: Article: Florian Klaus Rumpf's A Year with the Classics Launc

    Florian, I told people about your Mandocello Yearbook project at the CMSA Mandocello Hangout. You told me that would be coming out next year because of copyright restrictions, so I could not offer my...

    Re: CMSA Convention in the Clouds

    Speaking as someone who played a marginal role in the production (I hosted, but did not build, design, manage, or teach lessons), I understand the desire to spread the word and open the access. And I...

    Re: Mark is back

    YES--shows the full range of possibilities of this instrument. Not just buzzy bass lines, not just rapid-fire picking, but lyrical, melodic, upper register, harmonic.... these are the aspects I tried...

    Well I hope you can attend the mandocello bits and pieces! Most things will be recorded and will be available to registered members for a while after, so you can catch up later.

    Yeah--that would work! But you do need a strong voice--like his. Great song & sound.

    Re: Mandocello "strum along" chords

    Also a baritone, although I was a vocal major and can extend my range a bit. I suggest realistically not trying to use the MC on every song--I mostly use mandolin (with a guitar-fiddle-bass group)...

    Re: Mandocello "strum along" chords

    I have a lot of material and topics ready for my CMSA Mandocello Hangout session, but one theme will be mandolin "things" that do not transfer to the mandocello. This chording thing is clearly one...
