Artistic director & Founder

Mari Fe Pavón

Baroque mandolin

Cradled to the sound of the guitar since childhood, Mari Fe Pavón begins the study of the mandolin at a very young age with the teachers P. Chamorro and Caridad Simón and thus discovers a few years later the experience of orchestra and soloist in the orchestra of his city, under the direction of Pedro Chamorro. She also began studying guitar with Manuel Muñoz. She recorded her first record at the age of 15 with the same ensemble, and subsequently studied at the Conservatory of Alcázar de San Juan (Spain) and at the Conservatory of Music in Esch / Alzette in Luxembourg.

Mari Fe Pavón has appeared in concerts with musicians like Mstislav Rostropovitch, Estebán Sánchez,... Later, she studied with French guitarist Michel Sadanowsky in Paris and was a member of the "Trio de guitares de Paris". Also interested in the search for unknown historical repertoires, Mari Fe Pavón learns the baroque mandolin and thus discovers the historical interpretation. Very soon passionate about this experience, she studied with Prof. Marga Wilden-Hüsgen at the Hochschule für Musik Köln. She has concentrated his apprenticeships, research and musical practices on the diversity of sources, oral and written, which she deems necessary for recreating the early and Baroque mandolin repertoires today. At the same time, she founded several ensembles (Il Forum Musicle, Duo Muñoz-Pavón, Luxembourg Mandolin Quintet, Stage International en Alsace, Artemandoline) with Juan Carlos Muñoz and very quickly she gave concerts throughout Europe and the USA, Canada, Japan, Spain, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Greece, France, Italy ...) She is regularly solicited by the Philharmonic Orchestra of Luxembourg. She is also invited as a jury member in various international competitions: Luxembourg, Greece, Germany. She teaches mandolin, guitar and chamber music in Luxembourg. Mari Fe Pavón is co-founder of the ensemble Artemandoline, with the mandolinist Juan Carlos Muñoz.
