  2. Re: Who was the first American mandolin manufacturer?

    Typographical errors abound, then add in that Noah Webster's standardized spelling is still decades away. I would think that "mandores" might be much closer to the Italian "mandorla" which refers to...

    Re: Speranze Perdute

    I just read Ennio Morricone's obituary today. Like Morelli, he became another great Roman-born musician-composer; I mentioned that he scored Bertolucci's "1900" but I need to correct the debut year...

    Re: Speranze Perdute

    Now that I re-listen to the 1989 version, I think it's more of a hybrid: Pignoloni intro with Di Bella in the body of the waltz--added enhancement by first mandolinist Norman Giorno-Calapristi.
