Just off the heels of returning to Hollywood Bowl and Ravinia festivals, Itzhak kicks off his 2013/14 season with the Toronto Symphony under the baton of Peter Oundjian and at an opening-gala concert with the Cleveland Orchestra. Next week he embarks on an eight-city recital tour of Asia with pianist and longtime collaborator Rohan De Silva. The tour will see them perform in Korea, Japan, China and Taiwan. Itzhak looks forward to once again experiencing the region’s delights, delicious cuisine and reuniting with friends.
The excitement of the Eternal Echoes tour continues! Following sold out concerts in Boston, Long Island, and Toronto and a smashing success at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Eternal Echoes will be appearing at the Hollywood Bowl in August.
Don’t miss out on this special collaboration with Itzhak, Cantor Yitzhak Meir Helfgot, Hankus Netsky, Russell Ger, and the Klezmer Conservatory Band, alongside members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
More very exciting news to come soon!
Fresh off the heals of sold-out concerts with the Atlanta Symphony conducting Mahler’s Symphony No. 1 and recitals at Ottawa’s National Arts Centre Orchestra and the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, Itzhak continued his highly successful season with sold-out recitals in Montevideo, Uruguay and Santiago, Chile.
Itzhak’s international appearances continue this weekend, when he will play at the inaugural concert of the newly renovated Heichal Hatarbut Hall with the Israel Philharmonic and Zubin Mehta conducting. Hope you can make it!
It has been a busy couple of weeks for Itzhak!
Last week, he opened the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s 2012-2013 season with a special all-Beethoven program in Symphony Hall. Itzhak led the orchestra in Beethoven’s two gorgeous Romances for Violin and Orchestra, and then traded his violin for a baton, conducting a rousing, virtuosic performance of the Symphony No. 7 in A Major. As the symphony came to a close on three thunderous chords, the audience jumped to its feet with rapturous applause! Truly a wonderful night of music making.
Then it was on to the New York Philharmonic, where Itzhak was featured as violin soloist on the orchestra’s Opening Night Gala in Avery Fisher Hall. He played delicious bonbons by Rimsky-Korsakov, Massenet, Tchaikovsky, Sarasate, and John Williams, complete with singing tone and characteristically brilliant showmanship.
Itzhak even found the time to hang out with Stephen Colbert!
The season is just getting started, and Itzhak can’t wait to visit old and new friends. Check out his schedule to find out when he will be visiting a town near you.
