Pinchas Zukerman

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. The name Pinchas Zukerman is equally respected as violinist, violist, conductor, pedagogue and chamber musician.

Pinchas Zukerman's 2015-2016 season includes over 100 worldwide performances, bringing him to multiple destinations in North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia. In his seventh season as Principal Guest Conductor of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London, he leads the ensemble in concerts at home in the United Kingdom as well as on an extensive U.S. tour. Additional orchestral engagements include the Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Dallas and New World Symphonies, and Orpheus Chamber Orchestra for tour dates including New York’s Carnegie Hall. Overseas he visits the Mariinsky, Korean Chamber and San Carlo Orchestras, tours with Salzburg Camerata and Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz and returns to Australia for appearances with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra in Brisbane and West Australian Symphony Orchestra in Perth. Recital appearances in the United States, United Kingdom, France and Australia, and tours with the Zukerman Trio in the US, Italy, Spain, Australia, Japan and throughout South America round out the season. In 2016, he begins his tenure as Artist-in-Association with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra.

Over the last decade, Pinchas Zukerman has become as equally regarded a conductor as he is an instrumentalist, leading many of the world's top ensembles in a wide variety of the orchestral repertoire's most demanding works. A devoted and innovative pedagogue, Mr. Zukerman chairs the Pinchas Zukerman Performance Program at the Manhattan School of Music, where he has pioneered the use of distance-learning technology in the arts. In Canada, where he served as Music Director of the National Arts Centre Orchestra for the past 17 seasons, he established the NAC Institute for Orchestra Studies and the Summer Music Institute encompassing the Young Artists, Conductors and Composers Programs.

Born in Tel Aviv in 1948, Pinchas Zukerman came to America in 1962 where he studied at The Juilliard School with Ivan Galamian. He has been awarded the Medal of Arts, the Isaac Stern Award for Artistic Excellence and was appointed as the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative's first instrumentalist mentor in the music discipline. Pinchas Zukerman's extensive discography contains over 100 titles, and has earned him 2 Grammy awards and 21 nominations. This season sees the release of Brahms’s Symphony No. 4 and Double Concerto with the National Arts Centre Orchestra and cellist Amanda Forsyth, recorded in live performances at Ottawa’s Southam Hall.
