Gypsy Mandolin!: The Extraordinary Artistry of Howard Frye

Gypsy Mandolin!: The Extraordinary Artistry of Howard Frye

Howard Frye, a master of the classical mandolin, demonstrates his artistry in this recording of Russian and Eastern European music. Thought to be derived from the lute, the mandolin’s exact origin is unknown, but its recognizable sound can be found in both classical and traditional music in Europe, Asia, and North and South America. On this recording Frye is accompanied by a quartet composed of piano, accordion, percussion, and bass.
