Violine Concerto No.1
Young Israeli conductor and pianist Lahav Shani—recently named Zubin Mehta’s successor at the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra—made his double debut at the Pierre Boulez Saal last season with a solo recital and conducting the Staatskapelle Berlin. Now he leads the Boulez Ensemble in the season’s second world premiere: a violin concerto by Syrian-American composer Kareem Roustom, with Michael Barenboim as the soloist. Two chamber music works by Janáček and Brahms complete the program.
The world premiere of Kareem Roustom´s work is commissioned by the Daniel Barenboim Foundation.
