Between classical and world music: Ksenija Sidorova and Avi Avital move between the worlds with virtuosity and pleasure. Mandolin and accordion are truly not an everyday duo combination, but when two such high-ranking soloists come together for a concert as these two, the audience can expect musical fireworks. Ksenija Sidorova was awarded an ECHO in 2017, and Avi Avital is the first mandolinist ever to be nominated for a Grammy. The musical chemistry is just right, the two communicate with each other and with the music, exuding "fire, passion and sex appeal", as the magazine Crescendo aptly titled.
