Zubin Mehta to conduct in Belgrade on his farewell tour

The great conductor Zubin Mehta will perform in Belgrade with the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra at Kolarceva Zaduzbina on 18th March, 2018 at 8pm as a part of this farewell tour.

Director of the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra, Ivan Tasovic revealed this at a press conference. He will be accompanied by Aleksandar Madzar on the piano. The concert is expected to generate a great interest and the tickets will probably be sold very quickly.

“We are going to create the same concert programme as the one when Mehta was conducting in Belgrade some 60 years ago – Debussy’s ‘The Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun’, Franck’s ‘Symphonic Variations”, and Berlioz’s ‘Fantastic Symphony’. Aleksandar Madzar will accompany the maestro on the piano”, Tasovac added.

Two months ago. The 80-year-old Mehta announced his retirement in October 2019. Mehta, who is considered one of the greatest living conductors, performed a total eight times with the Belgrade Philharmonics, and, during his last performance in Belgrade in 2015, he said that he would like to celebrate the jubilee of his conducting debut with the Belgrade Philharmonics.

Zubin Mehta is a music director for life of the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra which he conducted in many concerts and tours. Recently, he also celebrated 50th anniversary of conducting the Vienna and Berlin philharmonic orchestras.
