In seasons 2022/23 and 2023/24, Avi brings together 6 different programmes, 3 in each season. Each programme is inspired by a significant geographical region:
Year 1: Black Sea, Italy and Iberia
Year 2: Levant, British Isles and The Balkans.
The performers for each programme will be Avi Avital, his Between Worlds Ensemble and a featured folk soloist(s) or group(s).
Each programme will be around 90mins long with an intermission. It will be a presentation of classical music pieces and new musical arrangements with unique instrumentation that takes the music back to its roots.
The cornerstone of this project is to find residencies with international concert halls who wish to be part of this special project and vision. They may take all 6 programmes or a selection of programmes depending on their desire.
We aim to document the journey of this project from the creation stage to the performances. At least one performance of each programme will be audio visually recorded.
