All the Rage: Mandolin Ensemble Music From 1897-1924
Mandolin Ensemble Music from 1897 - 1924 Nashville Mandolin Ensemble Attention all lovers of string music, mandolins, and early American music!!! At the turn of the twentieth century, a sound lilted through the air of American music like nothing that had ever been heard before. It inspired one writer to call it “the true soul of music.” It inspired thousands of Americans to pick up instruments and form groups to create this sound for themselves. It was the sound of the mandolin orchestra, a sound the Nashville Mandolin Ensemble recreates on All The Rage, a sound as fresh and new today as it was in its heyday. The selections on All the Rage represent the monster hits of the classic repertoire of the mandolin orchestra — the equivalents of “Hound Dog” and “Johnny B. Goode” in rock music or “In the Mood” and “Take the A Train” in big-band music. The mandolin orchestra style could be and was applied to any kind of popular music-marches, dance pieces, and overtures. Dance and romance take center stage on All The Rage — polkas, waltzes (Viennese and otherwise), schottisches, galops, fox trots, and a lush arrangement of Saint-Saens’ “Mon coeur s’ouvre à ta voix,” (My Heart at Thy Sweet Voice) that puts the tremolo sound front and center for the listener to experience the voice-like qualities that only a mandolin orchestra can produce. It positively swoons. On All The Rage, the Nashville Mandolin Ensemble taps the source, the roots, the foundation of mandolin music in America, and the sound is every bit as unique and exciting as it was when it swept the country a century ago.
