Avi Avital has dedicated himself to reviving the mandolin repertoire like no other. Whether with original compositions, transcription or improvisation, Avi Avital fully explores the potential of this often underestimated instrument. In this collaboration with Giovanni Antonini and Il Giardino Armonico, the Mandolin Concerto by Johann Nepomuk Hummel is the central work. The composer was Haydn's successor in the service of Prince Esterházy in Eisenstadt. Haydn, in turn, is currently the focus of Antonini and his ensemble, who are working on recording all of his symphonies on period instruments by his 300th birthday in 2032. The Italians already caused quite a stir with their first recordings: their emphasis on the love of experimentation and intense expressivity in the symphonies through feisty accents, heightened contrasts, flawless intonation and rousing virtuosity put them in a completely new light – and the cliché of the old-fashioned »Papa Haydn« can be burried once and for all!
