Program notes

Join us for the world premiere of Mathias Duplessy’s Sonata for Guitar and Mandolin, live at the Verbier Festival, and (re)discover works by Bach and Philip Glass, arranged by composer Sergio Assad!

Mandolinist Avi Avital joins guitarist Miloš Karadaglić for a joyful and dynamic concert with a varied repertoire! The program features some of the most beautiful pieces of Baroque music—including Bach’s Concerto in D Minor and his English Suite No. 2 in A Minor—alongside various works by Philip Glass, including Poet Acts and “Opening”, the first movement of Glassworks structured around a haunting polyrhythmic melody. The concert concludes with French composer Mathias Duplessy’s Sonata for Guitar and Mandolin—performed at the Verbier Festival for the first time ever by the composer himself!
