Lahav Shani

The first concert of the season features three works, each expressing in its own way the search for peace and reconciliation.
The 2022-23 season opens with a programme that, like the rest of the season, has everything: Beethoven’s Ninth, a masterpiece of classical symphonic writing; Sibelius’ late-romantic Violin Concerto, the peak of soloistic virtuosity; and the Israel Philharmonic premiere of a work by Arvo Pärt, one of the most revered contemporary composers. In Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, Music Director Lahav Shani is joined by the Bach Choir of Munich, the Gary Bertini Israeli Choir and a quartet of international vocal soloists. The demanding and stormy Violin Concerto of Sibelius is performed by Sayaka Shoji.
