Editorial Reviews

Product Description

It is unusual to make a soundtrack for a series of books, but music--particularly music for guitar and mandolin--is everywhere in the novels of Louis de Bernières. On this CD, guitarist Craig Ogden and mandolinist Alison Stephens play music that the characters in the books either play or discuss. The pieces that relate to Corelli's Mandolin include a version of Vivaldi's Concerto in C, arranged for guitar and mandolin, and an excerpt from Hummel's Concerto for Mandolin in G Major. The most interesting pieces are by Calace, Persichini, and Palumbo, three composers who wrote for the mandolin in the late 19th century. Classical mandolin was extremely popular during that period, until it was eclipsed by the guitar in the 1920s. Composers such as these wrote beautiful music that was forgotten when the public's taste in instruments changed. The South American trilogy is represented by solo guitar pieces by composers like Villa-Lobos, Barrios, Llobet, and Lauro. The only mandolin-guitar duet in this section is the charming arrangement of a folk tune called "Mis Dolencias." Ogden and Stephens are both fine musicians and they do an excellent job in playing this delightful music. --Michael Simmons

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Philip Bellshaw on April 11, 2000
Format: Audio CD
An essential companion to "Captain Corelli's Mandolin". Hearing the music on this CD really brought parts of the story to life for me, and I feel confident that anyone who enjoyed the book will derive pleasure from this disc. Hear the polka with which Corelli impresses Pelagia and the concerto he plays to Dr Iannis (after irritating him by insisting on tapping out the orchestral introduction, played here on the guitar). All of the music is taken from or inpired by the novels of Louis de Bernieres, but it would be wrong to think that this is an album only for literary fanatics - there is a tremendous range of styles, and the listener's attention is held throughout on purely musical grounds. As someone who had never heard solo mandolin music before I was pleasantly surprised by the dynamic and tonal range the instrument produced. Alison Stephens gives a virtuoso performance of relatively unknown music which deserves a much wider audience. There is also classical guitar music (sensitively played by Craig Stephens), most with a Latin American feel, and some very succesful arrangements for guitar and mandolin (the Hummel and Vivaldi concertos), as well as some more familiar tunes. The beautiful short pieces by Perichini, Calace and Palumbo (all recorded for the first time here) are particularly worth hearing. This is a CD I have returned to over and over again, and I would recommend it unhesitatingly
