Program notes

In December 1996, a plethora of virtuoso violinists came together to celebrate the 60th birthday of the prestigious Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. From towering figures like Isaac Stern (a regular collaborator of the ensemble's for half a century!), Pinchas Zukerman, and Itzhak Perlman, to then-rising talents like Maxim Vengerov (here just in his 20s!), Shlomo Mintz, and Gil Shaham, the soloists took the stage to perform some of the greatest works composed for multiple soloists. At the podium? Daniel Barenboim and Zubin Mehta, the orchestra's music director for 50 years.
