Why See Seattle Symphony - Vivaldi & Telemann?
Mandolin Superstar Avi Avital Joins The Seattle Symphony
The Seattle Symphony and their Associate Conductor Pablo Rus Broseta welcomes Israeli mandolin virtuoso Avi Avital for a program of works specifically showcasing the versatile instrument in all its intricate, string-plucking glory. The evening's diverse line-up also includes the ensemble's principal bass Jordan Anderson, principal trumpet David Gordon and award-winning Korean American guest pianist Jessica Choe.
Widely considered one of the most talented ambassadors of the mandolin, Avi Avital and his rapid-fire fingers have had a hand in rejuvenating the instrument's presence on modern stages once more. Embodying a sense of excitement and adventure that is often captured in his electric, energy-filled performances of classical works old and new (the instrumentalist has inspired over 90 new works), Avital's pioneering spirit garnered him the first ever Grammy Award nomination for best soloist on the mandolin.
