Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2014
Avital's fluent technique helps - holding notes for absolutely their full length, and with smooth shifts between hand-positions...Esfahani, guest continuo player, is strikingly inventive as he plays through held written chords at cadences. A gondola song with tenor Juan Diego Fl=rez provides a delightfully contrasting ending to the programme.

The Telegraph, 5th April 2015
Avital brings spark, dexterity and his signature finesse to [the] transcriptions...While the plethora of discs of Vivaldi's music might make us wonder at times if we have already heard enough, Avital breathes captivating new life and interpretative imagination into it.

Avi Avital re-imagines the sounds of Venice in this vivid homage to the most beloved composer of the Italian Baroque, Antonio Vivaldi. After his introduction with BACH and the colorful exploration of world music on BETWEEN WORLDS, Avi presents four popular Vivaldi concerti on this album with the great Venice Baroque Orchestra as well as two 18th Century Venetian Gondolier songs, performed with tenor Juan Diego Flórez. He is touring the repertoire through US in Feb/March 2015.
