Aires de Sefarad, performed by Duo46.

Born in Argentina, trained in Israel and the US, the now Berkeley-based composer Jorge Liderman brings a highly original twist to Sephardic music with Duo46, two maverick players of violin and guitar in this work commissioned in part by the Guggenheim Foundation. The double bill includes Avi Avital, an Israeli mandolin master who recently won first prize of the international competition for plucked strings “Città di Voghera” (Italy); and has played solo with the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra, the Chamber Orchestra of Milano and others. (Please see separate listing for another solo performance by Avi Avital)
