Full concert: Israel Philharmonic and Zubin Mehta

Featured Audio

One of Israel's oldest and most influential cultural institutions, the Israel Philharmonic was founded on the eve of World War II, when the Polish star violinist Bronislaw Huberman auditioned leading Jewish musicians across Europe and procured them lifesaving jobs.  When the nation of Israel was founded in 1948, the Palestine Symphony became the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, the country's national orchestra. Today, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra is an eloquent voice for peace, as well as Israel's powerful cultural ambassador.  Its renowned music director, Zubin Mehta, led the orchestra in this highly-anticipated Severance Hall performance.
