Global Academy Update

New York Philharmonic Global Academy 

Alan Gilbert’s appearance earlier this week at Music Academy of the West — a Philharmonic Global Academy partner — has garnered raves! Gilbert led the Academy Festival Orchestra in a concert featuring works by Berg, Haydn, and Beethoven that was described by the Santa Barbara Independent as “an outstanding program” in which “Gilbert brought these excellent young musicians together in a thoroughly joyous achievement in music making.” 

Earlier this year, nine musicians from Music Academy of the West traveled to New York to participate in the Philharmonic’s Global Academy Fellowship program as part of the second year of the four-year partnership.

Musically excellent, educationally inspiring experiences like these are precisely why the Philharmonic founded the Global Academy. Learn more about it here, and watch out for the return to Santa Barbara by the full Philharmonic next summer, for the 70th Anniversary of Music Academy of the West.

Alan Gilbert Nominated for Emmy for Sinatra: Voice for a Century

Alan Gilbert Sinatra: Voice for a Century

To quote Ol' Blue Eyes himself, ring-a-ding-ding!

Yesterday Music Director Alan Gilbert was nominated for an Emmy for Best Musical Direction for Sinatra: Voice for a Century, which Live From Lincoln Center presented on PBS on December 18, 2015.

The nomination is the latest recognition of the versatility of Gilbert and the Philharmonic, who perform American popular song, musical theater, and opera with the same commitment to excellence they bring to classical music.

The concert, co-presented with Lincoln Center, took place December 3, 2015. It celebrated the 100th birthday of Sinatra through performances of songs with which he was closely associated. Performing them with the Philharmonic were Christina Aguilera, Chris Botti, Fantasia, Sutton Foster, Seth MacFarlane (who also hosted), Bernadette Peters, Sting, and others.

Second Annual Shanghai Performance Residency Concludes

Seven thousand miles and one week later, the New York Philharmonic's second annual Shanghai performance residency has come to a triumphant conclusion. The residency is part of the Shanghai Orchestra Academy and Residency Partnership (presented by The Starr International Foundation), a cornerstone and founding component of the New York Philharmonic Global Academy. The week of concerts and coachings wrapped up with violinist Gil Shaham and Philharmonic cellists in the solo spotlight, Chaplin’s City Lights screened with the score performed live, Very Young Composers, a side-by-side rehearsal with Shanghai Orchestra Academy students, and seminars, workshops, lessons, and coachings led by Philharmonic musicians and administration.

Second Annual Shanghai Performance Residency Begins

The New York Philharmonic has traveled 7,000 miles for the second annual Shanghai performance residency, July 2–8, part of the Shanghai Orchestra Academy and Residency Partnership, presented by The Starr International Foundation and a cornerstone and founding component of the New York Philharmonic Global Academy. There have been four concerts so far, including two performances with star soloist Daniil Trifonov, a Young People's Concert, and a free outdoor concert by the New York Philharmonic Principal Brass Quintet. Philharmonic musicians have also been busy teaching and coaching Shanghai Orchestra Academy students and inspiring Very Young Composers.

Jazzy Brass on a Shanghai Summer Night

Just weeks after the Concerts in the Parks, the New York Philharmonic brought its longstanding love of free outdoor concerts to Shanghai.

Here are excerpts of "New York, New York" and "That's a Plenty" from a free public outdoor concert at Shanghai's Urban Music Lawn performed by the New York Philharmonic Principal Brass Quintet on July 5, 2016, during the Philharmonic's second annual performance residency as part of its Shanghai Orchestra Academy and Residency Partnership.

Trifonov and Prokofiev in Shanghai

The Scherzo: Vivace from Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 2 is "a tour de force of perpetual motion," Michael Steinberg wrote. That also describes pianist Daniil Trifonov, who even dances a bit (1:07).

This is from a rehearsal in Shanghai Symphony Hall on July 2; the concert that night kicked off the New York Philharmonic's second annual performance residency as part of its Shanghai Orchestra Academy and Residency Partnership.
