Celebrating 70 years since its first performance in 1946, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra continues to bring first-class performances to worldwide audiences. The orchestra has always prided itself on the artistic calibre of its conductors, amongst them Pinchas Zukerman who joins them for a welcome return to the Festival.


Pinchas Zukerman has remained a phenomenon in the world of music for over 40 years and is equally regarded as a conductor as he is an instrumentalist, leading many of the world’s top ensembles in a wide variety of the most demanding orchestral works.


This splendid last night of the 2016 Festival includes Pinchas Zukerman conducting both himself and his wife, cellist Amanda Forsyth, in Brahms’ emotional and melodic Double Concerto, before finishing with one of Dvorak’s most romantic orchestral works.
