The Kravis Center for the Performing Arts

Pinchas Zukerman, violin

Gerard Shcwarz, conductor

Following his performance with the Symphony that was livestreamed to remote viewers during the pandemic, violin virtuoso Pinchas Zuckerman returns to perform three lush and joyful works: Tchaikovsky’s melodic Sérénade mélancolique and that composer’s sentimental “Mélodie” from Souvenir d’un lieu cher paired with Mozart’s buoyant Violin Concerto No. 3 “Strassburg.” This uplifting concert on Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday opens with Hailstork’s inspirational Four Hymns Without Words and culminates with Sibelius’ majestic and powerful Symphony No. 2.

With a celebrated career encompassing five decades, Pinchas Zukerman reigns as one of today's most sought after and versatile musicians - violin and viola soloist, conductor, and chamber musician.  He is renowned as a virtuoso, admired for the expressive lyricism of his playing, singular beauty of tone, and impeccable musicianship, which can be heard throughout his discography of over 100 albums for which he gained two GRAMMY awards and 21 nominations. This season’s highlights include performances with Dallas Symphony Orchestra, English Chamber Orchestra, Deutche Radio Philharmonie, Mannheimer Philharmoniker, Adelaide Symphony, Orchestre National de Lyon and the Valencia, Sinfonia Varsovia and Castille y Leon orchestras of Spain. Chamber music concerts take place in Japan, Italy, France, Germany and the United States. He and cellist Amanda Forsyth collaborate with friends and colleagues the Jerusalem String Quartet in sextet programs offered in both Israel and the US. The Los Angeles Times reported, “Zukerman again seemed the forever-young virtuoso: expressively resourceful, infectiously musical, technically impeccable, effortless. As usual, it was a joy to be in his musical company.”
