    Re: Mandolin and two violins

    Thanks Eugene -- I really like that interpretation by Artemandoline, although I only came across it after recording my own quite different (and considerably less virtuosic) version of the Arrigoni...

    Re: Mandolin and two violins

    If you're looking for mixed mandolin/violin repertoire, I am fond of this Sonata for mandolin, violin and basso by Carlo Arrigoni, which may work if you can adapt the basso part to be played by one...

  5. Re: Summer Suite, August, 2020 for Octave Mandolin or Mandocello

    Thank you very much for the new Summer Suite, John!

    I've just finished an initial read-through on mandocello, and like its two predecessors it's great fun to play. I still need to get my head...
  6. Re: Alison Stephens: Con Espressione availability

    I don't know if the album is still available but wanted to add to Eugene's voice that it's a wonderful recording, probably my favourite album of Alison's. The unaccompanied solo setting really gave...

    Re: Saraband by William Lawes

    Thanks, John. Measure 13 sounded fine to me when I was playing -- I was wondering more about the d# in the previous measure. I did play the g# in measure 29, even though I found it sounded a bit...

    Re: Saraband by William Lawes

    Thanks, Barry! Following your suggestion, I got my mandocello out and have played this Lawes saraband using John's fingering but transposed down to A minor. You are right that this works really well...

    Re: Saraband by William Lawes

    Very nice, John! Lawes was court composer for Charles I, and was a very interesting composer, very different from the Tudor/renaissance composers before him or the high baroque of Purcell after him....

    Re: 11 (eleven!) string thing?

    Not a waldzither, I think -- there definitely are 11- (and 13-) string waldzithers around in addition to the more common 9-string, but this instrument is too small and the string configuration is all...

    That's very sad news. Michael Smith was a great songwriter, not just for The Dutchman but for many other songs that never became hits. The 2-for-1 CD of his two solo albums for Flying Fish was on...
