Israel’s foremost chamber orchestra, the Israel Camerata Jerusalem Orchestra, featuring acclaimed cellist Zvi Plesser, makes its Australian debut performing two magnificent programs at City Recital Hall this September.

Renowned for its “effortless virtuosity, tight instrumental balances and a broad dynamic palette”(LA Times), founder and conductor Avner Biron has brought the Israel Camerata Jerusalem Orchestra to the highest standard in Israeli musical life, and won worldwide recognition for it.

Based in Israel, Zvi Plesser has appeared as a soloist with some of our time’s leading orchestras and conductors including the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, Academy of Saint Martin in the Fields under Sir Neville Marriner and the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Maestro Sir Simon Rattle.

The programs include Dvořák’s impassioned cello concerto – one of the most magnificent in the repertoire, Ukrainian/Israel composer Mark Koptyman’s landmark works Beyond all this… and Kaddish – inspired by the intricate melodic beauty of Jewish sacred and folk music, Haydn’s joyous Symphony No.85 and the pulse-quickening highly virtuosic Cello Concerto in C major.
