Mandolin Mondays #313 w/ Special Guest Marie Burou

Rating: 1 votes, 5.00 average.
This week on Mandolin Mondays we are joined by the amazing French mandolinist and professor Marie Burou playing this compelling rendition of "Les Deux Guitares" arranged for mandolin solo by Raphaël-Tristan Jouaville. Marie makes this Roman mandolin, Modele Martineau from luthier Brian N. Dean, really sing!

Marie Burou started playing the mandolin at an early age. She entered the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional de Toulouse in 2007, in Julien Martineau's mandolin class. She graduated in 2012. Passionate about arts, she also holds a Master's degree in History of arts and heritage.

Frequently performing as a soloist and as part of chamber music ensembles, Marie participated in some festivals, including Passe ton Bach, Festival de mandoline de Taormina en Sicile, Festival Lyrique des Pays Catalans, Musiques et Vins en Madirans. She occasionally plays for the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse, the Orchestre National des Pays de la Loire and the Opera de Lyon, for ballets, operas or symphony concerts.

She creates with the composer Raphaël-Tristan Jouaville the collective Kontakt that promotes contemporary music of 21st century. Marie always strives to expand the breath of her mandolin, exploring little known repertoires, trying out innovative arrangements and collaborating with contemporary composers on new productions. State certified, Marie Burou is a mandolin professor at the Conservatoire Henri Duparc (CRD).

This video was produced by AdixSon. The score for this arrangement will soon available here:

    Big smiles all around when she plays the 'almost corny' theme. I'm smiling too! And look how she holds the 'bowl back' mandolin. I'd drop the thing on the first position change. Brian's mandolin really sings in Marie's hands.
