Virtuoso mandolin player Avi Avital returns to Sydney to lead the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra again in an adventurous exploration of the mandolin and its music. By overwhelming popular demand, the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra’s Artistic Director Paul Dyer is proud to bring the Berlin based Israeli musician back to Australia following his widely popular 2014 sell-out tour.
Avi is the first mandolin player to be nominated for a classical Grammy Award and has electrified audiences throughout Israel, Europe, Australia, Asia, and the Americas. Memorable performances include Royal Albert Hall, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Berlin Philharmonie, Forbidden City in Beijing, the Paris Philharmonie and Zurich’s Tonhalle
From first picking up the mandolin at the age of eight in Israel, to studying the instrument in Padova, Italy, Avi continues to forge new ground for the mandolin and open the world’s ears to its potential.
Avi is a successful recording artist, recording exclusively with Deutsche Grammophon. “Between Worlds” introduced chamber music compositions from Ernest Bloch and De Falla to traditional Bulgarian Folk tunes and was released in 2014 to critical acclaim. Other prominent recordings include “Bach” and “Vivaldi”.
