GRAMMY-nominated Israeli mandolinist Avi Avital has just released Vivaldi, his third album on DG that returns the instrument to its origins-the Venetian Baroque and master composer Antonio Vivaldi. Avital captures the mystical spirit of Venice, shedding and schredding new light on Vivaldi's musical genius by performing his own transcriptions of the composer's works. He is joined on the disc by the Venice Baroque Orchestra, the ensemble's twelfth recording on Deutsche Grammophon. Avital and the VBO are also touring North America to promote.

Classical Guitar Alive's Tony Morris sat down with Avi to discuss the album and the mandolin. CGA is Syndicated throughout the US. Listen to the attached clip
