This concert will mark Itzhak Perlman’s 84th appearance with the New York Philharmonic. He has conducted and performed with the Orchestra twice before: in October 2005 and March 2004. Of the most recent dual appearance, The New York Times wrote: “Just by being Itzhak Perlman, this particular conductor had the Philharmonic’s string players emulating his own relaxed warmth and breadth of tone.”

“It’s a pleasure for me to return to the podium of the New York Philharmonic to conduct this great orchestra in their 175th anniversary season and perform two of my favorite composers, Beethoven and Brahms,” said Itzhak Perlman.

Itzhak Perlman made his New York Philharmonic debut in May 1965 as the 1964 Leventritt Award Winner in a program conducted by William Steinberg. Most recently, he performed in the 2012–13 season Opening Gala Concert, led by Music Director Alan Gilbert.
