Quotes & Highlights
“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
Inside Music, an informative talk free to ticketholders, begins one hour prior to the concert.
Meet Pinchas Zukerman for a CD signing in the Symphony Store following the September 6 and 8 concerts.

Wagner – Overture to Tannhäuser
Bruch – Violin Concerto No. 1
Tchaikovsky – Symphony No. 5
Two close friends of the SFS, Semyon Bychkov and Pinchas Zukerman, join the Orchestra in opening the season. The gorgeous melodies of Bruch’s concerto glow in the hands of the gifted Zukerman. If Tchaikovsky didn’t invent Russian Romanticism, he surely perfected it. Afraid that he might be “played out” at 48, he soon completed his awesome Fifth Symphony, a work unmatched in charting the journey from the melancholy of desperate longing to the triumph of the spirit.
