  1. 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.

  2. New York’s Orchestra Is Back! That was the very apt title of last night’s Gala evening with Itzhak Perlman. The heart of the evening was, of course the New York Philharmonic, with Music Director Jaap van Zweden conducting works by Mozart, Prokofiev, and Johann Strauss II, and joining the legendary violinist for Bruch’s beloved Violin Concerto No. 1.

  3. New York’s Orchestra Is Back

    Posted September 20, 2021

    After 556 days since the last concert in David Geffen Hall, Jaap van Zweden and the New York Philharmonic opened the 2021–22 season with a concert at Alice Tully Hall, one of the New York City venues where the Orchestra will perform through June. The program featured a tapestry of the classic and contemporary, tracing a journey from the contemplative and commemorative to virtuosic joy. Maestro and Orchestra were joined onstage by a poet, an internationally acclaimed guest soloist, and musicians from the Orchestra performing solos. Relive the evening that The New York Times called “a heartening return,” with a program that was “thoughtfully conceived and finely performed.” (Photos: Chris Lee, unless otherwise credited).
