“Everything you never dreamt a mandolin could do… truly breathtaking in virtuosity and dedication.” – Haaretz on Avital

A striking duo: young Chilean conductor Paolo Bortolameolli meets Israeli mandolinist Avi Avital in a concert of energetic works inspired by the magic of Italy. Beethoven’s 8th is perhaps his most experimental symphony, written in a style that harkens back to earlier composers while barely concealing a radical restructuring of the symphonic form. Likewise, Giovanni Sollima’s new Mandolin Concerto, written for Avital, mashes up musical styles from baroque to rock’n’roll to charming effect.

Join us in the Bell Centre Lobby at 7:00pm for a very special prelude concert with Panorama Ridge Secondary.

The Surrey Nights Series is endowed by a generous gift from WERNER AND HELGA HÖING.

This concert is part of the 2019-2020 Surrey Nights series and is also playing at the Orpheum on May 9, 2020 and in North Vancouver on May 7, 2020.
