“Unquestionably Mr. Mehta and the Israel Philharmonic make up a significant and valuable artistic alliance.” The New York Times

“It is impossible to imagine Israel without its Philharmonic Orchestra.” – Shimon Peres, Former Israeli President, Prime Minister and Nobel Prize Laureate

One of Israel’s oldest and most influential cultural institutions, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra was founded in 1936 as an “orchestra of soloists,” made up of first-chair Jewish European musicians who had lost their positions. Since 1977, it has been under the direction of Zubin Mehta, “at the top of the conducting profession for nearly half a century” (Opera magazine). Throughout their nearly-unprecedented relationship, they have performed thousands of concerts across five continents. Dubbed the IPO’s music director for life, the “lightning conductor” (The Independent, U.K.) Mehta will retire from his role with the orchestra in 2019, 50 years after his debut. This performance brings the illustrious IPO to Santa Barbara for the first time, offering a program that features masterpieces by Mozart and Schubert.

Amit Poznansky: “Footnote” Suite (from the music for the motion picture)
Mozart: Symphony No. 36 in C Major, K. 425 (“Linz”)
Schubert: Symphony No. 9 in C Major, D. 944 (“The Great”)
