Album Notes
Al Fabrizio plays the traditional Neopolitan mandolin. His music appeals to young and old of every ethnic background with classic Italian love songs and European dances. He plays in the "tremolo" style which adds unusually warm expression and phrasing. His music creates an easy romantic listening mood which blends perfectly with candles, wine and pasta.

His CD entitled 'Serenata Italiana' is a selection of songs which transports the listener to the canals of Venice, the hills of Tuscany and the weddings of Sicily and provides "love potions" deeply felt from the heart... 'Santa Lucia,' 'Volare,' 'Summertime in Venice,' 'Godfather,' Innamorata,' to name a few.

'Serenata Italiana' has been receiving a remarkable response in sales, now in its third pressing. His second CD, 'Italian Heartstrings' was released in November, 2002.

Al (Anselmo) Fabrizio grew up in New York State with two musician brothers. His parents were from Abruzzi, Italy. He warmly recalls, 'I grew up hearing my mother always singing and harmonizing to the radio while and my father, with callused carpenter's fingers, occasionally would pick up the old mandolin made by my grandfather and magically fill the room with melancholy old songs from Italy. I'll never forget those sweet sounds.'

As a youth, Al played the oboe and clarinet. Later as an adult he was motivated to play the mandolin following the sudden loss of his brother, Raymond, a flute virtuoso. He felt music should continue with the family so he picked up his father's mandolin to honor Ray's memory and to celebrate with everyone the heart and soul of the songs he heard as a child.

Fabrizio is also the owner of Heartstrings Music, LLC., a recording and production studio in Mountain View, California with his partner, Hugo Wainzinger who is a gifted composer, musician and arranger from Argentina.

I love the mandolin and this CD is just what I was looking for. Great music. I love it and I am sure that I will be ordering more from you. The service was also very good.
Thank you

Great skill feeling for familiar italian classics
Beautiful CD. A nice arrangement of familiar classics. I too play the neopolitan style mandolin and was interested to hear more in the tremelo style. I am very happy with this find and it has inspired me to improve my own tremelo skills. Alll pieces are played with great skill and feeling, and I think this is how I want to one day play.

Best ever rendition of the Godfather theme!
This CD brought me back to the many times my uncles got together to play music while Grandma was in the kitchen making dinner for the family. Beautiful songs, beautifully played.

Fantastico Musicale
This CD brings back memories of family gatherings while listening to our favorite Italian music. The odors of Italian food cooking in the kitchen while the adults played an Italian card game called Cannasta bring back memories of my childhood in Central New York State.

Wonderful Italian music that reminds me of my great heritage!
This CD is one of the best Italian ones that I have ever heard. Being 100% Italian,it brought back fond memories from my childhood when my friend's grandfather would play the mandolin at family gatherings. My husband & I thoroughly enjoy listening to the CD while having an authenic ethnic meal .

Brought me back to Sicily!
Heard some mandolin music in Sicily on a recent trip. I bought this CD for our friends and fellow travelers to add to their memories. We loved the songs better than what we heard abroad. Fabrizio weaves absolute beauty with his mandolin.


Love this CD! Coming from a family of musicians, I grew up with this sound and many of these songs as a child ... brings me right back. Fabrizio and Wainzinger's arrangements are tasty and classy, Italian delicacies!
