Zubin Mehta, conductor

This concert is part of Zubin Mehta’s final US tour as music director of the Israel Philharmonic — he steps down in October 2019, 50 years after becoming the orchestra’s music advisor and 42 years after becoming its first official music director.

In 1936, Polish violinist Bronislaw Huberman persuaded first-chair musicians of Eastern European and German orchestras who had lost their jobs as a result of Nazism to immigrate to Palestine. In doing so, he created an “orchestra of soloists” which, under the esteemed leadership of Zubin Mehta, continues to absorb new immigrants and to act as a global community for musicians from around the world. Its inaugural concert was conducted by Arturo Toscanini in solidarity with Huberman and the Jewish refugee musicians as a public rebuke of Adolf Hitler.

This concert  marks the ensemble’s ninth UMS appearance and Zubin Mehta’s tenth since their respective debuts in the early 1970s. Program to be announced.
