. . . all works transfer well to the mandolin, tuned like the violin. The resulting sound is entrancing. Avital stylishly meets the challenge of moulding plectrum-plucked sound into long, shapely phrases and figurations. The slow movement of the Concerto in G minor, BWV 1056R is heavenly, the brighter plectrum of the mandolin singing out above the subdued pizzicato of the orchestral strings. Equally, the singing upper line above arpeggiated broken chords in the Concerto in A minor, BWV 1041's final movement is a moment of pure technical genius . . . Avital's mandolin is hauntingly beautiful, putting this firmly on the wish-list of any Baroque enthusiast.
