    Re: Adapting violin music for mandolin

    Re: Mandolin and two violins

    Also, flutists are nuts for playing together in the absence of others. Thus, there's a lot of flute-trio literature out there, some of which might be effectively realized by your proposed ensemble.

    Re: Mandolin and two violins

    Beginning with virtuosic flourish at 1:05, Artemandoline play Arrigoni's trio sonata for mandolino and violin with the neapolitan mandolin taking the violin part. I hope it amuses.

    Since this conversation has wandered a bit, my friend Tip makes occasional cases for me. Early in his case-making career, he made one for my ca.1835 Neapolitan mandolin. More recently, he made one...

    Re: Bardic inspiration for role playing games.

    So, depending on what one is willing to call "mandolin," instruments with related names began appearing in the early Baroque era, around 1600. Those first mandolins were much more soprano-lute-like...
