On Reflections


Virtuoso mandolinist, Avi Avital, has been playing the mandolin since he was a boy growing up in Beersheba. He trained in Italy and now lives in Berlin, performing in the great concert halls of the world. Avi has transformed the role of the mandolin as a modern day classical instrument as he performs music from the Baroque to folk, including 90 works written in collaboration with the composers. He is in Melbourne to perform with the Giocoso Quartet for Music Viva and while here he visited 3MBS and spoke with Susan Porter about his life, his exciting career, and his passion for music. To hear this conversation tune in to Reflections on 3MBS Fine Music at 5pm on Sunday 22 April (repeated at 12 noon on Thursday 26 April on 3MBS Digital).
