    Not only am I extremely impressed with her playing, she clearly understands deep in her heart how a mandolin or mandola or octave is to be played. I am unsure if she could teach how do to what she does.

    I'd agree on both counts, I think she mentioned on one of the videos, maybe an older one, that she had been playing for 20 years long enough, and started young enough, to have 'natural talent' coming out of her ears (and fingers).

    If she did a workshop over here I'd be in the queue though, might learn something by osmosis.

    She's amazing! Her covers aren't always a style I usually listen to, but her presentation makes me enjoy it anyway

    Olga Egorova is an absolutely phenomenal player! I like this video, where she makes herself sound like "about five people playing", in the words of a friend of mine.

    Sorry, the name of the music that she plays is "Diferencias" by our own Victor Kioulaphides. "To Oleander Flower" is the title of the poem recited over the music.

    Victor is a friend and a very talented composer. He also made some his sheet music available here including "Diferencias".

    It was confusing. It did seem like the name of the piece was "To Oleander Flower." I just wanted Victor to get the credit for the beautiful music he composed. Id does say that under the video on Youtube but loses it when we embed it here.
