Successful Debut with the Israel Symphony Orchestra Rishon LeZion (Orchestra of the Tel Aviv Opera)
In early March, Ruben Gazarian returned from a concert series with the Israel Symphony Orchestra Rishon LeZion (ISORL), which doubles as the resident orchestra of the Israeli Opera Tel Aviv. The programs included works by Haim Permont (a world premiere), Beethoven, Prokofiev, and Khachaturian. On each of the four nights, the conductor was enthusiastically acclaimed by audience and orchestra alike. After the Camerata Jerusalem and the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, the ISORL has been already the third Israeli orchestra with which Gazarian had his highly successful debut within the last year.
