Silvio Ranieri – Souvenir de Varsovie

S. Ranieri – Souvenir de Varsovie

Silvio Ranieri is best known for his mandolin method in four parts, and for his recordings from the early 20th century.

But he is also a composer of some interesting pieces for the mandolin. His compositions are not played very often.

I have found a beautiful video of “Souvenir de Varsovie” played by the Japanese mandolin player Katsu Chikako (勝千賀子).
