  1. Re: Passacaglia della vita (Bisogna morire), renaissance madrigal

    Easily my favorite of the songs attributed to Landi (who was also one of the first "great" composers of opera). I'm not always on board with L'Arpeggiata's interpretive decisions, but I do love...
  2. Re: Classical nerd roll call: Lyon & Healy archtops

    Cheers! That bowlback profile is still the friendliest to my own right arm.
  3. Re: Classical nerd roll call: Lyon & Healy archtops

    Agreed on the de Pace visual aesthetic. All off.
  4. Re: Review: Carlo Mazzaccara Lucia bowlback mandolin

    Thanks for sharing, Tim. I'm a sucker for fluted ribs.

    Re: I'm beginning to want to play classical

    My own preference is for music actually written for mandolin. That said, I do play/make a lot of arrangements because (1) people only actually want to hear classical music in the act of getting...

    Cheers, Holmes (aka Scotter)! It was lovely to catch up, see your pre-surgery (but still lovely) Buckeye, and sip a forbidden ale.

    Re: Calace discography project

    Wow. I thought I would easily follow suit if such a thread were begun, but it will take some real effort to do so in this format. I'll try. . . . soon. . . . I hope.

    Re: “Free” vrs “metered” tremelo

    Of course, dynamic variability through a sustained tremolo is a pretty common technique going back as far as tremolo has been discussed/notated. Emulating the human voice has been a commonly...

    Re: “Free” vrs “metered” tremelo

    It depends on what a player's sense of phrasing, what the music, seems to call for. Of course, duo-style passages will require some degree of metering to keep the bass notes synchronized.

    Coincidentally, it looks like the record company's parent company has uploaded the whole of the above-referenced album to YouTube, albeit not necessarily sequentially. The octave g'-g course is...

    Re: Happy Birthday - Raffaele Calace

    I have some favorites, although my own library certainly isn't comprehensive. Perhaps a thread with its own relevant title? I'd happily contribute to such after I shed the daily office shackles.

    Re: Mom's miniature parlor

    The mandolin or the house at large? The mandolin is maybe 1.5 inches or so. The whole doll house is way bigger than I would endeavor to give such a thing.

    Mom's a nut for Victorian doll houses/miniatures. At least her parlor sports appropriate mandolin (far wall, next to the pump organ). (In the interest of total transparency, the mandolin was a gift...

    Interesting. I have Simon's later recordings of Chopin solos and concerti as well as his take on the Paganini settings by Brahms and Liszt. I suppose I had no idea he was actually still alive. ...
