Register here

 

The International Mandolin and Guitar Accademia, directed by Maestro Carlo Aonzo, meets the famous French mandolinist and composer Vincent Beer-Demander and the flourishing mandolin tradition and culture of Corsica and gives birth to the ambitious and fascinating project of the Mediterranean Mandolin and Guitar Accademia which will take place in the wonderful town of Corte, the historical heart of the Beauty Island, from 25th February to 4th March 2018.

Why Corte? Read here about the historical mandolin heritage.

The musical repertoire proposed in this 1st Edition of the Mediterranean Accademia presents a voyage across original works composed for mandolin and guitar ensembles in the Mediterranean basin: the eclectic character of the program, which will lead us from Corsica to Spain, from France to Greece and Italy, wants to underline the strong correlation existing between learned music and popular music.

The Course suits players of any level: musicians, conservatory students, professionals, teachers, soloists and concert performers willing to expand and improve their own repertoire, as well as absolute beginners willing to approach the instrument for the first time.

Alongside the two artistic directors and mandolin teachers there will be the guitar Professor and concert player Sandrine Luigi and the local artists Ange Lanzalavi and René Vallecalle, well-known representatives of the Corsican mandolin scene, who will teach workshops and perform concerts.
