The Athenian Mandolin & Guitar Orchestra “Nicolaos Lavdas” organises the 2nd edition classical mandolin masterclasses with Ugo Orlandi, renowned Italian soloist and professor. During the masterclasses, both open individual and orchestra classes will take place, which will lead in a concert at the Castle of Kalamata on the 28th August. 

Ugo Orlandi is a musicologist, a specialist in the history of music, a university professor and internationally renowned mandolinist virtuoso. He has collaborated with I Solisti Veneti and Claudio Scimone, with whom he has performed around the world. He is considered to be one of the leading figures for the mandolin worldwide, working on rehabilitating the forgotten repertoire of 18th Century mandolin music and is credited on more than 30 albums of mandolin music, many featuring composers from that era.
