    MAURO SQUILLANTE TO THE NETHERLANDS WITH BACH

    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.

    For more information ask Margriet Greydanus, e-mail: margreyd@gmail.com

    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.

    Happy to hear that, Bob. Which piece of mine are you performing? I am badly overdue with attending one of your wonderful performances again but things just keep getting in the way... We just got back from Boston/Cambridge yesterday, as a matter of fact, but our itineraries are always maxed out with obligations.

    Three cheers to you all!

    Baltimore Mandolin Orchestra concert tomorrow.

    This will be the BMO's first public concert with our new music director, Mark Linkins. The program will include a march by the orchestra's founder, a 17th century dance, a rumba, a tone poem by Baltimore composer Jonathan Jensen, and more. We will feature clarinetist Natalie Pucillo. She will start the program by performing Finzi's "Five Bagatelles" with piano accompaniment. Then she will join the orchestra in performing the Largo movement from Vivaldi's "Winter" from "The Four Seasons" and soloing in Manente's "Tramonto d'Autunno." The BMO's resident soprano, Beatrice Gilbert, will close the concert. She will sing a Schubert Lied and Mark Linkins's swing arrangement of Gershwin's "Summertime." Should be a great concert, so if you're in town on Sunday, stop by and see us and enjoy some refreshments after the concert.

    Thanks, Bob; the mandolin community is one of the most sharing musical cultures around. I already heard from Owen, and will be looking at and (I hope) playing some of his wonderful compositions soon. Funny thing, though, I tried the MundoPlectro site to purchase (I support artists!) but it would not let me enter "US" in my address--it insisted on Spain. As it happens I will be in Spain later in May--maybe I'll get the music then.

    You can order from MundoPlectro from the US but you need to do it by email. Send me an email and I will explain.

    Baltimore Mandolin Orchestra concert featuring lyric soprano Beatrice Gilbert on Sunday, May 5.

    For the fifth year in a row, the Baltimore Mandolin Orchestra will perform at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church on Sunday, May 5 (details below). This year we will be featuring lyric soprano Beatrice Gilbert. Ms. Gilbert is celebrating her 25th year singing with the BMO, and we will accompany her as she sings some of her favorite opera arias, Broadway tunes, tunes from popular movies and more. Ms. Gilbert will also be joined by pianist John Massa for several selections.

    Outgoing BMO music director Kristin Turner and current music director Mark Linkins will share the conducting duties at this concert, which will be Dr. Turner's last appearance with the BMO.

    Aside from accompanying Ms. Gilbert, the orchestra will play several instrumental pieces, starting with a march composed by the orchestra's founder, Conrad Gebelein. This concert will be performed in honor of Mr. Gebelein. As an added attraction, we are thrilled to announce that Mr. Gebelein's grandson, Wayne Gebelein, will join us, and he will perform a solo on guitar of one of his grandfather's compositions. Furthermore, some of our very talented youngest members will perform a movement from the Bach Double Violin Concerto - sure to be another real treat.

    Please come if you can! The concert is free (a freewill offering will be taken).
