This Weekend's Guest Artist Pinchas Zukerman

Famed vio­lin­ist and con­duc­tor Pin­chas Zuk­er­man returns to New World Symphony this weekend for the first NWS concert of the season at the Arsht Center. He will be perform­ing Beethoven’s Vio­lin Con­certo as well as con­duct­ing a mas­ter class for NWS Violin Fellows.

Zukerman appeared with NWS dur­ing the 1996–1997 sea­son. For the con­certs of Decem­ber 12–15, 1996, he both con­ducted and was guest vio­lin soloist, playing Mozart’s Vio­lin Con­certo No. 5. A month later, for a con­cert at the Dade County Audi­to­rium held by the Con­cert Asso­ci­a­tion of Florida, he again con­ducted, but this time his solo instru­ment was the viola, as he was performing with vio­lin­ist Itzhak Perl­man, along with NWS Fel­lows. The featured work was Mozart’s Sin­fo­nia Con­cer­tante in E-flat major for Vio­lin, Viola, and Orchestra.

Zukerman returned to NWS and the Lincoln Theatre in November 2003, as Music Director of Canada's National Arts Centre Orchestra. The group was on tour in the U.S. and Mexico and Zukerman conducted auditions including of several NWS Fellows. (see photos above)
