    I haven’t seen the pictures yet. Only some unfinished sketches right after the session. The exhibition will be opened in 21.02.2020 and I hope that somehow I can share these works with you. I’m also...

    Thank you! I'm a slow writer and don't always find right words quickly enough how to say it, but I really appreciate you words. Toomas

    I’d like to share with you an interesting experience with an unusual audience. The Traditional Exhibition of Portraits at “Rakvere Galerii”, (Rakvere, Estonia) is an event what takes place every...
  5. Re: New ideas in playing two voices on one mandolin.

    Thank you! I use “BlueChip TP40 1-R” (https://shop.bluechippick.net/tp40-1r/) between thumb and first finger and next fingers (mostly two of them) with little longer fingernails. This way of picking...
  6. New ideas in playing two voices on one mandolin.

    I started playing two voices on one mandolin in september 2019. Then it was music for two violins. Later I found that this technique suits perfectly for playing choir music for two voices. Here is a...
  7. Re: German romanticism or – Two voices, one mandolin

    Thank you Michael! My way of picking comes somehow from my background as a guitar player and I made a big step forward some years ago when I started to play german baroque violin music – Bach and...

  9. Re: German romanticism or – Two voices, one mandolin

    Thank you, Martin for sharing the link. Seems that german folk music is an endless story and there's a lot beautiful music to play and interesting to discuss about.

    I travelled in Germany last summer and bought a book of sheetmusic from a second hand bookshop in Munich at first as a souvenir - simple german folksongs and tunes of composers from the romantic era...

    Transforming Mazas Op36 No15

    Mazas is full of possibilities. Some changes in rhythmic structure in the bar gives a kind of funky groove to Mazas Op36 No15

  15. Re: Bach: Suite D-Dur (BWV 1007), Prelude

    There are many ways of thinking about motivation. On Bach era, most of the music for solo instruments was written not for performing but for the player him(her)self. So if I play in the street where...
  16. Re: Bach: Suite D-Dur (BWV 1007), Prelude

    Without you it would be only a fail in my computer and some shapeless thoughts in my head. You turned it into a performance and the better audience, the better performance. So thanks for all of you!...
  17. Re: Bach: Suite D-Dur (BWV 1007), Prelude

    I was workin’, and still do, on first Cello suites. Each of them were too green to record yet.
    But this day was really hot. And not only because heat is not very usual in this area, but looking at...

  19. Re: Developing techniques with Mazas: Etude Op.36 No.12

    Thank you! Mazas is full of possibilities. And also for fingerpicking. Fingers of the right hand move better when palm is higher and longer fingernails will help to balance the difference of sound...
  20. Re: Developing techniques with Mazas: Etude Op.36 No.12

    Cello Suites are great! I play first three of them (about a hour of pure pleasure). They are little easier than Sonatas and Partitas for violin.
  21. Developing techniques with Mazas: Etude Op.36 No.12

    Spent wonderful hours with J.F. Mazas etudes developing techniques. In my opinion many of these pieces sound much better on mandolin than played on violin.
    Here is one of them: Etude Op.36 No.12....
