Description: Modern works for “plucked-string quintet”: two mandolins, mandola, guitar and double bass. The flat mandolin of Ireland and the bouzouki of Greece are the basis of Mereu’s two works and Angulo’s suite reminds us how much Mexican mudic and its use of guitar in both popular and “serious” modes can seem to invite other plucked instruments. Morricone’s mordant little Serenata, which with its trudging bass line, could be describing a plodding, resigned character in a film, was written for these players. Ensemble Mereuer.
