The Art of the Mandolin

Posted on Friday, November 13, 2020



Avi Avital's new album 'The Art of the Mandolin' features my three movement work 'Death is a Friend of Ours' written for the amazing combination of mandolin, guitar, harp, harpsichord and theorbo. As the comments and reviews have so far have never failed to mention - 'despite its title', it's a rather joyful and uplifting work. The piece really evokes a joy of living and for me you can only truly sense this joy if you are aware of how short-lived it is. Death isn't something we should be scared of or hide from, it's simply a part of life.
