    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.

    Carlo Aonzo Trio - "A Mandolin Journey"

    Friday, September 21 - 7:30pm – 10:00pm

    Tompkins Corners Cultural Center will present the Carlo Aonzo Trio, featuring Mr. Aonzo on mandolin, Lorenzo Piccone on guitar & vocals, and Luciano Puppo on double bass.

    Their presentation of A Mandolin Journey is a brilliant, bold and adventurous concert of a broad range of music - not only from their Italian roots, but also American and European ethnic and jazz compositions from David Grisman to Jethro Burns, Jacob do Bandolim and more.

    Aonzo says, "Often the mandolin has traveled in 3rd class, accompanying immigrants through seas and continents, inside cardboard suitcases to unknown lands. But wherever it landed it made its new dwelling by cleverly integrating with the local culture. This is confirmed by the different shapes and tunings that it took up within the various musical genres that welcomed it.

    "We present the Italian mandolin’s journey in its various traditional, renewed and reinvented aspects; a modern melting pot of music and culture. A musical map, sailing off from the strong foundations of our tradition towards other interesting and unexpected sonorous routes."

    Suggested donation is $20, students and seniors $15.
