Program Information:
SC Baroque Festival's Concert II, The Natural Mandolin, brings the versatile and sought-after mandolin artist Caterina Lichtenberg to Santa Cruz in a concert showcasing the classical intersections of the instrument's history and travels. A member of the lute family, the mandolin originated in 1600s Italy. It became popular in mid-1700s Paris, found its way to Vienna by 1800, and on its travels through Europe influenced a number of well-known baroque and classical composers, such as Vivaldi, D. Scarlatti, Mozart, Beethoven, Hummel, and Paganini. By the 20th century it had become a well-loved folk instrument, featuring in American bluegrass and other styles.
A performer as adaptable and charismatic as her instrument, Caterina Lichtenberg has appeared worldwide as performing and workshop artist, showcasing the instrument's folk and classical music capabilities alike, as soloist and in various ensembles. Originally from Bulgaria, she now holds the only professorship of mandolin in Europe at the Cologne University of Music in Germany.
For the SC Baroque Festival Ms. Lichtenberg will appear in concert with Mesut Özgen playing 19th-century and modern guitars, as well as Linda Burman-Hall on harpsichord and fortepiano, together providing an evening of musical time travel with the mandolin at the center.

In addition to the concert, an exclusive artist dinner with Ms. Lichtenberg and Mirko Schrader will be hosted by SCBF on Friday, March 13. This event is a pre-concert fundraiser with limited reserved seating only. Contact the SCBF for more information.
