Raffaele La Ragione

“The young Raffaele La Ragione is today to the mandolin what Gustav Leonhardt was to the harpsichord” (Le Monde). Born in Naples in 1986, Raffaele La Ragione has devoted himself to researching historical plectrum instruments and their original repertoire, to which he has dedicated numerous recordings.
In 2020, on the occasion of the 250th anniversary of the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven, he released his first disc for Arcana, Beethoven and his Contemporaries, which was favorably received by the critics: “Vividly performed and recorded disc” (BBC Music Magazine).
Since 2018 he has been part of the Orchestra Italiana of Renzo Arbore, the most famous Italian singer-songwriter and showman in the world, with whom he has made numerous tours and television broadcasts.
