Talentos – Trio Hamilton de Holanda (10-string mandolin), Marcos…

Trio Hamilton de Holanda, Marcos Suzano e Jaques Morelenbaum

A TV show from Brazil with Hamilton de Holanda (bandolim), Marcos Suzano (pandeiro and percussion) and Jaques Morelenbaum (violoncello).

Hamilton de Holanda is one of the best bandolim players from Brazil. For this show he is accompanied by cello and percussion. I like the possibilities of this group very much. They play compositions of some famous Brazilian composers like Dorival Caymmi, Baden Powell, Egberto Gismonti and others.

O Talentos registrou show histórico de lançamento do trio Hamilton de Holanda (bandolim 10 cordas), Marcos Suzano (pandeiro e percussão) e Jaques Morelenbaum (cello). Os três gravaram CD ao vivo em Brasília, em dois dias de gravação. No repertório, Dorival Caymmi, Baden Powell, Egberto Gismonti e outros grandes compositores brasileiros.
A ideia nasceu em uma participação especial de Suzano em um show do ‘Hamilton de Holanda Quinteto’ em Curitiba. A parceria se concretizou no Festival de Jazz de Barcelona no final de novembro de 2008 e depois seguiu para Itália e França. O resultado foi tão elogiado que os músicos resolveram gravar um CD juntos. No início de 2009, em um encontro casual pela cena musical carioca, Morelenbaum juntou seu tempero ao duo, formando o trio. “O trio é de uma nacionalidade única, nunca vi esse tipo de formação, dá um ineditismo, e isso é bom pra gente, é bom para o público”, vangloria-se o maestro.

Italian Old-Time Trio – Traditional Italian Mandolin Music

The Italian Old-Time Trio plays traditional Italian mandolin music with mandolin, guitar and double bass. It  is one of the few ensembles that still plays the traditional Italian mandolin in Italy, the homeland of the mandolin.

Last year the trio had been invited to the 8th Korea Mandolin Festival. Several videos of their performance in Korea are available at youtube. The sound in those videos is quite impressive, I think that the sound has been enhanced with at least some reverb. There are some other videos made in Italy recently with a more natural sound. The first one is a piece by Giovanni GiovaleIdillio Primaverale:

Idillio primaverile (G. Gioviale) – Italian Old-time Trio

The Italian Old-time Triob specializes in traditional Italian dance music composed during the late 19th and early 20th century for mandolin, bass and guitar. The Trio is comprised of three professional musicians from Rome, Fabio Menditto, Angelo Ercoli, and Fabio Refrigeri, who come from diverse musical backgrounds. They are dedicated to performing for modern audiences the live, complex, tradtional dance music of waltzes, polkas, mazurkas, and tarantellas that dominated popular music in Italy before recordings came into existence. The trio has performed widely in Italy and abroad. This video was recorded at the John Felice Rome Center on September 29, 2009, hosting “Sacco and Vanzetti Vivono: Their cultural legacy in film, music and history”.
