Henryk Szeryng & Israel Philharmonic Orchestra: Tchaikovsky's Concerto For Violin & Orchestra

Henryk Szeryng and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, with Zubin Mehta conducting, perform Tchaikovsky Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in D major, opus 35, at The Huberman Festival, 1983. Szeryng’s life shows to a large degree that music is international, transcending both time and space: a Jew born in Poland (1918) who lived and was a citizen of Mexico from 1946 until his death in 1988, age 69, playing a Russian composition in Israel. To add further to the international scope of this performance, Tchaikovsky wrote this piece in Switzerland in 1878.
