Mendelssohn Overture: Hebrides Op. 26 (Fingal’s Cave)
Bruch Violin Concerto No. 1 in G Minor, Op. 26
Brahms Symphony No. 1 in C Minor, Op. 68
Israeli-born Pinchas Zukerman leads the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra as both conductor and violin soloist in a program featuring Bruch’s violin concerto and Brahms’ first symphony, a piece the composer labored over for 14 years as he wrestled with the impact of Beethoven. With a celebrated career encompassing five decades, Zukerman reigns as one of today’s most sought-after and versatile musicians—violin and viola soloist, conductor and chamber musician—and currently serves as the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s principal guest conductor.
