"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."
We mentioned the many talents of the young Croatian artist Sanius Verantius three years ago, and are thrilled to see her latest impressive project, a compelling multimedia presentation of Vivaldi's "Presto" (The Four Seasons).
This is Vivaldi like you've never seen or heard before!
Born Sanja Vrancic in Sibenik, Croatia, she started mandolin at age 9, was playing in the Mandolin Orchestra Kresimir in Sibenik even as a child. She's had the good fortune of some more formal training with Professor Ugo Orlandi in Padua several years ago. In addition to her university studies, she rehearsed regularly with the Mandolin Orchestra Sloga a couple times a week (more before a performance).
Her theatrical projects showcase her artistic potential, not the least of which, a fine mandolinist. We look foreword to hearing more from her in this side of the Atlantic.
