Short Biography
Pinchas Zukerman has remained a phenomenon in the world of music for over four decades. His musical genius, prodigious technique and unwavering artistic standards are a marvel to audiences and critics. Devoted to the next generation of musicians, he has inspired younger artists with his magnetism and passion. His enthusiasm for teaching has resulted in innovative programs in London, New York, China, Israel and Ottawa, and this artist is highly regarded as violinist, violist, conductor, pedagogue and chamber musician.

In 2019, Pinchas Zukerman, cellist Amanda Forsyth and the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra gave the world premiere of Israli composer, Avner Dorman’s Double Concerto for violin, cello, and orchestra.

As season 2019-2020 marks his eleventh season as Principal Guest Conductor of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London and his fifth as Artist-in-Association with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, he leads the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra on two seven-city tours in the U.S. and in Spain, and brings the Adelaide Symphony to China. In addition, he conducts and plays with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. As soloist, he embarks on a European tour with Zubin Mehta and the Vienna Philharmonic, performing the Elgar Violin Concerto, and appears – amongst others – with Staatskapelle Berlin, Polish National Radio and Rhode Island Philharmonics. In chamber music, Mr. Zukerman travels with the Zukerman Trio in South Africa, U.S. and Europe.

As this season celebrates Beethoven’s 250th anniversary, Mr. Zukerman partners with pianist Daniel Barenboim for a rare journey that features all ten Beethoven’s Sonatas for Violin and Piano at the Pierre Boulez Saal, dedicating this concert cycle to the memory of the great violinist Isaac Stern, who would have celebrated his 100th birthday in 2020.
In June 2020, Cadogan Hall in London hosts Pinchas Zukerman Summer Music Festival, a 5-day All-Beethoven event featuring a series of orchestral and chamber concerts with Mr. Zukerman and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as other artists including cellist Amanda Forsyth, Zukerman Trio and the Jerusalem Quartet.
