Avi Avital and Milos

The Baker-Baum Concert Hall

The first mandolin soloist to be nominated for a classical Grammy, Avi Avital has been compared to Andres Segovia for his championship of his instrument and to Jascha Heifitz for his incredible virtuosity. Passionate and “explosively charismatic” (The New York Times) in live performance, he is a driving force behind the reinvigoration of the mandolin repertory. For this exciting concert, he is joined by Milos, a leading exponent of guitar, who has appeared in some of the most important concert halls and at major festivals around the world.
