The Ensemble Mandolinistico Estense uses Galli strings

Ensemble Mandolinistico Estense

The Ensemble Mandolinistico Estense was founded in Modena, Italy in 1997 with the intent to offer once again the rich and important tradition of music composed for plucked string instruments to modern audiences.  This repertoire was cultivated in this city throughout the 20th century, thanks largely to important contributions made by such local musicians as Romolo Ferrari and Primo Silvestri.
