). Isaac Stern and Pablo Casals learned of Zukerman’s violin talent during a 1962 visit to Israel. Zukerman subsequently moved to the United States that year to study at the Juilliard School under Stern and Ivan Galamian. He made his New York City debut in 1963. In 1967, he shared the Leventritt Prize with the Korean violinist Kyung-wha Chung.

On March 25, 2021, the MÁV Symphony Orchester prepared for a festive concert on the occasion of the 140th anniversary of the birth of Béla Bartók. The concert would have been made even more celebratory by the performance of world-renowned violin and violinist Pinchas Zukerman. His idea was the special “birthday present” to perform the duo of Zoltán Kodály with the help of the wife of an excellent cellist at the beginning of the concert. The work, composed in 1914, is Hungarian music to the fullest, using the possibilities of the two instruments beautifully. The Viola Competition was created during the composer’s emigration to the United States, but due to his illness he was no longer able to finish it. The competition was completed by his friend, Tibor Serly, following the author’s sketches and personal guidance. This concert was missed in 2021 due to the corona epidemic, but to the for music-loving audience with great pleasure Pinchas Zukerman and Amanda Forsyth will come to Budapest and hopefully that this time there will be no obstacle to holding the special concert.

Purchase tickets on the spot.
