Programme:
The programme will be announced at concert evening.

Avi Avital has had experience with MUSIC FESTIVAL SURPRISE! The gifted mandolinist accepted an invitation from the 2012 Festival to put together an ensemble of his own choosing and select exclusively a programme for a concert in the Surprise series. The result featuring bassist Omer Avital, percussionist Itamar Doari and pianist Omer Klein was so fantastic that the Festival has once again given this exceptional Israeli artist free rein! With his usual verve and vitality, Avital, this traveller between musical worlds, has again accepted the challenge, and this year he has selected Giovanni Sollima to be his sparring partner. A great fit! Just like Avital, the cellist and composer from Sicily is known for switching effortlessly from one style to the other and for constantly looking for new blends of classical, rock, jazz and folklore. Where will this joint musical journey take them, on which they have invited other musician colleagues to come along? One can only speculate ahead of time — between early and new music, between Orient and Occident, between improvisation and virtuosic solos. More Surprise is really not possible!
