Les Violons du Roy takes its name from the celebrated court orchestra of the French kings. Its performances match as closely as possible to the period of each work’s composition, as its minimum fifteen-member complement plays modern instruments, albeit with period bows for Baroque and Classical music, and its interpretations are deeply informed by the latest research on seventeenth- and eighteenth-century performance practice.
The first solo mandolinist to be nominated for a Grammy Award, Avi Avital has released four recordings for the label including his ECHO Klassik Award-winning Vivaldi (2015). Avital’s inspired music-making has electrified audiences in performances around the world, and has appeared with orchestras such as the BBC Symphony Orchestra, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Deutsche Symphonie Orchester Berlin, Israel Philharmonic, St Louis Symphony Orchestra and Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal under conductors such as Zubin Mehta, Kent Nagano, Osmo Vänskä, Ton Koopman and Giovanni Antonini.
The words “superstar” and “mandolinist” still look odd next to each other. Yet in the classical world they are starting to be joined with some frequency…. Avi Avital ....was nothing short of electric.
