Masterpieces abound in this stirring Bach and Vivaldi concerto program. French-Canadian ensemble Les Violons du Roy, “the best early-music ensemble in North America,” (The Washington Post) performs in Philadelphia for the first time with guest soloist and mandolin superstar Avi Avital. A true virtuoso, Avital’s recent Carnegie Hall performance was hailed as “nothing short of electric” (The New York Times) and his Annenberg Center debut promises more high-voltage excitement.
