NGP 1004 Sol Goichberg: Thirty-Five Progressive Mandolin Etudes, Op. 6
Sol Goichberg
Thirty-Five Progressive Mandolin Etudes, Op. 6 (1937)

Sol Goichberg (1908-1978) was born into a musical family, the son of a famous cantor in Chotin, Bessarabia. Although self-taught as a mandolinist, he had studied the violoncello at the Malcon Conservatory of Music in Boston, and received a thorough musical education in theory, harmony, and counterpoint. His performances as a recitalist, with various mandolin ensembles, and as a concerto soloist won him high praise from the New York music critics.

The THIRTY-FIVE PROGRESSIVE MANDOLIN ETUDES were first published in 1937 by the composer, and were his only works to be published in his lifetime. They are intended for intermediate students, and are excellent warm-up material. This edition was first published by Plucked String Editions in 1983 as PSE 010. That edition, and this one, are reprints of the 1937 edition with the composer's own fingerings and picking strokes, except that some corrections have been made and footnoted. Some new fingerings have also been added: Some to clarify the composer's intentions, and others to correct what were apparently copying mistakes. All new fingerings have been put in parentheses so that they can be easily identified as such. The music in this edition is the same as in the 1983 edition, but the composer bio has been expanded.
