life and work

At first she devoted herself to the guitar , with which she already performed in concert as a teenager. She studied at the National Music Academy Juan Pedro Esnaola with Silvia Fernandez and Gabriel Schebor , where she graduated as a state-recognized music teacher. She has lived in Europe since 1997. She began to study lute at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis (SCB) in Basel . She graduated from Hopkinson Smith's class in 2001 as a soloist . Afterwards she acquired her position as a soloist with Tiziano Bagnati at the Conservatorio Benedetto Marcelloanother academic degree.

She has accompanied well-known soloists such as Jordi Savall , Andrea Marcon , Giovanni Antonini and Sir Simon Rattle as a continuo player in their performances and has participated in around 30 CD productions. In the meantime she has devoted herself mainly to the lute solo repertoire, partly in collaboration with other music ensembles such as the Ensemble Zefiro under the direction of Alfredo Bernardini or the Monteverdi Choir under Sir John Eliot Gardiner .

Through the selection of her listed and recorded works, she expressly refers to the oeuvre of Johann Sebastian Bach and Sylvius Leopold Weiss , whom she describes as the "last of the great lute players" and to whom her lute book has dedicated. It contains works by largely forgotten composers from the late 15th to early 17th centuries.

Evangelina Mascardi is a frequent guest at festivals to pay tribute to the literature of the 16th and 17th centuries with her live performances. In the 2010s she began teaching lute as a major at the Conservatorio Antonio Vivaldi in Alessandria . She is also the artistic director of the early music courses Ottaviano Alberti in Orte . She was also a visiting professor at the University of Music and Theater in Munich .

To support a solo instrument, for which there is relatively little classical literature, she is involved through membership in interest groups for this musical genre. For example, since 2000 she has been a member of the scientific committee Convegno internazionale di Chitarra for the promotion of guitar music in Milan and since 2021 on the active board of the Italian Lute Society .
