Notes & Reviews:

A genre-defying tour of the globe exploring the nexus between classical, popular and traditional music uniquely inhabited by Avi Avital and his magical mandolin.

From Bach to Bluegrass to Balkan Beats, the mandolin is the chameleon of the music world - every culture and musical genre features the mandolin or one of its close relatives - and Avi Avital is this beautiful instrument's most charismatic, versatile exponent.

After the success of "Bach", Avi returns to again defy expectations with a selection of beautiful melodies and delightful dances from Europe, Central Asia, and the Americas, each with roots in popular folk traditions, arranged by some of the world's greatest classical composers. The resulting dialogue - between North and South, East and West, New and Old, Classical and Traditional - offers a captivating musical journey "Between Worlds".

For this journey, Avi is joined by a host of special guests: from music legends such as Richard Galliano and Giora Feidman, to DG stars such as Catrin Finch, accompanied by a hand-picked ensemble of virtuoso friends from around the world. The joy is palpable, the colours and rhythms irresistible.

Repertoire highlights include the popular Monti Czardas, Bachianas Brasilieras (Villa-Lobos), Bloch's spiritual Nigun, the finale from Dvorák's "American" String Quartet, Spanish, Bulgarian, Romanian, Cuban and Georgian folk dances, and a very special Piazzolla tango.
