“The performance Mr. Gilbert drew from the Philharmonic was urgent, assured and luxuriously beautiful.” – The New York Times

Take your seat at a concert by Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic, and prepare yourself for a brilliant journey. Every performance is a ride. One that will transport you to unexpected places. It comes from the way Alan Gilbert conceives surprising and uniquely moving musical evenings that allow you to experience the music in a new way. It’s the fresh energy he brings to every performance, drawing acclaim from audiences and critics alike. And it’s the bond between conductor and musician that has The New York Times proclaiming, “The orchestra is playing splendidly for Mr. Gilbert. …the chemistry seems right.” Join us.
