Avi Avital - Vivaldi / KDFC: CD Of the Week

Bookmark and Share

Israeli mandolin master, Avi Avital has had a lot of experience transcribing music to fit his instrument since there is relatively little music written specially for the mandolin. In the case of the Vivaldi Mandolin Concerto in C, however, he has the pleasure of performing a great work in its original form. That being said, this new recording also contains a host of Avital's nimble transcriptions, from Vivaldi Concertos for lute, violin, and recorder, to a Venetian Gondolier song, sung by one of today's most popular tenors, Juan Diego Florez. As our CD Of the Week pick, we'll be featuring tracks from 'Vivaldi' throughout this week on KDFC: San Francisco.
