Hi there, Christos Rizos here with interesting new articles I think you should not miss.

I have been in contact with an impressive mandolin virtuosa  from Russia, Ekaterina Mochalova so I updated her entry in the Contemporary Mandolin Musicians database. It now includes her new bio, impressive pictures as well as a video of Ekaterina playing the dorma. Check it out, you will not regret it!

I have been monitoring Avi Avital from the early days of theMandolinTuner. Avi's latest recording with Omer Avital is just brilliant and you should not miss it. I strongly recommend attending one of his concerts, but for the time being, you can read about these concerts in my new article, "Avital meets Avital, now in Greece".

I also just updated my guide about mandolin strings. The guide is now greatly improved and has been redesigned as Frequent Asked Questions (FAQ). I am happy that Google search likes my article, so it is now the 1st result when searching for Mandolin Strings. Impressive.

Finally, I also posted a personal article. A photograph triggered me to do it, as it reminded me how I celebrated my birthday last year giving a concert with the orchestra MandolinARTE at a beautiful & large theater in Greece's second biggest city, Thessaloniki. It was amazing!

Cheers, thanks again, and I'll see you on the inside!

Christos
