AVI AVITAL: Avital meets Avital is a meeting of minds between two musicians who come from different musical backgrounds but share a common heritage.
“Explosively charismatic” (New York Times) in live performance, Avi Avital has been described as playing “with the freedom of rock or jazz musicians” (Boston Globe) even in Baroque repertoire. His latest collaboration enables him to explore this facet of his musicianship further, when he collaborates with Omer Avital to co-lead performances of their original music and arrangements live on tour in connection with the launch of their album, Avital meets Avital. Coming respectively from classical and jazz backgrounds, both musicians were born and raised by Moroccan parents in Israel and with their new album bring their different musical backgrounds and shared cultural heritage into dialogue.
The 2018 tour of Avital meets Avital will include performances in London, Vienna, Amsterdam, Budapest, Cologne, Dortmund, Zurich and the Rheingau and Schleswig-Holstein Music Festivals.
