  1. I just finished listening to the "Song of the Japanese Autumn" - it is absolutely stunning! I must admit that "Corelli's Mandolin" is what comes to mind whenever I hear the word "mandolin". I had no idea that an orchestra composed of mandolins, with an incredible composition, could produce such a moving experience. Louis de Bernieres captured this essence in his novel - no wonder the book evokes so many emotions.
