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.
