Program Notes

Like many virtuoso soloists of his era, Mantia was also a composer and often wrote the solos that served as the vehicle for his prowess on the instrument. Many of these solos took the form of a theme and variations, frequently featuring popular melodies of the time. Perhaps the most enduring of these classic solos is Mantia’s variations on the Irish tune For All Those Endearing Young Charms. The well-known ballad was not only a showcase for Mantia’s beautiful sound and lyrical playing, but also a song perfectly suited to create an engaging set of increasingly complex variations, each designed to showcase Mantia’s amazing range, flexibility, and technical skills.

"Believe Me, if All Those Endearing Young Charms" is a popular song written in 1808 by Irish poet Thomas Moore using a traditional Irish air. Moore's young wife had been stricken and worried that she would lose her looks. He wrote the words to reassure her.
