Unsure of the current parking lot situation, I parked up on Oxford St near Hearst and walked over.

Fabulous concert with two (2) encores! Standing ovation well-deserved by the conductor, the orchestra, and especially Robert McDuffie, the violin soloist!

Description

Toch/Big Ben Variations

Rózsa/Violin Concerto, Op. 24

Copland/Symphony No. 3

Reflecting the character and identity of Israel’s diverse population, the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra—one of the country’s oldest and most important musical institutions—visits Berkeley with a special program honoring the 60th Anniversaries of both the Orchestra and the founding of the State of Israel. Under the dynamic creative vision of music director Leon Botstein, the program spotlights music by three contemporary Jewish composers, including Aaron Copland’s stirring Third Symphony with its thunderous conclusion based on his Fanfare for the Common Man, as well as Ernst Toch’s tour de force Big Ben Variations. Appearing with the orchestra is Grammy nominated violinist Robert McDuffie.
