ALAN GILBERT MUSIC DIRECTOR


For me, conducting is all about encouraging and helping the players to really give of themselves – it’s all about chemistry. The sound the musicians of the Philharmonic make and the commitment to the music they bring are truly magical. – Alan Gilbert


A SEASON OF BRILLIANT NIGHTS

The 2013–14 New York Philharmonic season features more than 100 extraordinary evenings (and matinees) of the best music-making you’ll hear anywhere. Here are a few highlights. YEFIM BRONFMAN ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE “Mr. Bronfman can seemingly play anything. . . An astonishing performance. . . brilliant and triumphant.” (The New York Times) The acclaimed pianist joins us for 23 performances in New York and Asia, including subscription performances of Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto Sept. 26–Oct. 1, and Magnus Lindberg’s Piano Concerto No. 2 Jan. 2–7, both conducted by Alan Gilbert. Yefim Bronfman

Yefim Bronfman is The Mary and James D. Wallach Artist-in-Residence.

THE BEETHOVEN PIANO CONCERTOS: A PHILHARMONIC FESTIVAL

Alan Gilbert

Alan Gilbert, conductor. Yefim Bronfman, soloist June 11–28 It’s always a must-see when Yefim Bronfman plays Beethoven. This season, though, our Artist-in-Residence will perform all five Beethoven Piano Concertos – plus the Triple Concerto with violinist Glenn Dicterow and Principal Cellist Carter Brey – in a remarkable three-week festival. The festival includes World Premieres of new works by Sean Shepherd and Anthony Cheung, commissioned as part of The Marie-Josée Kravis Prize for New Music.

BEETHOVEN’S SYMPHONY NO. 9, “ODE TO JOY” The New York Philharmonic gave the U.S. premiere of this towering masterpiece in 1846, but hasn’t performed it since 2004. These concerts include the U.S. Premiere of Mark-Anthony Turnage’s Frieze, co-commissioned with the Royal Philharmonic Society (which commissioned Beethoven’s Ninth in 1817), and BBC Radio 3. Alan Gilbert conducts, Oct. 3–9.

CHRISTOPHER ROUSE COMPOSER-IN-RESIDENCE Christopher Rouse

One of America’s “loftiest, most passionate and most sincere composers” (critic Justin Davidson) contributes numerous Premieres to our season: the World Premiere of his Symphony (June 5–7), the New York premiere of his Oboe Concerto (Nov. 14–19), and the New York Premiere of his Requiem on May 5, opening the Spring for Music Festival at Carnegie Hall. Alan Gilbert and the Philharmonic will also perform Rouse’s Rapture (Jan. 2–7). Christopher Rouse is The Marie-Josée Kravis Composer-in-Residence.

GLENN DICTEROW FAREWELL Glenn Dicterow

Acclaimed for his “flashing virtuosity. . . admirable elegance and utter fearlessness,” (The New York Times) the Philharmonic’s Concertmaster crowns his 34-year tenure with a recital performance of personal favorites on January 19. He is also featured in Strauss’s Also sprach Zarathustra and Don Juan (Nov. 14–19) and Ein Heldenleben (Dec. 12–14), and with Yefim Bronfman and Carter Brey in Beethoven’s Triple Concerto (June 24–28).

YOUNG PEOPLE’S CONCERTS

points of entry

A work of genius contains a wealth of past influences along with the seeds of new musical growth. This season, each Young People’s Concert focuses on a single great score, through which we will explore facets of music and the orchestra itself. Saturday, October 12, 2013, 2:00 p.m. Ludwig van beethoven Symphony No. 9 Beethoven’s Ninth represents a huge creative leap. It takes the symphonic form into uncharted territory not only with its choral finale, the “Ode to Joy,” but also with three other movements of unprecedented depth. Saturday, December 7, 2013, 2:00 p.m. WOLFGANG amadeus mozart Symphony No. 41, Jupiter In the finale of his last symphony, Mozart builds a simple motif, familiar for centuries, into a sublime expression of humanity. Saturday, February 1, 2014, 2:00 p.m. benjamin britten The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra

Each Young People’s Concert is preceded at 12:45pm by Kidzone Live! – an interactive music fair where kids can try out instruments, play musical games, and preview the theme of the day’s concert. Bring your child to join the fun! Young People’s Concerts are hosted by Theodore Wiprud, Vice President, Education. Major support provided by the William Randolph Hearst Foundation. Additional support from The Theodore H. Barth Foundation and the Rose M. Badgeley Residuary Charitable Trust. MetLife Foundation is the Lead Corporate Underwriter for the New York Philharmonic’s Education Programs.

Britten’s beloved Guide, composed for an educational film in 1946, strikes a unique balance between music of the past and future. Through this work, meet the virtuosic musicians and sections of the New York Philharmonic. Saturday, April 12, 2014, 2:00 p.m. johannes brahms Piano Concerto No. 1 Johannes Brahms struggled for years to complete his first major orchestral work. It finally took the form of a concerto for piano and orchestra that still sounds brash and uncompromising.
