Israeli-born Pinchas Zukerman has kept his face and music before the public for more than four decades with his wide range of activities: he is a world-class violinist, violist, conductor and administrator. He has recently announced his decision to step down as music director of Ottawa's National Arts Center Orchestra. He remains as chief guest conductor at the RPO.
