Pinchas Zukerman has had a profound effect on the classical music scene in Canada since becoming conductor of the National Arts Centre Orchestra in 1999. He has appeared several times in Kingston with members of the NACO orchestra or his own Zukerman Chamber Players. We are privileged to have him in our inaugural season along with the wonderful cellist Amanda Forsythe and frequent collaborator, pianist Angela Cheng. Kingston audiences will have an opportunity to applaud Pinchas Zukerman in his final season as Music Director of the National Arts Centre Orchestra. The program will feature works by Mendelsohn, Beethoven and Franck.
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.
