    Hi Martin

  4. Re: Mandolin sources in Yale University library

    Hi Martin

    Tempo is unclear, only the generic terms at the beginning of the pieces sometimes gives an indication. Sonata IV however doesn't have any indication of that order. I would likely go for...

  6. Re: Mandolin sources in Yale University library

    My pleasure; it's fun to contribute to both our knowledge of mandolin history and add some interesting items to the repertory at the same time. Not all of my work as musicologist is this rewarding. ;)

  10. Mandolin-piano sonata by Bolaffi (Firenze, ca 1789-1798)

    Hi,

    Once again my research into mandolin-related prints prior to 1850 turned up a little gem. I found a mandolin-piano sonata from Michele Bolaffi (Firenze, ca 1789-1798). It's actually quite a...

    Re: Walsh, Forty Select Duets

    Hi Martin,

    The Batoni painting also raised a few questions in my mind.

    Good news. The British Library has granted me a license to publish and in my circumstances even waved the fee.
