Yes, mandolin! Yes, Bach!
The New York Times recognises Avi Avital for his “exquisitely sensitive playing” and “stunning agility” These gifts, and his commitment to expanding the expressive possibilities of the mandolin, are why Deutsche Grammophon will place him on the music world’s radar. What better way to begin than with Bach?
Israeli born, Italian trained, Avi Avital has won many competitions; his awards include Germany’s Echo. In 2010, Avi Avital was the first mandolinist to ever receive a Grammy® nomination for “Best Instrumental Soloist”. His Deutsche Grammophon debut is an all-Bach album recorded with the Kammerakademie Potsdam. Including transcriptions of the Violin Concerto BWV 1041, the Keyboard Concertos BWV 1052 and 1056, and a Flute Sonata in an arrangement for mandolin, lute, and cello. “Avital’s playing, which can be defined as ‘everything you never dreamt a mandolin could do’, was truly breath-taking in virtuosity and dedication.”
