[The Times of Israel] Israeli composer’s new double concerto is a gift to Zukerman — and the world

Pinchas                Zukerman and Amanda Forsyth receive flowers at the end of                the June 27, 2019 world premiere of Avner Dorman’s ‘Double                Concerto for Violin, Cello and Orchestra,’ with the                Adelaide Symphony Orchestra (Courtesy/Kirshbaum                Associates)

“The Double Concerto for Violin and Cello and Orchestra,” composed by fellow Israeli Avner Dorman, will have its US debut on Sunday, August 4, at Tanglewood. It will be performed  by the Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO) under the baton of Israeli conductor Asher Fisch.

Zukerman and Canadian cellist Amanda Forsyth are the soloists for the performance at the BSO’s summer home, nestled in the rolling hills of the Berkshires.

The richly vibrant work was co-commissioned in honor of Zukerman’s 70th birthday by the BSO, Canada’s National Arts Centre Orchestra, and the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, where Zukerman and Forsyth performed its world premiere at the end of June, conducted by Benjamin Northey. Zukerman serves as the ASO’s artist-in-association.
