Praeludium

Solo classical mandolin music from baroque to contemporary.

Chris Acquavella delivers powerfully emotive solo performances that pay homage to their historical origins through his own uniquely personal mandolin voice.

David Grisman

This recording has SO many things to like that I must cherry-pick a couple of them….My heart was warmed by the performance from Bach’s Partita BWV 1004. Chris’ playing is uniformly excellent and, somewhere “backstage”, I could hear Ali humming along…In this, and in ALL works performed on this CD, there is artistry of the highest caliber, and mandolin-playing of the highest order.
