Igor Levit and the legendary Israel Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of its new principal conductor, the celebrated Lahav Shani – what an amazing line-up!

The orchestra’s young new principal conductor Lahav Shani has had a meteoric rise to fame. Succeeding Zubin Mehta, he is only the Israel Philharmonic’s second music director since its foundation in 1936. He has established himself as one of the most talked about conducting talents internationally, leaving a huge impression with his amazing maturity and natural, instinctive musicality. “You don’t have to be a prophet to predict a great career for Lahav Shani,” wrote the press about his 2021 New Year’s Eve concert with the Berlin Philharmonic.
