Album coincides with the conductor’s first international tour with the orchestra  since he became its Music Director 
Lahav Shani, 33, became Music Director of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra in the 2020-21 season as successor to the legendary Zubin Mehta. Also a hugely accomplished instrumentalist, he spent several years as a double bassist within the orchestra’s ranks and appeared as solo pianist with his fellow players aged just 18.  He and the orchestra are now set to release a live recording of one of the great landmarks of twentieth-century Israeli music. Their Deutsche Grammophon e-album of Paul Ben-Haim’s Symphony No.1 will be available from 28 October 2022, issued in advance of their much-anticipated nine-concert tour of the United States in November.
