Railroad Song – Yasuo Kuwahara and Carlos Blanco Ruiz…

Today a new fantastic mandolin video has been uploaded to youtube by Carlos Blanco Ruiz. The video shows a performance of Railroad Song, a composition by Yasuo Kuwahara, played by the composer himself on the mandolin and Carlos Blanco Ruiz on the guitar. It was recorded in 1999.

This is the first time that I saw Kuwahara play the mandolin, and he really knows what is possible on the mandolin – a fantastic showpiece of mandolin technique.

Don’t miss this video!!

Mandolin and Organ – Benny Ludemann

I found those two pieces for mandolin and church organ recently. Both pieces are taken from a recording with religious music which was recorded in the 1980s by Benny Ludemann (mandolin) and Klaas Jan Mulder (organ).

Benny Ludemann is a mandolin and guitar player from the Netherlands. He has made many appearances in radio and TV. He is teaching mandolin and guitar and has made a big contribution to the mandolin orchestra association of the Netherlands NVvMO

The mandolin part ist played with tremolo. Please enjoy this rare combination of mandolin and organ.

I have found one other video with Benny Ludemann from a TV show, Benny Ludemann plays the guitar in a piece named 24 Roses. This is the first video in the following playlist about Benny Ludemann:

O.P.M. for Flute & Mandolin / Orie Sato

Some time ago I have discovered the following video of an interesting composition for flute and mandolin by composer Orie Sato.

The mandolin part is played by Anna Torge. I have met Anna Torge at the international mandolin symposium in Trossingen in 2008. Anna Torge is teaching the mandolin and is developping a way to use the Suzuki method for the mandolin.
