About This Show

Israeli mandolin wizard Avi Avital has dazzled audiences around the world, toured with Yo-Yo Ma’s Silkroad, and earned a Grammy nomination for his virtuosity and joy-filled artistry. He teams up with the cutting-edge young string quartet Brooklyn Rider for a dynamic, culturally rich program that traverses late 18th century Spanish-inflected Boccherini, a powerful contemporary statement about the US-Mexico border crisis by Matan Roberts, selections by Bach, a world premiere by internationally-renowned Argentine composer Osvaldo Golijov and more, concluding with a mesmerizing work by Silkroad favorite Lev “Lyova” Zhurbin — a fabulous, feverish gypsy tarantella.
