The Santa Cruz Baroque Festival proudly announces the start of its 40th concert season! Season Concert I - 'Mandolino Barocco' on February 9 - features Hideki Yamaya and John Scyhneiderman, both known for their mastery of historic to modern plucked string instruments. The baroque-era 'mandolino' is not commonly heard on stage, but many of us are familiar with the sounds of bluegrass or Neapolitan mandolins (the 'taterbug'), or perhaps even the Ecuadorean 'bandolin', all of which are descendants of its baroque ancestor. A cousin of the lute with roots in medieval times, the mandolino became popular for solo playing and accompaniment in the 17th and18th centuries.
