From Bach, Ginastera and Ravel to Piazzolla and Brazilian choro

Israeli superstar mandolin player Avi Avital and celebrated Brazilian-born guitarists Sérgio and Odair Assad, the Assad Brothers, are global musical citizens, at home with an international program ranging from Bach to Brazil. The Assads, with their exceptional artistry and uncanny ensemble-playing, team up with Avital, passionate and “explosively charismatic” (New York Times) in live performance. Avi Avital is a driving force behind the reinvigoration of the mandolin repertory. The trio explore both classical repertoire reimagined for guitar and mandolin, and traditional choro music, a popular genre in Brazil known for its upbeat rhythms and bravura virtuosity.

“A musician who recognizes no boundaries except those of good taste and who has the artistry to persuade listeners to follow him anywhere.” – Gramophone on Avi Avital

“Call it one of the most engaging musical presentations of the season. Better yet, call it a stunning display of the music of the Western Hemisphere.” — The Los Angeles Times on Sérgio and Odair Assad
