Three Violin Concertos
Sunday, June 9th, at 3:00 p.m. and
Tuesday, June 11th, at 7:30 p.m.
If you enjoy music for the violin, this concert is for you.
Distinguished violinist Jacques Israelievitch will return to San Diego to perform with the Tifereth Israel Community Orchestra in two concerts in June. Israelievitch will perform three violin concertos, The E Major Violin Concerto by J.C. Bach, and the monumental concertos by Beethoven and Brahms.
Israelievitch was the youngest graduate of the Le Mans Conservatory – at the age of 11. He continued his musical education at the Paris Conservatory, followed by Indiana University, where he studied with Josef Gingold, Janos Starker, and Menachem Pressler. And this is where conductor David Amos met him. In 1972, Sir Georg Solti appointed him as assistant concertmaster of the Chicago Symphony, and he later served as concertmaster of the St. Louis and Toronto Symphonies.
In 1995, Israelievitch was knighted by the French Court, with the Chevalier Order of Arts and Letters. In 2004, he was made Officer of the Order. Need we say more?
