Munier ❁ Adagio e Rondo ❁ Op. 176 ❁…

Op. 176 by Carlo Munier is the Adagio e Rondo. I have found a recording of this composition by a mandolin orchestra from Korea.

This piece has been composed for mandolin quartet or mandolin orchstra, but there is also a version for two mandolins and piano:

Ugo Orlandi – Mandolin / Great videos from the…

Ugo Orlandi has been the most famous classical mandolin player in Italy for the last 20 years. He has recorded many CDs and has played with many of the important chamber orchestras. Many years ago I have attended a workshop with Ugo Orlandi.

I have just discovered three new videos with Ugo Orlandi from a festival in Korea. I am very impressed by his relaxed playing and his way to hold the mandolin. He is sitting on his chair and holds the mandolin as if he would play in a standing position. By this his right arm is almost parallal and in one direction with the strings, a position that is optimal for the right hand picking.

But also his left hand moves arount the fretboard very easy – it is a pleasure to watch him play.

Enjoy the videos with Ugo Orlandi!

Bundang Mandolin Orchestra – Vita Mandolinistica in Korea

The Bundang Mandolin Orchestra from Korea has recently had its 9th subscription concert.

This is the only mandolin orchestra from Korea that I know. The orchestra plays a traditional style of mandolin orchestra music with traditional pieces and arrangements of popular tunes.

I have selected a piece by Dutch composer Joh. B. KokVita Mandolinistica – a piece that is well known in German (and Dutch) mandolin orchestras:
