November Duo, 2005 (mp3)(pdf)
It's been a while since I found the time to put together something for this blog but last Saturday morning I had a chance to do a little more recording. This time I'm offering another duo from my Midwestern Mandolin Duos collection, one which defied all my attempts to think of a colorful title.
I've not been idle since the last post. I've completed two mandolin orchestra commissions: The Pleasant Peninsula for my friends in the Kalamazoo Mandolin and Guitar Orchestra and Poets in Time for the remarkable Fretworks group that Doug Back leads at the Baldwin Arts and Academics Magnet School in Montgomery, Alabama. I had a great time working on these pieces and they both will be premiered in the next few months.
In addition my Telemann for Mandolin book has been published by Mel Bay and I've received a lot of positive and friendly feedback about that.
