J.S. Bach, Suite for violoncello solo, performed on mandola(2016)
My arrangement of this iconic piece for mandola, an interpretation project that emerged from my work leading a mandolin orchestra at ETSU. This particular recording was facilitated by the discovery of an instrument donated to our department, a 1920s Gibson mandola. This fabulous instrument gave me the voice with which I could articulate the way I heard this piece, one that I have turned over in my head and hands since I was in high school.
