Music for films and new compositions for Mandolin, Strings and Guitar
A Neapolitan mandolin with violins, cello and a classical guitars providing lively background accompaniment in a small ensemble characterize Italy’s unique musical tradition. This is Luca Artioli Mandolin Ensemble. Italian music, like no other, has shaped our image of the mandolin and the strings.
Under the artistic direction of Luca Artioli, the Mandolin Ensemble and its soloists undertake a fascinating musical journey through Italy: the program contains film music by the Italian master like Ennio Morricone, Nino Rota, Nicola Piovani together with new and unpublished classical compositions for Mandolin, Strings and Classical Guitar written by Luca Artioli explicitly for this Ensemble that evoke exquisitely Italian images and atmospheres.
These classical compositions with Mediterranean rhythms and colours are masterfully performed by the virtuoso musicians of this ensemble, who paint a refined Italian musical watercolour with lively interpretations, elegance and refined musicality.
The repertoire includes the “SINFONIA DEL LAGO”, the “STAGIONI del LAGO”, the “SUITE MEDITERRANEA” and the “RAPSODIA NAPOLETANA” by Luca Artioli: his personal and passionate musical homage to his beloved homeland.
