Guide to the Sophocles Papas papers, 1900-1998 Sophocles Papas C0052
Sophocles Papas was an internationally known teacher of classical guitar. A Fairfax County resident later in his life, Papas taught the classical guitar in Washington, D.C. for nearly sixty years. He also taught at American University in Washington, D.C. Among his former students who have risen to fame are Charlie Byrd and Carlos Barbosa-Lima.

Papas was a prominent figure in the Washington music scene for much of his life. He performed live on radio regularly on WCAP and was a close friend to music legends, Andres Segovia and Carlos Montoya. Papas organized and conducted Washington's first guitar/mandolin/banjo orchestra, and founded the Washington Guitar Society. A prolific writer and publisher, Papas produced articles for scholarly music journals; wrote a column for the music magazine Crescendo; and founded Columbia Music Company, a publisher of sheet music and instructional methods for the guitar. Most notable among his publications is Method for the Classic Guitar. In 1998 Columbia Music Company also published a biography of Papas, Sophocles Papas: the Guitar, His Life, written by his daughter, Elisabeth Papas Smith.

The Cadenza, The Crescendo [Archive] - Mandolin Cafe Forum
I recently read Jeffrey Noonan's "The Guitar in America" and am now reading Scott Hambly's pHD dissertation "Mandolins in the United States since 1880: An Industrial and Sociocultural History of Form". In both publications, the authors make multiple references to and cite information from "The Cadenza" and "The Crescendo". I understand these were journals for the Banjo, Mandolin Guitar community in the United States.
Would anyone on the cafe know where a collection of these journals might be found in either physical or digital form? Would they be in the Library of Congress in D.C.?

Mandolin History
History of the Mandolin
In Brief

Mandolins evolved as part of the Lute family in Italy during the 17th -18th centuries, and the deep bowled mandolin produced particularly in Naples became a common type in the 19th century. The original instrument was the mandola ( mandorla is almond in Italian and describes the instrument body shape) and evolved in the 15th century from the Lute.

A later, smaller mandola was developed and became known as a mandolina. The 20th century saw the rise in popularity of the mandolin for celtic, bluegrass, jazz and classical styles. Much of the development of the mandolin from neapolitan bowl back to the flat back style is thanks to Orville Gibson (1856 - 1918) and Lloyd Loar, the chief designer for the Gibson Mandolin-Guitar Manufacturing Co Ltd.

Brunetto Bardazzi
Brunetto Bardazzi, nato a Prato il 19 maggio1877, diresse il Circolo Mandolinistico Pratese per quasi ventisei anni, fino alla morte avvenuta il 15 ottobre 1950. Il padre faceva l’antiquario ed era soprannominato “Ricciolo”. Brunetto aveva due fratelli: Leone, che suonava la fisarmonica, il mandolino e la chitarra e svolgeva il mestiere di barbiere; Ugo che suonava solo la chitarra. Il Bardazzi, musicista colto, si era diplomato giovanissimo in armonia, contrappunto, violoncello e si era specializzato in contrabbasso, mandolino e chitarra, studiando quest’ultimo strumento come allievo di Luigi Mozzani (1869-1943) e di Valentino de Zorzi (1837-1916). In gioventù intrattenne rapporti musicali con il grande mandolinista fiorentino Enrico Marucelli (1873-1901).
Bardazzi fece parte per molti anni dell’Orchestra del Teatro Metastasio in qualità di violoncellista e contrabbassista e collaborò con Attilio Nuti (1839-1903) col quale si era perfezionato in violoncello. Attilio Nuti, direttore d’orchestra e concertatore di importanti spettacoli lirici al Metastasio per oltre trenta anni, fu insegnante di violino nel “Cicognini” già dal 1863; nel 1896 fu chiamato ad istruire e dirigere la Corale “Guido Monaco”.

Welcome to The Unstrung History of the American Guitar!

The guitar is the voice of American popular music. How it got to be that way has a lot to do with Alpine yodelers, blackface minstrels and your great great grandmother. The blues and "hillbilly" string band music are the immediate ancestors of country music, R&B and rock & roll, but the guitar juggernaut that streaked through the twentieth century, and still is going strong in the twenty-first, was launched before the Civil War in urban parlors and on New York stages.

Join us for an excursion through the neglected nineteenth century, when “guitar fever” first seized America.
