About Alon Sariel

Dear visitor, thanks for stopping by!
If your time is short - please scroll down to the last paragraph ;-)

My name is Alon Sariel, I was born and raised in the city of Beersheba, at the southern part of Israel. I play all sorts of plucked instruments like mandolins and lutes of several sizes and forms.

How did I find my particular path? or perhaps, how did it find me?

The wish to play an instrument came when I was 8, and in fact I wanted to play the electric guitar. However, in the local conservatory, after going through a short informal hearing and rhythm test, they tried to persuade me to choose the violin. I guess we've compromised on the mandolin, and the rest is history...

Since then I went studying in Jerusalem, Brussels, Hanover and Bremen, and if I could, I would have never stopped being a student. In fact, the music chambers of my own „private university“ are open pretty much every day :)

In the last decade I was juggling several wonderful balls up in the air, my solo career (which was initially more focused on the mandolin), conducting engagements and activity as a continuo player in different baroque formations as well as my passion for world music of different sorts (I also play the oud, the cura and other oriental instruments), especially when it comes in dialog with the different cultures and religions.

However, since the Corona virus appeared, situation has changed and I'm now trying to enlarge my online presence, which is why you are reading these lines! I'm also working on a series of online collaborations (subscribe to my YouTube channel here), I hope you enjoy the example that I've posted here below.

Although I sometimes carry my instruments on my back, they are actually the ones going before me, leading me to fascinating places and mesmerizing moments. When that's not the case, I take the challenge of providing quality content for my patrons right here, whether they play an instrument of any kind, or just enjoy listening to my playing. As a patron, you get access to music videos of analysis and interpretation, downloads of some of my own arrangements, open workshops and private lessons, posts about future plans, snippets from unpublished recordings, occasional private news and a lot more. Above all, my most sincere gratitude and appreciation.

Thanks for considering joining us here,
Alon
