This is Avi Avital debut album for Deutsche Grammophon, devoted to one of his great passions: the music of J.S. Bach. The programme includes Avi’s own mandolin transcriptions of three concertos and a trio sonata by the great Cantor of Leipzig.
Recognised by The New York Times for his “exquisitely sensitive playing” and “stunning agility,” GRAMMY nominated mandolinist Avi Avital is one of the world’s most exciting and entrepreneurial young musicians. He is deeply committed to building a fresh legacy for the mandolin through virtuosic performance and exciting new repertoire. Haaretz Daily has described Avital’s playing as “everything you never dreamt a mandolin could do…truly breathtaking in virtuosity and dedication.”

About Johann Sebastion Bach
Bach’s abilities as an organist were highly respected throughout Europe during his lifetime, although he was not widely recognised as a great composer until a revival of interest and performances of his music in the first half of the 19th century. He is now generally regarded as one of the main composers of the Baroque period, and as one of the greatest composers of all time.
There are numerous resources to read more about Bach. I recommend:
