"He's handsome, he's fun, he's poised and refined, and plays with clarity and virtuosity beyond his years," says artistic director Paul Dyer of Israel's talented performer and composer Avi Avital, who will play with the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra for their second twenty fifth anniversary concert in May, 2014.

Avital is best known for his interpretation of well-known Baroque pieces and folk songs, many of which were originally written for instruments other than a mandolin. He is considered one of the emerging young superstars of the world stage right now, playing his chosen instrument of choice with a clarity and professionalism that belies his years.

Avi Avital is "… a brilliant musician who has re-imaged the world of the mandolin" Paul Dyer noted, when talking about how he had chosen the emerging young virtuoso player to be on the orchestra's 25 Anniversary year program. Together they will ‘celebrate the mandolin, the chameleon of the music world, with a captivating journey of beauty and romance'. READ THE FULL Culture Concept Circle ARTICLE.
