Zubin Mehta, conductor
If you’re looking for a legend, look no further than Zubin Mehta, indisputably the world’s top living conductor for generations now. He’s held the position of Musical Director of a staggering number of the world’s great orchestras: the Montreal Symphony, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Israel Philharmonic, and the New York Philharmonic.
He appears in Bangkok with the Symphony Orchestra of Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, of which he spent decades as Principal Conductor and is now Honorary Director for life – naturally, this century-old storied teatro has dedicated their new auditorium to him.
You can find Mehta’s star on the Hollywood Boulevard Walk of Fame. He received the “Praemium Imperiale” from the Japanese imperial family, the Cross of Merit of the German Federal Republic, and the Tagore Award for cultural harmony from the Indian government. Musical genius run in his bloodstream – his violinist father founded the Bombay Symphony Orchestra – and the Festival is overjoyed to present this megastar of music.
