My favorite pieces are the two compositions by J. Ph. Rameau, originally for the cembalo, but very well suited for mandolin and guitar. My other favorites of this concert are the Rhapsody by Japanese composer Keigo Fuji at the beginning of the concert and Mountain Moor by Stephen Funk-Pearson.

If you watch the video on youtube you can find the links to jump to each piece in my comment for the video.


Additional Information

Clara und Sophie kennen sich schon seit sie zwei Jahre alt sind und fast genauso lang machen sie auch gemeinsam Musik. Clara, die junge Musikerin, die das Instrument spielt, dass du nicht kennst – die Hutmacherin, die dir bis vor kurzem deinen Kaffee zubereitet hat. Die gebürtige Dresdnerin trieb es aufgrund ihres Studiums der Mandoline, an der Wuppertaler Musikhochschule, in die Talstadt. Sophie, die Deutschlandstipendiatin, verschlug es aus der Elbflorenz in die Klassikerstadt – sie studiert Gitarre in Weimar und engagiert sich dort in vielen sozialen und musikalischen Projekten. Trotz verschiedener Studienorte finden die beiden sich regelmäßig für gemeinsame Projekte zusammen, pendeln durch Deutschland und probieren sich und ihre 14 Saiten in verschiedensten musikalischen Konstellationen aus – zwischen Semperoper, internationalen Wettbewerben und Weihnachtsfeier im heimischen Schrebergarten. Für diesen Abend haben sie ein Best-Of-Programm der vergangenen Jahre zusammengestellt und nehmen euch mit auf die etwas andere Reise. Weg von spießigen Klassikkonzerten und rosaroter Singer-Songwriter-Attitüde. Besinnt auf das Essenzielle mit Hauch von Sehnsucht und Wohlfühlatmosphäre im Nirgendwo.

Additional Information

Release of Album Pickin’

Tommy Emmanuel, CGP and celebrated mandolinist David “Dawg” Grisman have joined forces on a new collaborative album entitled, Pickin’ – available in stores and all digital retailers on Friday, November 3. This marks the first recorded collaboration between these two acoustic titans and arrives on Grisman’s own label, Acoustic Disc. Pickin’ reflects on both Tommy and David’s signature classical, Americana, folk, and roots stylings, but it also artfully merges jazz rhythms, jamming, and unpredictability in the mix.
