    The work of Calace and the playing of Alison Stephens are (IMO), under represented in the musical universe.

    I am sure one or both of these cosmic injustices would have been avoided had Alison Stephens lived longer.

    Ugo Orlandi and Dorina Frati on mandolins.

    Being a fanboy amateur mandolinner, I get this very unique feeling when I play Vivaldi. It is how well it fits the mandolin. I get the feeling that Vivaldi really knew his mandolin and wrote the piece for the unique things a mandolinner would find fun to figure out and play.

    Friends tell me the composer's name is also spelled Prospero Cauciello.

    Here is a great piece by contemporary composer Victor Kioulaphides, written for Alison Stephens mentioned above. The player, Sebastiaan de Grebber, is stunning.

    My favorite part of the suit is the gigue, which starts at 8:03. I can play it, but nowhere near that fast.

    Here is a treat. I know Asturias (a.k.a Leyenda), by Isaac Albeniz, is kind of a war horse that many of the cognoscenti like to avoid, but it became a war horse because it is so darn beautiful.

    Here is the Kerman Quartet. So named for the luthier who makes their mandolins Arik Kerman. Kerman mandolins are considered by many to be among the best mandolins in the world.
