A contemporary of Raffaele Calace, Giuseppe Manente (1867-1941) wrote numerous pieces for mandolin ensemble in a traditional, lyrical Italian style that are still popular with mandolin orchestras worldwide today. This composition, like many other fine works for this instrument strength, are found in the public Nakano Mandolin Music Collection brought together by the Japanese scholar, composer, guitarist and mandolinist Jiro Nakano (1902-2000). The "Rêverie de Poète" by Manente is beautiful example of a slow tempo composition that shows the beauty of sound created by a mandolin orchestra. Especially there where superb tremolo lines in the upper and middle voices are carried by carefully placed chords and bass notes the tremolo of the mandolin indeed comes very close to, perhaps even equals the singing voice of the violin.

The work is heard here performed by the Dutch Mandolin Chamber Orchestra HET CONSORT conducted by Alex Timmerman.

This video was made during a concert of the orchestra in the local Church, the 'GROTE KERK' in Meppel (Netherlands), October 2007.
