    For convenience... I don't get the "subplot" of people waking up in bed and rolling around. Very strange. Plus the editing of the video is a little erratic. I do like the music though bit would prefer an approach that supports the music not works against it. Please let me know if I am missing something here.

    I loved their Valentini album.

    Glad to see this was finally noticed. Where could a person go on the internet to learn about such music? Delightful group of musicians from our communication with them.

    I think this "dream" video was a special video for the kickstarter project - why not tell a story...

    Here is the more normal - non dream - video:

    A worthy figurative snapshot from their debut album of a couple years back:

    I did a quick search & did not see a thread. I'll search a little more thoroughly the next time.

    My comment was not meant to admonish you or anyone else for not seeing it here first. I simply find it amusing that we produce an awful lot of news and content that eventually gets discovered outside of here and brought back long after the fact, even by people who are here multiple times daily, at which point it becomes noteworthy, typically when someone makes what is interpreted as a strong opinion or positive/negative statement about it.

    I reviewed Pizzicar Galante's earlier Valentini recording previously in the CMSA Mandolin Journal and have a review of their Scarlatti recording in the next issue of the Journal (February 2020). Both are excellent recordings.

    That was good fun. I can imagine all the practice would invade their sleep. Or that's what I'm going with!
