What's New

  1. On Tuesday, February 20, the New York Philharmonic held its annual Lunar New Year Concert and Gala at David Geffen Hall, welcoming the Year of the Dragon in style. Distinguished guests and friends of the Orchestra came out for the festive evening, which honored philanthropist, business entrepreneur, and NY Phil Board Member Misook Doolittle in a celebration of cultural heritage, new beginnings, and music’s capacity to transcend borders.

    The successful Gala — which garnered $1.2 million for the Philharmonic, the most raised by any Lunar New Year Gala thus far — centered on the concert. Long Yu conducted the Orchestra and charismatic soloists in Western and Asian orchestral music, including beloved works by Bruch and Saint-Saëns and premieres by Elliot Leung and Zhou Tian. Following the concert, the guests and artists dined together on the Leon and Norma Hess Grand Promenade, capping off a joyous evening for all. Next week Long Yu returns to lead the US Premiere of Émigré, a work co-commissioned by Yu, the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, and the NY Phil.

  2. The New York Philharmonic announced today that Gustavo Dudamel — our future Oscar L. Tang and H.M. Agnes Hsu-Tang Music and Artistic Director — will join the Orchestra in April for a weeklong celebration of music education, part of our season-long celebration of the centennial of the beloved Young People’s Concerts.

    As the centerpiece of the week, Dudamel will lead the Orchestra in our annual Spring Gala concert, on April 24, which also features an eclectic group of soloists: artist, actor, author, and activist Common; soprano Hera Hyesang Park; and — a most familiar face to New Yorkers — guitarist and former Yankees centerfielder Bernie Williams. The NY Phil will also perform several works side-by-side with student musicians from communities across New York City.

  3. NY Phil Remembers David Del Tredici

    Posted November 20, 2023

    The New York Philharmonic mourns the passing of David Del Tredici — a prominent composer of the latter half of the 20th century with a longstanding NY Phil association — who died Saturday at the age of 86.

    Del Tredici, who became part of the New Romanticism movement, was deeply indebted to his literary influences, setting to music works by James Joyce and Lewis Carroll. It was Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, in particular, that would yield some of the most notable compositions of his career, culminating in Final Alice, which the New York Philharmonic co-commissioned as part of the National Endowment for the Arts’s celebration of the American Bicentennial, in 1976.

    His association with the New York Philharmonic would continue in the years to follow: the Orchestra gave the US Premiere of Del Tredici’s Tattoo in 1988, led by Laureate Conductor Leonard Bernstein; the World Premiere of Steps for Orchestra in 1990, led by then Music Director Zubin Mehta; and the World Premiere of The Spider and the Fly in 1998 — an NY Phil commission as part of the Orchestra’s 150th-anniversary celebration — led by then Music Director Kurt Masur. Additionally, Del Tredici served as the NY Phil’s composer-in-residence from 1988–90.

    The NY Phil extends deepest sympathies to Del Tredici’s family and friends.
