Vivaldi & Telemann

Masterworks Series >

Israel’s Avi Avital is leading a glorious revival of the mandolin in classical music, fueled by his “deep musicality” and “eye-watering virtuosity” (The New York Times). Playing music from the instrument’s first heyday in the 18th century, Avital’s rapid-fire plucks and sensuous strums leave no doubt as to why Vivaldi and others in his wake were attracted to this small but mighty instrument with a penetrating tone. The mandolin plays particularly well with others, a strength exploited in the fascinating Sinfonia concertante by Leopold Koželuch, Mozart’s peer and rival in Vienna. This group showcase for trumpet, mandolin, piano and bass explores the folksy charms and elegant strides of four unlikely partners.

*Please note that there is no pre-concert wine tasting at this 12 Noon concert.
