Yasuo Kuwahara – Beyond the Rainbow – Mandolin Orchestra…

Some days ago I have discovered the videos of a Spanish orchestra:  La Orden de la Terraza

This orchestra was founded in the region of Logrono / Rioja / Spain in the 70s. In Logrono every year a big festival of plucked instrument music takes place.

The performance of  Beyond the Rainbow by Yasuo Kuwahara has fascinated me immediately, and I had to listen to this for several times.

This orchestra plays excellent and very precise. The orchestra is composed of the typical Spanish plucked instruments bandurria and laud and guitars.

Yasuo Kuwahara was a Japanese mandolin player and composer. He has composed many pieces for plucked strings ensembles and also for mandolin solo.

More information can be found here: Yasuo Kuwahara

The orchestra La Orden de la Terraza has played several compositions by Kuwahara, you can find some information about this also on the homepage of the orchestra.
