Avi Avital: The Mandolin Rock Star

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/music/article/avi_avital_the_mandolin_rock_star_20110517

Avi Avital plays the mandolin sitting center stage in a hard-back chair. He curls into himself, his face turned downward, and nestles the small stringed instrument on his lap. His intense concentration draws a listener in, whether he’s performing a piece composed by mandolin virtuoso Yasuo Kuwahara or by Israeli composer Avner Dorman.
