    Zubin Mehta & the Los Angeles Philharmonic

    As Music Director for Life of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, Zubin Mehta has conducted over three thousand concerts with this extraordinary ensemble, including tours spanning five continents. He will end his tenure with the IPO in October 2019, more than 50 years after his debut. Mehta was the Music Director of the New York Philharmonic for 13 years, the longest in the orchestra's history. Since 1985, he has been chief conductor of the Orchestra del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino in Florence. Zubin Mehta is also a beloved former Music Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra and he returns to Los Angeles for a classic combination of Mozart and Bruckner, featuring the latter's powerful but poignantly unfinished final symphony.
