Bookmark and Share

GRAMMY-nominated Avi Avital has been praised as a both an "enthralling and sensitive soloist" (Boston Globe) and a "convincing advocate for his instrument" (Wall Street Journal).  As the first mandolinist signed to Deutsche Grammophon, he has brought the instrument to entirely new audiences, building a fresh legacy for the mandolin through virtuosic performance and a commitment to commissioning new works and arrangements in a range of genres. On his new release - Vivaldi, he returns the instrument to its origins-the Venetian Baroque and master composer Antonio Vivaldi capturing the mystical spirit of Venice.
