    I thoroughly enjoyed both pieces; that No. 9 'Allegro' from Opus 57, and Minimalism Game -beautifully played. 10 string 'cello?

    When I proposed a mandocello workshop at the CMSA convention a few years ago, people told me there was no music for mandocello, only transcriptions. Mandocello was largely thought of as providing an orchestral part or quartet cello "substitute."
    I found several composers to the contrary who offered their solo mandocello works for the workshop. Since then August Watters has published his excellent Progressive Melodies for Mandocello, CMSA saw 25 mandocellos at the 2019 convention, and Fabio Giuduce will return for the 2020 virtual convention's mandocello workshop.
    This new publication by Florian Klaus Rumpf will keep the repertoire growing in depth and breadth, and elevate the artistic and musical possibilities for this wonderful instrument. I'm signing up, Klaus, just hope my late-in-life-beginner skills are up to the challenge. THANK YOU so much!

    Some good news for Florian on his Calace project on his Instagram today:

    Yesterday I cracked my second funding goal with my project “A Year with Raffaele Calace”. The next goal is to finance the suitcase that I load with music stands, CDs, sheet music, instrument stands, etc. at concerts.

    I am very happy about so many people who support my project and me. 🤗
