  • Definition of a gentleman…one who knows how to play the (delete as per) mandolin, banjo, bagpipes but choses not to do it in public.
    The poor chap seems to be like Larry Adler-startlingly talented on something with very limited appeal.

  • Chris Thile wrote a terrific mandolin concerto about a decade ago. Audience video on YouTube of one of its rare performances.

  • But this is a very nice, folky piece, with Middle-Eastern references. It’s a relief that sometimes also something nice comes from that region.
