Three-time Grammy-winning violinist, conductor, and music director Pinchas Zukerman has teamed up with four protégés from Canada's National Arts Centre Orchestra--including his wife, cellist Amanda Forsyth--to form this acclaimed ensemble featuring a formidable mixture of youth and experience. The Zukerman Chamber Players begin their Kennedy Center debut program with Mozart's richly textured String Quintet in C major. Young award-winning Israeli pianist Benjamin Hochman joins them for Dvorák's Piano Quintet in A major, a central Romantic-era masterwork overflowing with folk dance rhythms and melodic warmth.
