the definition of virtuosity

"When I first picked up my father's old bowl-back mandolin, around the age of three, little did I know that I was committing myself to a lifelong odyssey with the instrument." So begins Peter Ostroushko in his notes to this epic and wide-ranging album of tunes and compositions gleaned from history celebrating the illustrious mandolin.

An acclaimed virtuoso fluent in all genres of the repertoire, his stunning performances here on mandolins, mandola, mandocello and bazouki glide effortlessly through old-time folk and bluegrass, classic American parlor standards, Swing Era jazz, Bach, Beethoven & Vivaldi, New and Old World tunes (Brazil, Ireland, France, Italy, Ukraine, et al.) and great original Ostroushko compositions.
