    Sorry, Sheri, but I can't direct download the trios. I think this happened to me once before. I don't remember how it was solved.
    Any help, thanx.

    This is the O. DiBella link. Confirm if it works or not.

    You should be able to view, download, and comment on any of the individual titles in this folder.

    Works for me, Sher. Thanks!

    I didn't know there was a 2nd mandolin part for Dolce Aprile. Nice.....

    Thanx again, Sheri, yes all good. Continued praise for your work.
    I don't think I've been diligent enough keeping up with all the down loads. I don't know If I've scooped them all up or not. Sometime I'll have to carefully check.
    Back when I was doing the Italian Mandolin group gigs (Duos,Trios, etc) in Chicago, I made copies of the collection of tunes we played. Some of them are the same ones you've been posting. You have many we did not have in our book. I've thought I should check if I have a couple you don't. I doubt it, but some time I should take the time to check. So far I've not shown your dedication.

    Glad you were able to view and download.

    Yes, please! the whole purpose of this Drop Box is to make everything available that still exists in its original 'wrapper.' If you have any titles that are not on the mandolin trio Index (updated two days ago) then, by all means, scan the cover and inner pages as separate jpgs using at least a 300 dpi for each sheet. THANK YOU! I can post the folder with the publishers' listings if you need to check on a title. That might help but really all you need to know is what already exists in my Index.

    If you email jpgs, I'll convert to PDFs and upload to the Drop Box. By doing that, I can improve the quality of the original scan so they're more readable. It has been probably more than four years since I first started doing this and you would be the first person to contribute (outside of myself and Normanno Giorno).

    - - - Updated - - -

    Dolce Aprile (which one? Gioč or Canoro?) are complete trios. You should see M1, M2, & G.

    Thanks, Sheri. Yes, I see all three trio parts for DA. I had learned the M1 part (maybe from your MM book?) which I believe has the Gioč arrangement. Didn't know these other parts were available. Thanks!

    The Index just got a good scrubbing. Please download the latest PDF of the Mandolin Trios as attached here.

    Here's what's new:One NEW title in MISCELLANEOUS FOLDER: (A Walk in the Forest);

    I'm happy to welcome Chris Stetson and Joe Binder (MandoPops) who contributed NEW! titles to various folders. A new title in Paolilli folder (Ricci Biondi); the Di Bella folder has two new titles (Mama Fany) and (Villa delle Fate); and P. Tesio folder has an early NEW title (Full of Life) with a M1 transcription by Chris Stetson.
    THANK YOU to Joe and Chris!!!!!

    It has been a while since I listed all the links to the Drop Box in one place. I strongly urge everyone to download the contents. I can't guarantee that the Drop Box will always be available for perusual. It's important that if you plan to perform, arrange, and share the titles that you have your own Drop Box to maintain files. The more of us doing this, the better the chance of its survival for future generations. We must ALL do our part.

    I've been trying to record my piano rolls. I've got much more to do but have had to reprioritize as my book is coming to fruition and I've begun working with my book designer. That said, please visit the Piano Rolls folder to listen/download a nice collection. I've attached a piano roll Index to be used with that folder's contents.

    Lastly, please visit the METHOD BOOKS folder to download these useful instructional books. LEARN TO READ MUSIC! NOW! Anyone can learn to read music! DO IT! Don't be left behind.

    Again, if you find anything out of whack or if you can't find something, I would appreciate your sending me a PM or posting here so I can fix it.

    The story of Italian mandolinists is not only about instrumental music in the form of trios but the mandolin always appeared with a vocalist in Italian theater. That's why if you're interested in the versatility of how the mandolin was utilized during the vaudeville age and beyond, just as it starred on stage with so many Neapolitan singers at the Piedigrotta, you will want to revisit the MATACEA folder and I've listed the Neapolitan and Folk Song folder, too.

    Thanks to everyone again for supporting this music in appreciation for the composers' considerable talents!

    I forgot to include the accordion sheet music. There is an Index attached for what's in this forder. And while you will find familiar mandolin composers and titles, much of this is accordionists who composed

    ACCORDION:
    https://www.dropbox.com/sh/tnp17l9j6...P52_tlQ3a?dl=0

    Bb CLARINET & Bb trumpet etc etc. The Index is attached. These titles correspond with the mandolin trios and with concert band arrangements.

    Sheri, I’m so glad & proud that I could contribute in a small way to this historic Italian Mandolin archive. You did a superb job of cleaning up the old copies I sent you.
    Continue the fine work.
    Thanx,
    Joe B

    So sorry but I was going over the last announcement and I realized I forgot to mention a new title in Gaetano Leone's folder:
    "A Volo di Farfalla" This mazurka should flutter with zest and precision! Not an easy one. Those of you who mainly dwell in the Italian classical world will appreciate it.Geluso proves,once again, that this dance music is on the cusp of the classical and should never be considered as just simply little ditties. The opening arpeggiated, scalewise cadenza is a delightful cascade of the butterfly's personification of the mandolin. It reminds me of the accordion equivalent: Flight of the Angels. I see some similarities.

    A subsection of my chapter on Maestro Pietro Tesio has been published by CUNY. If you click on the link, it will take you to a page where you can order Issue 8.1 (Individual Copy). All proceeds go to Italian Studies research at the university.

    My book is coming to fruition and when it does, I will be advertising it
    on Mandolin Cafe! Thanks, Scott!!

    https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ai5w4idsh...-4eq3D1Ra?dl=0 PLAYER PIANO ROLLS

    This folder contains ONLY Player Piano rolls as MP4's. Some are familiar mandolin favorites, others were composed for mandolin accompaniment and voice (usually tenor). This folder contains an updated PDF Index of the new titles added today.
    Keep in mind that each roll dictates how fast/slow. Often it can be too slow. These are just fun to hear. "Tesoro Mio" is a new title here. The introduction is one full minute before the waltz begins. Rather Victorian in is long drawn ou intro but worth a listen.

    Sheri,
    Thank you soooo much for sharing these works. I hope to wade in and learn one or two of the Italian mazurka tunes, as I just inherited one of my uncle's mandolins and he played them all the time.

    P.S. - When I find the official Thank You button, I'll hit it!

    Saving the history of Italian mandolin music, one piece at a time. It starts to add up! and when a new friendly mando cafe user arrives, I like to make sure s/he is welcome! Enjoy!

    Four years ago I uploaded the first batch of ballo liscio dances! Little did I know where it would go or how much interest there would be in this century old music. 95,000 + visits later, I'd say that there might be some interest out there. Thank you to Scott and to everyone around the world who has downloaded this music!

    The complete "trio" of De Stefano's "Valse Eternamente" (De Stefano folder) has been uploaded; it actually is a quartet: contains M1, M2, M3 and G
    De Stefano reissued this evergreen...with such a lovely cover sheet, too.
    I've updated the Index--see attached--to reflect this change.
