The Venice Baroque Orchestra, recognized as one of the premier ensembles devoted to period instrument performance, and Israeli mandolin virtuoso Avi Avital bring the Baroque to life with an infectious energy in this dazzling program. The New York Times has said of their collaboration “the chemistry between the ensemble and Mr. Avital was palpable.” Their recording, Vivaldi, won a 2015 ECHO Klassik Award. If you’re a fan of Baroque music, this is a concert you won’t want to miss.

“The words “superstar” and “mandolinist” still look odd next to each other. Yet in the classical world they are starting to be joined with some frequency … Avi Avital … was nothing short of electric.” — The New York Times
