Les Violons du Roy with Avi Avital

The first mandolin soloist to be nominated for a classical Grammy, Avi Avital has been compared to Andres Segovia for championing 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. As our Artist-in-residence, Avital will perform a range of Baroque concertos, both original and transcriptions, by Bach and Vivaldi, accompanied by the highly acclaimed French-Canadian ensemble, Les Violons du Roy.
