Avi Avital, mandolin and Hanzhi Wang, accordion

October 21, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm EDT


Concert accordionist Hanzhi Wang is celebrated for her extraordinary virtuosity and captivating stage presence. Grammy-nominated classical mandolinist Avi Avital is best known for his interpretations of popular Baroque and folk music written for performance by other instruments. The duo’s delightfully surprising and equally impressive collaboration features a varied program including Bartók’s playful Romanian Folk Dances, Stravinsky’s graceful and lamenting Suite Italienne from Pulcinella, Saint-Saens’s passionate Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso, Sarasate’s Spanish Dances, Op. 22, and more. The vivacious musicality of this duo is not to be missed!
