About the album
Helicon is the label of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, whose chief conductor is Zubin Mehta since 1977.
This disc is another brilliant example of a long-lasting human friendhsip and musical collaboration between Zubin Mehta and his Israel Philharmonic with a great soloists. In this case it is the world-famous violinist Pinchas Zukerman.
The Elgar's Concerto is a real tour de force for its length (more than 45 minutes) and its difficulty. A live, immaculate performance such as Zukerman's is a remarkable achievement. The Bach Concerto is an ideal fill-up, as one fo the most beloved violin and orchestra works
