VIDEO: Gala Goings-On

The buzz of activity — behind the scenes and onstage, before and during the concert — that made the New York Philharmonic's Opening Gala Concert the place to be on September 25, 2013, included: arrivals, receptions, orchestra and audience standing for the National Anthem, Audra McDonald taping her commentary for the concert's future Live From Lincoln Center telecast, and the rousing conclusion with Ravel's Boléro.

VIDEO: It Takes Yo-Yo To Tango

When Yo-Yo Ma premiered Osvaldo Golijov's Azul, the Los Angeles Times couldn't say enough good things about the collaboration: "Of all the music written for Ma, this one captures him most fully.... Ma and Golijov are artists made for each other.”

Yo-Yo Ma headlines the Philharmonic's Opening Gala with Azul and Piazzolla's La serie del Ángel, and Alan Gilbert can't wait: "It's a dream to have Yo-Yo Ma opening the season."

Hear more of Alan's thoughts on Yo-Yo, Golijov, and Piazzolla in this video.
