The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra
is a cultural ambassador for Israel, and is regarded as one of the best orchestras in the world.
Recorded in the Mann Auditorium, Tel Aviv in March 2010, this concert sees the Israel Philharmonic conducted in this all-Beethoven programme by the eminent conductor and violinist Itzhak Perlman
After the Egmont Overture, Perlman and the orchestra are joined by the Perlman/Schmidt/Bailey Trio for the beautiful Triple Concerto. The programme concludes with the rousing and evocative Pastoral Symphony.
Perlman obtains a mellow, golden sound of glowing cantabile resonance. --Julian Haylock, International Record Review
