Description

Enigmatica on CD

The internationally renowned mandolinist Marilynn Mair directs the mandolin ensemble Enigmatica, comprised of the mandolin family -- four mandolins, two mandolas, and a mandocello. Their music delivers rich sounds of drama, intrigue, beauty and celebration. The Boston-based mandolin septet is part chamber orchestra and part plucked-string double quartet who have performed throughout New England since 2000. Enigmatica's 56 mandolin strings invite you on a tour of the world-from the silky beaches of Brazil ('Alma Brasileira') to the slow brooding sounds of Shostakovich's Russia ('Prelude in C'), spotlighting contemporary composers with a sound that is uniquely their own. On this, their debut CD, you will find Brazilian music, including the 19th-century choro that inspired the group's name; contrapuntal Baroque works by two master composers; and contemporary pieces, both popular and classical. The diverse repertoire and original arrangements showcase the mandolin in a chamber music setting.
