Morning of the concert Carnegie - Click to see more...

The pressure is always on at Carnegie Hall, but last night’s concert was a great IPO event.  The concert opened with Dan Moshyev’s drum solo in Avner Dorman’s Azerbaijan Dance.  Yefim Bronfman joined the IPO for the Liszt Second Piano Concerto and then Zubin Mehta and the orchestra performed Mahler’s Fifth Symphony.

All three of the thousand seats of beautiful, historic Carnegie Hall were full.  The Israeli Ambassador, Michael Oren enjoyed the concert with his wife and immediately after the concert, the American Friends of the IPO held a gala dinner at the Plaza Hotel.
