NEW YORK — The Vienna Philharmonic recently presented Zubin Mehta with its Ring of Honor.
The presentation was made in Vienna, in observance of the 25th anniversary of Mehta's first appearance with that orchestra.
The ring was instituted early in this century as a sign of appreciation and sympathy of the orchestra for an artist.
Mehta has been music director of the New York Philharmonic since 1978. He held the same post with the Los Angeles Philharmonic for the 16 years before that.
