The mandolin player Avi Avital has become a world star; a status which players of this particular instrument rarely reach. As the first mandolin player to be nominated for a Grammy Award, he is one of the world’s leading ambassadors for his instrument. He demonstrates its fascinating range of sounds and the different ways in which it can be played with passion and dedication. More than 90 works have been composed especially for him; he has also increased the repertoire of works for mandolins himself by rearranging pieces originally written for other instruments. With this, and of course also with his impressive virtuosity, he has managed to pave the way to the grand venues for the mandolin.

Avi Avital regularly collaborates closely with the Kammerakademie Potsdam (KAP); these collaborations have, for example, resulted in a jointly produced CD with Bach concertos released by Deutschen Grammophon. The KAP is celebrating its 15th anniversary in the 2016/2017 season. Based in Potsdam, it has now become a firmly established entity on the musical and social scene of the state capital of Brandenburg, as proven not least by the fact that it won the Echo Klassic ‘Orchestra of the Year’ award in 2015 and the numerous invitations it has received to national and international music festivals. The KAP is not only known for its high standards in terms of artistic quality but also for its outstandingly lively performances. Audiences never fail to be impressed by its musical diversity and interpretations that are based on a sound knowledge of music history.
