Arlington, Va. — Mandolin Moods, the newest recording from The Mandoleers has been released and is available for purchase from the group's web site.
A mandolin and guitar orchestra founded 1923, The Mandoleers were under the direction of Herman von Bernewitz from 1926 to 1993 when he relinquished the baton to daughter Karen.
For this recording the ensemble is led by David A. Ruppert who has served as conductor since 2000.
The orchestra's repertoire comes mostly from the golden age of mandolin orchestras, roughly 1880-1930. This music has been preserved by the von Bernewitzes and organizations that support mandolin orchestras, such as the Classical Mandolin Society of America, the Fretted Instruments Guild of America, and the Nagano Mandolin Orchestra archive. Two of the works on this recording were found in the Library of Congress collection.
