Zubin Mehta conducts the Israel Philharmonic in two major symphonic works: Mozart’s Jupiter Symphony, his last and one of his most important symphonies, and Mahler’s Fifth.

The Orchestra has been booked thanks to the generous support of a Greek from abroad, who wishes to remain anonymous.
The proceeds of the event will be donated for the purposes of the “ELIZA- Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children”

The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra was founded in 1936 by Bronislaw Huberman and its inaugural concert, on 26 December 1936, was conducted by Arturo Toscanini. The IPO plays in subscription series, including a special annotated Youth Concert Series, special concerts, concerts as part of the “Arts for the People” project throughout Israel, etc.
The IPO annually tours the world’s cultural centers and prestigious festivals. The orchestra has hosted most of the world’s greatest conductors and soloists, and it also does much to develop Israeli artists and young talents from Israel and abroad.
In 1969 Maestro Zubin Mehta was appointed Music Advisor to the IPO and in 1977 he became its Music Director. Leonard Bernstein was named IPO Laureate Conductor in 1988, in 1992 Kurt Masur was appointed Honorary Guest Conductor and since the 2001-02 season Yoel Levi has been Principal Guest Conductor of the IPO.
