The illustrious violinist and conductor Pinchas Zukerman joins the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in what promises to be an exceptional series of concerts as part of this Summer Music Festival.

In the opening concert, Zukerman performs J.S. Bach’s Violin Concerto in A minor. An exemplar of the Baroque concerto, the faultless melodic lines and perfectly balanced structure of the work are a given; what draws audiences to the work, however, is the yearning melancholy of the violin, which comes across in every bar of the concerto.

Schoenberg’s string sextet Verklärte Nacht, his earliest major work, and Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 4 (Italian), conclude a programme spanning nearly 200 years.

‘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.’ (Los Angeles Times)
