Zilkha Hall, Hobby Center for the Performing ArtsFrom Bach, Haydn and Debussy to Piazzolla and Brazilian choroIsraeli superstar mandolin player Avi Avital and celebrated Brazilian-born guitarists Sérgio and Odair Assad are global musical citizens, at home with an international program ranging from Bach to Brazil. The Assads, with their exceptional artistry and uncanny ensemble-playing, team up with Avital, passionate and “explosively charismatic” (New York Times) in live performance.
