Lima hosted its first concert of the Israel Philharmonic on Thursday night.  Although the downtown is a crowded mix of colonial buildings and urban sprawl with dusty traffic jams and millions of people on the streets, the Gran Teatro Nacional is a beautiful modern concert hall.

Special visitor Charles Bronfman enjoyed Mozart and Mahler from the first row and later joined the orchestra, Zubin and friends from America for a reception.
