    Default Russian Rag for quartet?

    Can anyone out there help me find a version of "Russian Rag" arranged for classic quartet (m,m,ma,mc.)?

    Mark, at the mandolin symposium site there were downloads of all of the parts. There are more than 4 parts but many of the parts ( m3,4) were reductions. (easier to play) I think it is still up.

    Is there a part for the mandola?

    I have a version for 2 mandolins, mandola, guitar and double bass. It was sent to me by a friend in Italy. It's a bit different from the Mandolin Symposium version. I think it's the one played by the Raffaele Calace Plectrum Quintet in this cd.

    Oh, and it's in Finale 2008 format.
    Send-me a PM and I can sent it to you by email.

    Mark the symposium site ishttp://www.mandolinsymposium.com/downloads.htm

    Not sure about a dola part. I guess dola or gtr could play chords. There were a few mandolas at the symposium. Not sure.

    Mark we played it at the symposium this year "en masse". about 120 members but i would think it would work for 4. Here is a link to some videos from the final concert. Mostly student groups but the russian rag is in there. Notice all the great mando players near the front. Conducted by, Mike Marshall. http://www.mandotunes.com/mandosym/mandosym2009/

    I would also like to point out the wonderful performance of Msrs. Julin, Marshall, and Grisman.
    "Mr. Natural" is a great tune!

    Mr. Davis,
    Were you able to find sheet music for Russian Rag? I've tried to find it myself, but the symposiums "download" page cannot be found. Anywhere else you might say I should look? Thanks for the help.

    Try here for the piano sheet music
    http://webapp1.dlib.indiana.edu/inha...&queryNumber=2

    If that doesn't work, go to http://webapp1.dlib.indiana.edu/inharmony/welcome.do
    then enter russian rag in the search box at the top.

    Enjoy!!
