Timelessly Beautiful

On his return to the Wiener Konzerthaus, Avi Avital embarks on a musical journey through space and time with Ksenija Sidorova and Amir Wahba. Nominated in 2010 as the first mandolinist to win a Grammy, Avi Avital has dusted off the reputation of the mandolin, long ridiculed only as a folk instrument, and its repertoire with virtuosity. »I consider it my mission to fill the historical gap in the mandolin literature,« explains the 1978 ECHO Award winner born in Be'er Sheva, in southern Israel, who has been hailed by the New York Times for his »explosively charismatic« live performances.

What makes »Between Worlds« so special is the unusual lineup: with Ksenija Sidorova and Amir Wahba, Avital brings a terrific accordionist and an internationally sought-after percussionist to his side. Like Avi Avital, Latvian Ksenija Sidorova is considered a versatile ambassador for her instrument. Percussionist Amir Wahba enriches the ingenious trio with his fondness for the world's most diverse musical styles. The fascinating tightrope walk between styles and epochs, between regions and cultures, which musically lead an unexcited, harmonious coexistence, makes one dream.
