Israel Philharmonic, Collegiate Chorale and Thomas Hampson Encore Acclaimed Salzburg Program Thursday, Oct 25 at Carnegie Hall Gala

Following the enthusiastic reception the Israeli Philharmonic received at the 2012 Salzburg Festival, the orchestra brings Schoenberg’s Kol Nidre and Israeli composer Noam Sheriff’s Mechaye Hametim (Revival of the Dead) to New York City for its Carnegie Hall gala on Thursday, October 25. The program, conducted by Zubin Mehta and also featuring Yuja Wang performing Mendelssohn’s Piano Concerto No. 1, will once again pair the IPO with Hampson and The Collegiate Chorale and marks the New York premiere of the Sheriff work.  In a front page New York Times review, critic James Oestreich reported from Salzburg, “Abetted by Mr. Hampson’s tour de force, in which he also served as narrator in the Schoenberg and spoke and sang in the Sheriff, the evening’s performances were everywhere excellent… The concert was greeted warmly, even clamorously.”
