Renowned artist Avi Avital performs two well-known Baroque concertos on the mandolin in his Jacobs Masterworks debut with the San Diego Symphony. The juxtaposition of baroque with Russian masterworks, including tributes by Anton Arensky and Igor Stravinsky to Piotr Tchaikovsky, creates a rich textural contrast.
