PERLMAN LEADS THE PHILADELPHIA ORCHESTRA WITH AN “INCREDIBLY DEFT TOUCH” AND IS SET TO TOUR WITH MARTHA ARGERICH IN MARCH 2018

On March 15th and 16th, Itzhak Perlman play/conducted concerts with the Philadelphia Orchestra to standing ovations and top praise from The Philadelphia Inquirer. “The Mozart work took on an emotional deliberation that suggested the late Nikolaus Harnoncourt. Clearly, Perlman – who conducts with a contained Ormandyesque beat – had worked on a series of attractively evolving textures in the symphony. Primary themes spoke with a highly inflected sense of purpose. In the Dvorak 8, Perlman gave a Viennese lilt to the mysterious waltz music of the third movement, which was an incredibly deft touch.”

Primo announces the first-ever tour of Itzhak Perlman and Martha Argerich in the 2017-18 season! Two living legends reuniting for a tour of the United States, surely one for the records. March 2018. 6 concerts. 5 cities. Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Washington D.C. and New York. Click here for tour details.
