    Well, just a caveat! Mick,
    I am enthused about this great collection of Italian American dance & band music. I love the genre, style, and heck, it's in my Sicilian roots. Giuseppe Tarantola was a virtuoso clarinetist. Those of you who downloaded my Bb archive will find a couple titles played on the CD. If it's great mandolin playing, however, you might be disappointed. Catalano plays the mandolin and it isn't very prominent. Tarantola composed 80% listed on the CD tracks (a couple titles claimed may not actually be rightfully his). The clarinet the lead voice throughout! Nonstop! That said, you can learn a lot from the skilled musicianship on the CD.

    I need to correct what I said in post #296. It is Jo-Anne Tarantola Glennon who is the niece of Giuseppe Tarantola, not Prof. Fugazzotto. Again, compliments to the Tarantola family for taking good care of the family's treasures.

    Thanks, Sheri. I am very interested in hearing the group play. While it would be cool to hear more mandolin from the era, I am excited to hear these pieces played under any circumstances. Besides the enjoyment (and historical significance) it helps me to hear phrasing, pacing and the arrangements as well. Looking forward to reading the story as well.....

    Just when you thought there might not ever be another complete Trio...
    And an up-to-date new INDEX attached with latest corrections etc. It is only about 25 pages...so don't print the full 40-something pages.

    You'll find them housed with their publisher
    Tesio:
    Rigoletto selections TRIO compiled by Canoro
    Carmen selections TRIO
    Cardilli:
    Pagliacci selections TRIO
    Pagani:
    Graziella polka (Tarantola's great polka dedicated to his wife) TRIO arr by Pignoloni
    Di Bella:
    Faust selections TRIO
    Elvira polka (better copies) M1 & G

    2 more : Poet and the Peasant TRIO and La Traviata Trio (Both TESIO)

    Please use this complete, updated PDF as attached; the other one was missing a couple of the new operatic entries. This excel PDF is 27 pages long. It is the one to download for reference. Thank you for your patience.

    All sheet music is not created equal, some are cribbed very nicely and others are more nuanced.

    I've just uploaded a complete trio of Cavolicri's "Elvira" polka from Tesio's music catalog. Now you can compare/contrast the attributes against several editions from other catalogs. Tesio was careful to include dynamics. Most of the other editions don't bother with this at all. Cardilli and Grauso published "Elvira" with same intro as Tesio's but no dynamics (except for one "forte" in the B section). O. Di Bella published "Elvira" without an introduction; however, note that out of all these editions, it's the O. di Bella edition that shows not only dynamics, including hard attacks and accented notes but he also includes expressions such as "crescendo." Kudos to the big "O" di Bella. But if you're going to steal, why not include the intro? Hmmm

    Find new "Elvira" in the Tesio folder.

    Attached updated Excel spreadsheet with today's addition.

    This link takes you to the Miscellaneous file where I have just added
    Bacio D'Amore by G.M. Messina. There are no chord symbols or any other
    parts to offer now but the harmonic progressions are predictable and
    I think most people with a good ear will know where they should appear.

    Hope your summer is going really well. Have fun, Sheri~

    NEW!! Method Book Folder
    https://www.dropbox.com/sh/uapraiupj...rq2Pwg2Ia?dl=0

    In 1912 Mauro V. Cardilli published Flaminio Pignoloni's Method Book. It is bilingual. I'm sure
    y'all will enjoy the instruction and diagrams using solfeggio.

    I apologize as I was unable to convert JPGs to PDFs. I think it had something to do with the fact that
    I used the mobile's camera. For the life of me, if anyone out there can convert these pages to a PDF folder,
    please PM me and send it to me so I can remove the individual jpg pages (all numbered).
    The booklet is about 30 pages.

    Have a Happy Fourth of July!

    P.S. I'll post another method book after the holiday.

    I just uploaded a second Cardilli publication to the Method Books folder. It is a method book (a pamphlet really) by N. Gavitti. A bi-lingual text published in 1910 on Bleecker Street. While it is only a dozen pages (with late Victorian pagination using Roman numerals), it shows Cardilli as a forerunner to much that was happening in the Italian music publishing community in New York City.
    Kudos to Mauro V. Cardilli!

    just dribs and drabs for now.

    Celebre Toreador (complete trio arranged by Pignoloni) now resides in Pagani folder
    Un Bacio D'Amore (complete trio composed by L. Iguri) resides in De Stefano folder

    I'll add these to the excel spreadsheet but for now you know where to find them.

    Are you ready for a considerable addition to the archives? I've been busy with finishing my book but there will be a few dozen PDFs added to the archives. During San Gennaro festival in New York City, a friend found a stash! and there's more coming. I even bought a Tesio mazurka on Italian Ebay. Hope you're ready for some fun. Is anyone playing any titles at the CMSA convention? I won't be able to attend but would love to know. Thanks, Sheri~

    Many thanks, Sheri -- much appreciated as always!

    Two of the links you have posted go to the same Dropbox folder: "MISCELLANEOUS PUBLISHERS" and "METHOD BOOKS" -- I think the method books link is wrong.

    A few more stragglers will be added soon to complete some trios. Please everyone, before the holidays grab your attention, get a Drop Box of your own. Many are free, some have a minimal monthly charge. Then you can organize it with the suggested publisher folders, have it on your iPad for easy referral. This Italian legacy must be preserved and you can help to do that. Don't think that others are doing it! Do it yourself!
