Murray Perahia for the Holocaust Remembrance Day of the Jews of Thessaloniki
7th of December 2017
Murray Perahia, whose exceptional career has spanned more than forty years, is one of today’s most celebrated pianists. The Thessaloniki State Symphony Orchestra and the Thessaloniki Concert Hall in collaboration with the Jewish Community of Thessaloniki honor the Holocaust Remembrance Day of the Jews of Thessaloniki and the 70th anniversary of the Israeli Declaration of Independence with this special guest, whose presence in Thessaloniki has a greater importance due to the fact that his family was living here before migrating to the U.S.A.. Zoi Tsokanou is conducting the Thessaloniki State Symphony Orchestra. The Programme consists of Gustav Mahler’s Adagietto from Symphony No.5 and Ludwig van Beethoven’s Piano concerto No.5 in E-flat major, op.73.
