For mandolin quartet/plucked string orchestra

  • Eric Satie's 1. Gymnopedie
  • New Zealand's most famous song: Pokarekare Ana. (Here is a video of the Braunschweig Mandolin Orchestra playing this piece.)
  • Yangguan Pass Song (阳关三叠 or "Three Variations of the Parting of the Friends at the Yangguan Pass"). This is a famous Chinese piece of music which I transcribed for solo guitar and plucked string orchestra. Originally the music was written for guqin (zither). My version is modern, but tries to maintain the Chinese pentatonic style. An electronic rendering of the sound is provided below (unfortunately Musescore does not have a mandolin tremolo sound). If you play this piece, I'd love to hear about it!
  • Five Minute Beethoven (a slightly humorous compilation for the Beethoven year)

For duos or trios

Sheet music for learning to play

Works in the public domain

From the archives of the Braunschweig Mandolin Orchestra. The works here should be in the public domain because their composers died more than 70 years ago and the publication was more than 50 years ago. My reason for posting these here is because it is basically impossible to find them anywhere else. If any of these are actually still copyrighted, please let me know and I will remove them.
