Utah Symphony: Zukerman plays Bach’s Violin Concerto with Montgomery, Elgar & Mozart 29
The legendary Pinchas Zukerman, one of today’s most versatile and sought-after musicians, returns to conduct and perform Johann Sebastian Bach’s Violin Concerto in A minor.
Exploding gestures are juxtaposed with gentle fleeting melodies in Jessie Montgomery’s Starburst.
The Serenade for Strings is one of Edward Elgar’s earliest–and favorite–compositions and ranks among his most frequently performed music.
Mozart’s delightful Symphony No. 29, written when the composer was 18-years old, concludes the program with charm and rich harmonies.
Estimated concert length: 70 minutes (with no intermission)
The program with Thierry Fischer conducting Beethoven’s Symphony No.3 and Schoenberg’s Peace on Earth has been moved to the weekend of December 3 – 5. Given travel restrictions into the U.S., Thierry Fischer is unable to come to Utah in November, but he is pleased to announce his commitment and ability to return to lead Utah Symphony in Masterworks Series performances the first week of December instead. Individuals who would like to exchange their tickets from November 19-21 performances to December 3-5 performances should call 801-533-6683 or visit usuo.org/exchange.
