World-Renowned Maestro Zubin Mehta Conducts Israel Philharmonic in Singapore

One of the world’s greatest conductors Zubin Mehta, will conduct the highly acclaimed Israel Philharmonic Orchestra on 11 November 2014 at the MasterCard Theatres, Marina Bay Sands. Known for a conducting style that is described as impassioned, forceful and flamboyant, maestro Mehta will lead the Philharmonic on Vivaldi’s Concerto in B minor for Four Violins, Mozart’s Symphony No. 36 (Linz) and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5. The “Linz” Symphony, written by Mozart in Linz, Austria, in four days, begins with a slow intensity, building up to a fiery allegro and a finale that races at breakneck speed, demanding Mehta’s masterful control of all the orchestral elements. Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 mirrors this emotionally charged build-up and is a narrative that blossoms from tragedy to rousing triumph. It is a stirring performance, first recorded by Mehta and the Israel Philharmonic as early as 1964. The programme will display Mehta’s mastery of his craft and an intimate, intuitive understanding of an orchestra he has conducted for over 45 years, having handpicked each of its 110 musicians.
