Alice Sara Ott Performs Ravel

Apr 04 - Apr 06
Alice Sara Ott, in her NY Phil debut, performs Ravel’s lush, jazz-influenced G-major Piano Concerto. The program — led by Karina Canellakis, also in her NY Phil debut — begins with Webern’s remarkably spare, yet haunting Six Pieces. The concert’s two tone poems look past earthly life: Richard Strauss’s meditation on the death of an artist, and Scriabin’s mystical and rhapsodic Poem of Ecstasy.

Karina Canellakis Conductor

Internationally acclaimed for her emotionally charged performances, technical command, and interpretive depth, Karina Canellakis has become one of the most in-demand conductors of her generation. She is the chief conductor of the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra and the principal guest conductor of the London Philharmonic Orchestra. This season she serves as the featured artist-in-residence at Vienna’s famed Musikverein, where she conducts four different orchestras: the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic. The first woman to conduct the First Night of the BBC Proms in London, in 2019 with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, she returned to the Proms in 2022. She was also the first woman to conduct the Nobel Prize Concert with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic in 2018.
