Sergio and Odair Assad with Avi Avital
The telepathic musical chemistry of guitarist brothers Sérgio and Odair Assad meets the "explosively charismatic" (The New York Times) mandolin playing of Avi Avital, in an inspired new collaboration. Their Berkeley program ranges from classical works by Bach, Haydn, Debussy, and Bartók reimagined for strummed and plucked strings, to Piazzolla's magnificent Histoire du Tango, to the kinetic rhythms and brazen virtuosity of Brazilian choro music. Don't miss these master musicians as they effortlessly—and joyfully—traverse a panoramic landscape of musical styles and sounds. J.S. BACH Selections from Sonata in E Major, BWV 1016 HAYDN Sonata No. 50 in D Major, Hob.XVI:37 DEBUSSY La plus que lente BARTÓK Romanian Folk Dances, Sz. 56, BB 68 PIAZZOLLA Histoire du Tango LAVRY Three Jewish Dances, Op. 192 Three Brazilian pieces BITTENCOURT "PIXINGUINHA" BITTENCOURT Santa Morena Glória Assanhado More info and tickets: https://calperformances.org/performances/2017-18/recital/sergio-odair-assad-and-avi-avital.php
