Welcome to the web site of "Ensemble Gabriele Leone"

The "Ensemble Gabriele Leone" is a group of musicians whose goal is to promote music for mandolin. This group was founded in 1991 by a few dedicated people highly involved in this not-enough known instrument, with its multiple aspects.

Our repertoire starts with ancient music from 14th to 18th century, played on period instruments, continues with romantic and popular music, either from Italy or South-America, and moves toward contemporary music (we already played more than a hundred of pieces).

We play concerts all over France and Europe (we played in more than 100 concerts).
