  1. Following five sold-out concerts in three cities, the New York Philharmonic has returned home from its first trip to Asia since 2019. The Tour to Taiwan & Hong Kong, conducted by Music Director Jaap van Zweden, included appearances in Taipei, Kaohsiung, and Hong Kong, with the Orchestra performing symphonic masterpieces by Beethoven, Dvořák, Tchaikovsky, and — joined by violinist Hilary Hahn, the NY Phil’s 2023–24 season Mary and James G. Wallach Artist-in-Residence — Brahms’s Violin Concerto. Following the tour a group of musicians returned to Shanghai for the first live activities in the Shanghai Orchestra Academy and Partnership in four years. The Presenting Sponsor for the tour and the partnership is Starr International Foundation.

  2. The New York Philharmonic made its triumphant return to international touring — following two years in which the pandemic kept the Orchestra homebound — with its first-ever appearances at the Usedom Music Festival, on an island in the Baltic Sea, and became the first US orchestra to travel overseas since the pandemic. Music Director Jaap van Zweden and the Orchestra performed a series of concerts at the Peenemünde Historical Technical Museum, the site of a former Nazi weapon testing facility during World War II — a transformation that is a statement of peace, freedom, and unity among nations. Joining them as soloists were pianist Jan Lisiecki, violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter, and baritone Thomas Hampson, and the repertoire ranged from Beethoven and Bartók to European premieres by Nina Shekhar and Joan Tower. The festival also marked a collaboration with the Baltic Sea Philharmonic, with members of that orchestra joining in the performance of Shostakovich’s Ninth Symphony, and joining New York Philharmonic players for chamber concerts featuring works by Barber, Brahms, and Mozart.

  3. The New York Philharmonic’s fifth annual trip to China as part of the Shanghai Orchestra Academy and Partnership, presented by Starr International Foundation, concluded with the Orchestra’s debut in Nanjing. Then the musicians returned to Shanghai, where they taught the next generation of orchestral musicians at the Shanghai Orchestra Academy — a two-year post-graduate program co-founded by the Philharmonic — and regaled audiences in two concerts led by Music Director Jaap van Zweden.
