MATHIAS DUPLESSY Sonata for Guitar and Mandolin (World Premiere)

A dream pairing of two of the classical music world’s most dynamic recitalists! The “explosively charismatic” (The New York Times) Israeli mandolin player Avi Avital was the first soloist on his instrument to be nominated for a classical Grammy Award; the Montenegrin phenomenon Miloš Karadaglić has been called “one of the most exciting and communicative classical guitarists today” (The New York Times). 

Both artists have revitalized the repertoire performed on their instruments, attracting a new generation of listeners through inventive programs and sheer instrumental prowess. Together in Berkeley for the first time as a duo, Avital and Karadaglić perform a kaleidoscopic program of arrangements and transcriptions for strummed and plucked strings, from a delightful selection of works by Bach to the beloved fifth section from Villa-Lobos’ Bachianas Brasileiras. The duo also tackles a sparkling set of Philip Glass compositions and caps off the concert with the world premiere of a new sonata by French composer Mathias Duplessy.

The run time for this performance is approximately 90 minutes including intermission, and not including any encores.

Support for the presentation of Israeli artists is provided by the Sir Jack Lyons Charitable Trust.
