The “explosively charismatic” (The New York Times) Avi Avital is the first mandolin player ever to be nominated for a GRAMMY®, and he shares a multifaceted, multicultural program spotlighting the instrument’s sparkling, strumming charm, including bright and invigorating Baroque gems of Bach and Vivaldi and lively miniatures in the Georgian folk music tradition.
