First tour in New Zealand. Plays with the Trio for the Montreal World Exhibition. After the coup in Greece, welcomes his friend Manos Hadjidakis to his apartment in New York. Fulfills his contract for two concerts with the Trio at the Herode Atticus Theater, but voices his disapproval and refuses to perform in Greece from then on. His support was acknowledged in 1974 by the new Greek democratic authorities. Participates again in the Israel Festival, with the Trio and as the soloist of the Israel Philharmonic (Brahms Second under Josef Krips). Ends the year in Europe (concerts in England, Switzerland and France).
