Avi Avital - Mandolin Mindy Kaufman - Piccolo Eliran Avni - Piano Metropolis Ensemble Andrew Cyr – Conductor. A graduate of the Juilliard School, where he earned a Doctorate in Composition, and a protégé of John Corigliano and Zubin Mehta, award-winning Avner Dorman is emerging as one of the leading composers of his generation. His music has been championed by many of the world’s finest conductors. The diverse concertos presented here combine the excitement and spontaneity associated with jazz, rock or ethnic music within an engaging neo-baroque idiom.
