Carlo Munier: Capriccio Spagnuolo op. 276, Duo Trekel-Tröster, Mandolin + Guitar – tMt TV #86

This is a nice performance, with brio and good timing from Steffen Trekel. Carlo Munier (July 15, 1859 – February 10, 1911) was an Italian mandolinist who advocated for the mandolin’s acknowledgement among as an instrument of classical music. Maestro Silvio Ranieri in 1925 described Munier as one of the principal pioneers in the revival of the mandolin repertoire – a repertoire that with Munier began to move away from the limitations of the popular style (waltzes, serenades and fashionable marches) in order to approach the “art music” forms.
