Avi Avital is leading a revival of the mandolin in classical music, fueled by his “deep musicality” and “eye-watering virtuosity” (The New York Times). Through a program celebrating the mandolin’s heyday in the 18th century, Avital takes us down the canals of Venice with traditional gondolier songs and into the court with a fresh interpretation of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons.
