Duetto Giocondo, which consists of Caterina Lichtenberg (mandolin/soprano lute) and Mirko Schrader (guitar/lute), today ranks among the top duos of its kind.
The artists first met as students of music at the Cologne Academy of Music and in 1991 founded Duetto Giocondo.
Mirko Schrader is a prize winner of numerous national and international guitar competitions. Apart from broadcast and television recordings, the two musicians have toured many European countries as well as the USA and Japan.
Four CD recordings of Duetto Giocondo are available so far at KOCH&SCHWANN.
