June will bring the return of "Yiddish Cabaret". We'll open in Cologne's Philharmonie, followed by a visit to our friends at the Schubertiade in Hohenems. After a return to Zurich's Tonhalle, we'll travel to Ukraine, to perform "Yiddish" in Odessa. This will be a particularly meaningful trip for all of us. The tour will end in Amsterdam's Concertgebouw, with a program of Mozart, Schulhoff and Shostakovich.

Towards the end of the month, we'll join our dear friend Pinchas Zukerman for a Beethoven celebration at London's Cadogan Hall. In addition to Quartets Op.18 No.3, Op.59 No.3, Op.95 and Op. 135, we'll be joined by Zukerman for the rarely played gem, the string quintet Op.29.
