P-Zuk’s in da house…

Yes, Pinchas Zukerman, aka P-Zuk (his rapper name), is leading the Oregon Symphony this week – most through his conducting, but also with some timely demonstrations on a surprised Assistant concertmaster Erin Furbee’s violin (I think she may never clean it again!).  The Zuk-meister will also be playing one of Haydn’s little-known violin concertos this weekend. Still gathering impressions so far, but a quick sound bite will suffice for now: Conductors come and go, but great musicians are to be cherished, no matter who great or minor their stick waving abilities. With guys like Pinchas, it’s possible just to gain musical knowledge by osmosis – the musicality just oozes out of his pores.
