    Re: Playing mandolin in duet with a harp

    You may find this old album, Tapestry by Alison Stephens (mandolin) and Lauren Scott (harp), inspirational. I love it. Both musicians were affiliated with Astute Music, mentioned above.
  2. Re: Lost in my search of a mandolin for classical music

    Late to this game, but I don't have much to add. To be mindful of top sinkage and do consult with a luthier about stability or repair. Don't be pressured into purchasing something that doesn't...
  3. Re: Scarlatti, K 513 for your winter gift giving

    Greetings, Joe. I sometimes get lost in the business of busyness . . . or busyness of business. After such episodes, catching up here is a little intimidating. Whatever. I'm glad to be back every...

    Re: Recording through the Bach Cello Suites

    Interesting and bass-rich choices, Harmon. I saw Hoppy perform an entire concert of Bach cello suites on German theorbo in Ann Arbor in 2013. Afterwards, we ate pie! I brought Hoppy to a concert...

    Re: Romantic lieder on mandolin and piano

    Of course, this was one of Jean Pietrapertosa's (1855–1940) schticks. I have one of his published collections of Mendelssohn and Schubert songs someplace.

    Wacky. Good thing that fingerboard is so thoroughly mapped! It's easy to get lost beyond that first-position f".

    Re: Emanuil Sheynkman

    I took a cursory dig at the accessible basement vinyl, but the Sheynkman LP in question wasn't immediately visible. It's probably still buried in a box someplace after our last move (seven years...

    Re: Emanuil Sheynkman

    I have his album Russian Folk Instruments: Mandolin. His performances are technically precise, but the arrangements are really strange, especially for otherwise familiar pieces like those by...

    Re: Sad news: John Goodin died yesterday

    Elaborating a bit, years ago, John was kind enough to send me the Greek album that he played on (Maria Zouves' With Flowers Crowned). When I used to send scores of my arrangements around by e-mail...

  24. Re: Canon in Augmentation and Contrary Motion BWV 1080

    FYI, no mandolin in sight but Hesperion XX's is an arrangement of which I'm quite fond.
  25. Re: Canon in Augmentation and Contrary Motion BWV 1080

    Yup, that one would match the piece/score to which I refer above.
