Bruno Letort, “Des aventures sonores” France Musique, Radio France, 24 February 2015

«Yuval Avital is a unique musician who is constantly pushing the aesthetic boundaries, mixing with elegance the guitar, his favourite instrument, with traditional cultures, contemporary music and new technologies. His credo, which is fundamentally devoted to exploration of new forms of performance has given birth to symphonies, operas and hybrid forms that dialogue with the codes.»

Tadeusz Wielecki, Director of Warsaw Autumn Festival in an interview to Gazeta, Poland

«REKA mean in Hebrew ‘background’. The work deals with roots, cultural background, but also the aesthetic background and its possibility to be recreated with voices. This composition is a commission of the Warsaw Autumn that uses an organic of masters of traditional singing and a vocal crowd of non-musicians. Yuval Avital, its author, Israeli living in Milan, very often goes back to the traditional cultures (…) in REKA there are rare moments of true solos - most of the time the traditions sing together, voices overlap - because this work is not about presentation of ethnic or exotic shows, but - following the score of Avital - a presentation of a meta-culture. The voice is is transformed into an instrument, transforming itself in many different contexts.»
