Following his successful Deutsche Grammophon debut “Bach”, Avi Avital has continued to immerse himself in the music of J.S. Bach, one of his greatest passions. Talking about his dream of bringing the mandolin and its repertoire to a wider audience than ever before, Avi – perhaps its first international superstar – overflows with charm and enthusiasm. For his tour in the Spring of 2019, the Grammy-nominated mandolin virtuoso from Israel has arranged two of Bach’s best known works, the Solo Partita No. 2 in D minor BWV 1004 and the famous Prélude from Cellosuite No. 1. The Extended Edition of his 2012 album includes around 33 minutes of newly recorded Bach arranged by Avital as well as a Bonus DVD. Now available for pre-order, listen to the first track, “Prélude”.
