Music for Play – Claudio Mandonico – Compositions for Mandolin Orchestra

Claudio Mandonico is a composer from Italy. He has composed some of the most played modern pieces for mandolin orchestra. Especially his suite “Music for Play” is a great work that’s fun to play and also great to listen to. The “Suite Spagnola” includes typical Spanish music like the Habanera and the Pelota. The Jazz Rock Pop Suite includes three movements, especially the final Stomp is a great piece for encores.
