Jeffrey Milarsky by Peter Konerko New York Philharmonic

Conductor

Making his sixth appearance as part of the New York Philharmonic’s CONTACT! series, American conductor Jeffrey Milarsky is acclaimed worldwide for his impeccable musicianship, exhilarating presence, and innovative programming. His repertoire ranges from J.S. Bach to Xenakis. In recent seasons he has worked with ensembles including the San Francisco Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Milwaukee Symphony, MET Chamber Ensemble, Bergen Philharmonic, New World Symphony, and Tanglewood Festival orchestras. Mr. Milarsky has a long history of premiering, recording, and performing works by American composers, which was reflected in his recently receiving the prestigious Ditson Conductor’s Award, established in 1945 and the oldest award honoring conductors for their commitment to the performance of American music (past honorees include Leonard Bernstein, Leopold Stokowski, and Alan Gilbert). A dedicated teacher, Jeffrey Milarsky is a senior lecturer in music at Columbia University, where he is the music director and conductor of the Columbia University Orchestra. In addition to conducting the Juilliard Orchestra, he is the music director of AXIOM, The Juilliard School’s critically acclaimed contemporary-music ensemble, and serves on the conducting faculty.

AXIOM

AXIOM

Axiom

AXIOM, led by music director Jeffrey Milarsky, is dedicated to performing the masterworks of the 20th- and 21st-century repertoire. Since its 2006 debut in Avery Fisher (now David Geffen) Hall, the group has established itself as a leading ensemble in New York City’s contemporary music scene with performances throughout Lincoln Center, in addition to frequent appearances at Columbia University’s Miller Theatre and (Le) Poisson Rouge in Greenwich Village.

Work in the ensemble is grounded in The Juilliard School’s curriculum, with students receiving a credit in chamber music for participation. During any four-year period AXIOM members have the opportunity to perform works by John Adams, Harrison Birtwistle, Druckman, Magnus Lindberg, and Schoenberg, among others. Guest conductors have included Alan Gilbert, Susanna Mälkki, and David Robertson.

Highlights of the upcoming season include a performance of Louis Andriessen’s De Staat, as part of the New York Philharmonic’s The Art of Andriessen, on October 14, 2018; a concert on October 26 celebrating Juilliard faculty member John Corigliano’s 80th birthday and Juilliard alumnus Nico Muhly on the occasion of the performances of his new opera, Marnie, at The Metropolitan Opera; and a concert on April 18, 2019, featuring works by Xenakis, Caroline Shaw, and Juilliard alumnus Steve Reich.

Highlights of the 2017–18 season included a program dedicated to former Juilliard faculty member composer Jacob Druckman (also a former Philharmonic Composer-in-Residence); an all-Berio program; and a concert featuring Hans Abrahamsen’s Schnee.

In the 2016–17 season AXIOM honored composer John Adams on his 70th birthday; Juilliard alumnus Steve Reich on his 80th birthday; and performed a program devoted to the music of Kaija Saariaho.
