Mandolin + Mozart’s Jupiter
Mozart is synonymous with jaw-dropping ingenuity, and his final symphony sets off a musical fireworks display the likes of which had never been seen before. The “explosively charismatic” (The New York Times) Avi Avital is the first mandolinist to be nominated for a GRAMMY®, and the driving force behind a 21st-century mandolin resurgence. In these concerts, he shares two joyfully exhilarating gems that showcase the instrument’s crystalline beauty and sensuous charm. This program of classical and baroque creations begins with a work by Marianna Martines—an accomplished, multi-talented artist and contemporary of Mozart’s. (Pictured: Avi Avital, mandolin)
