    At 1 and 2 July 2017 Maestro Mauro Squillante will come from Naples to the Netherlands! He will give two concerts with the title "Pensando Bach", in which he will play solo partitas and sonates of J.S. Bach, on mandolin, mandola in C and liuto cantabile.

    Mauro says about the concerts:
"Although Bach’s works have already been played by other mandolinists it is the first time that three instruments will be used in one recital: mandolin, mandola and liuto cantabile which is perfect for the sixth cello suite since it provides the same tuning as violoncello piccolo, the instrument it was written for. 
Except for the love of the music itself, my motive for playing Bach’s music on mandolin is also the love for the mandolin; by playing music of highest quality mandolin establishes it self as an instrument worth of respect just as any other. Moreover, playing highly polyphonic violin and cello pieces on a plucked string instrument with wisely chosen fingerings and dynamic nuances gives possibility of keeping the counterpoint and individuality of voices very clear which then illuminates expressivity of Bach’s music and also possibilities of mandolin."

    1 July 7.00 p.m. in Heerde
    2 July 3.00 p.m. in Den Horn

    Mauro also will give a masterclass and a workshop in Heerde. On the program Passacaglia Pizzicata by Victor Kioulaphides and Sonata K430 by Domenico Scarlatti, arranged for plucked ensemble by Victor.

    1 July 10.30 - 1.30 p.m. masterclasses
    2.00 - 5.00 p.m. workshop

    Sebastiaan de Grebber and Alex Timmerman are so nice to giving their assistance by leading the workshop the first hour. The result of the workshop will get a place in the concert that night.

    Ah, if only I could fly over like a bird... What was the line from that poem, "Ik zou een vogel willen zijn..."?

    Best of luck, friends! I will be in Athens until the 11th so I'm sorry to say I'll have to miss this one. Please keep posting your activities here and I'll catch up with you, sooner or later.

    Three cheers,
