Concert Booking (NL only) & PR
For the past decade, multi-instrumentalist Alon Sariel has been breathing new life into the mandolin, inspiring critics and audiences alike with his contagious musicianship and flawless technique, which makes him today's mandolinist of the first rank. With over a thousand concerts and festivals in more than 35 countries across the world, he maintains a multi-faceted career as a soloist, chamber player and artistic director in diverse productions.
With "Telemandolin" (2017, Berlin Classics) Alon became the first mandolinist to be awarded an OPUS KLASSIK. For the Beethoven anniversary in 2020, he was invited by Naxos to record the composer's works for mandolin and fortepiano and in 2021 he was invited to partner with Avi Avital and the Venice Baroque Orchestra to record Vivaldi's double mandolin concerto for Deutsche Grammophon.
In his latest solo release "Plucked Bach" (2022, PENTATONE), which exceeded 1.7m streams in the first months of release, Alon approaches Bach's cello suites on different mandolins and lutes, the baroque guitar and the oud. All Music declared that “Plucked Bach” is “A wonderful recording, full of fresh sounds, that solves the Bach transcription conundrum”.
