    Re: New five course mandocello

    Not my place to announce or advertise just yet, but I will be talking about a new mandocello method book at October's CMSA. Only 8 strings, though.

    Re: New five course mandocello

    When my choirs performed 16th Century French chansons at a college on the Canadian border (Potsdam NY) the French professor told me Quebecois was closer to the period pronunciation than modern...

    Re: New five course mandocello

    I see; too bad it's not still on the market. But I have too much invested in my K4 to think about another big instrument.
    Actually, only Americans from New Jersey have an accent. ;)

    Re: New five course mandocello

    Would live to hear it. I looked into a couple of advertised liuto cantabiles, but one outfit simply said "We don't make those." Wish they would not advertise them! I did not hear back from another...

    Re: Goichberg mandocello studies

    For those interested, I will be sharing some brand new solo mandocello music at the CMSA convention in October, including a forthcoming Mandocello Method book by August Watters. We talked about the...

    Re: Gaelic singing

    She also sings wonderful harmony in English (with Bruce Molsky); The Blackest Crow. My wife and I do this duet, but this performance is heavenly. A bit less Celtic, maybe more Appalachian, but still...
  7. Re: Concert aria for baritone and plucked orchestra

    [QUOTE=Martin Jonas;1726657]I asked Victor whether he minded if I tried this as an instrumental, giving the baritone part to solo mandocello.
    I object! The baritone part should be given to a...
  8. Re: Violetta (G. Occhio, 1911), Italian waltz

    OK, got it; I'll try it.
  9. Re: Violetta (G. Occhio, 1911), Italian waltz

    I would love to see your arrangement, especially with the mandocello part. Is that posted and I am missing it?

    Can't wait to get my hands and vocal chords on this!
  11. Re: Music for duets for me (mandolin) with my brother (mandola)

    I found these on the Virtual Sheet Music site, they would work with plucked or bowed; clefs are treble and alto (viola).

    I play mandolin and...

    Re: Mandolin classical literature

    Thank you Martin for posting the trio; Nice that it is in what I consider the correct clefs. I can read them all to a degree, I used to conduct from full orchestral scores, but when I pick up my K4...
  13. Re: Concert aria for baritone and plucked orchestra

    Me! I'm not that friendly, but I am a registered baritone. I sang the Bach Aria Mache Dich mein Herze Rein from St Matthew passion with the Oregon Mandolin Orchestra a few years back and have been...

    Re: Mandolin classical literature

    Let me know when you and the LC are ready for mandocello solo literature. It's not a long list, but it does exist.
  15. Re: Mandocello solo and duo recordings playlist

    Since Martin mentioned my search in the opening of this thread, I should clarify my mission. I am looking for (and have found!) music written specifically and originally for the solo mandocello. I...

    Re: We're not so weird...

    Want to see my collection of 100+ year old antique wooden hand planes? I have about 50 or 60, but I only use about 8 or 9, mostly moderns. Probably invested between 2 and 3 thousand dollars over many...

    Re: Help me use this diminished lick

    I taught "classical" music theory for years. When Tim Connel told me to use a "flat-ninth-without-root instead of a V7" I didn't know what he was talking about (I do now). The "root" is implied in...
  18. Re: Land of Living Skies by the Regina Mandolin Orchestra

    I love the addition of winds; I think mandolin orchestras in general need to think beyond the "string quartet" model and open up to more colorful and varied textures. A few years ago at Philly CMSA I...

    We all look forward to hearing the performance; hope it will be posted....?
  20. Re: Mandolins and Recorder Trio from CMSA 2018

    Nice work composer and performers, and a very nice blend of light instrumental sounds. I don't know how much is being done with wind instruments joining our plucked strings; only heard of a few...
  21. Re: MC Players of Irish Traditional Music - Feedback Wanted From

    I look forward to your future post; I teach research methods and supervise research, so when I see a study on a topic of interest I check it out.
  22. Re: Grisman "Shalom Aleichem" for Mando Orchestra?

    I'm used to name confusion. I get a lot of "Hoffman? Mr Hoffman?" "Jim..Hoff? ... -man?" I will check the website again, the semi-current Q blurb is the group that recorded the Americana album; there...
  23. Re: Grisman "Shalom Aleichem" for Mando Orchestra?

    I looked at some MMQ photos, Adam Rosco is not playing a Monteleone, which has a distinct curl in the scroll. Not sure what Adam's instrument is, a big F style but not a Gibson. So you must be...
  24. Re: Grisman "Shalom Aleichem" for Mando Orchestra?

    I WISH!
    No, Adam Roskowicz plays the mandocello in MMQ. I know Mike Marshall plays a Monteleone, and their website says "In the mid-1980s, Dana Rath and Mike Marshall created a quartet of mandolin...
