Avi Avital will play his first concert in the Carnegie Hall in New York on January 17. The Carnegie Hall team has produced a set of Videos with Avi Avital to follow his preparations for his debut recital in the Carnegie Hall.
In those videos you can follow Avi to the Metropolitan Museum where he is shown some interesting mandolins including the beautiful mandolin by Angelo Manello and a set of Gibson Mandolins. You can also hear about his habit of making fotos of his audience and post the pictures to twitter or facebook with the tag #viewfromstage. And you can see where Avi will play his debut recital.

January 17 is also the release date for the new album by Avi Avital Between Worlds. I could alredy get the album whe I met Avi in reiburg where he played a concert together with the frame drum player Murat Coskun who lives here. The concert was titled “Framedrum meets mandolin”.
This new album is a great compilation of classical music with folk influences. This is the official album trailer by Deutsche Grammophon:
