Eh, I'm torn

This seems like a project that should be a hit. The last Bach accordian album was an example of transcriptions that work. In this situation, the mandolin seems like an obvious substiute, but it's a hard sell. It sounds like a harpsicord, but it can't carry the sound in a convincing fasion. Perhaps if Avi played with a stripped down orchestra it would come off with greater effect. Also, there is a harpsicord playing in the orchistera which seems to mask the sound of the mandolin at times. Sufice to say, I can't really endorse this recording at this point. -Bz


More than stunningly beautiful, this album captivated my soul. Avital gives Bach his due by letting his music flow seamlessly through his mandolin into the world. All of the pieces were written for other instruments, yet they sound almost truer to the original, something about them is just so precisely tuned to the spirit of Bach's music. I can't stop listening to the D minor concerto in amazement, as well as to the heavenly slow movement of the G concerto. And Avital's rock-star qualities are totally captured in the recording. Fantastic.

The real thing… a NEW thing!

Avi Avital has done something new with old elements, the mandolin and Bach. You can't say that everyday.
The recording is beautiful and the playing is impeccable. Outstanding!
