VAUGHAN WILLIAMS Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis
MOZART Violin Concerto No. 5 in A major
ELGAR Enigma Variations Op. 36
Pinchas Zukerman Violin/Conductor
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
The San Francisco Chronicle said: ‘There's no denying Zukerman's legitimate claim as a triple threat. His violin playing is bright and sinuous, his viola playing is rich and soulful, and he conducts with an abundance of spirit’. The multi Grammy® Award winner returns to the NCH as Principal Guest Conductor of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) who have been described as ‘one of the best and most prestigious symphonic orchestras in the world’ (Daily California).
Zukerman remains a phenomenon in the world of classical music; his musical genius, prodigious technique and unwavering artistic standards are a marvel to audiences and critics alike. It is our great pleasure to welcome both orchestra and conductor/soloist, following their 2012 NCH performance, for this eagerly anticipated concert of orchestral classics by Mozart, Vaughan Williams and Elgar.
