PHOTOS: Chinese New Year Concert and Gala

On February 24 the New York Philharmonic welcomed the Year of the Sheep at its fourth-annual Chinese New Year Concert and Gala. Philharmonic supporters gathered for a cocktail reception, dinner, and the concert itself — spotlighting cello virtuoso Yo-Yo Ma, sheng master Wu Tong, vocalist Lei Jia, and ghijak player Gulinaer Yiming with the New York Philharmonic, conducted by Long Yu. Check out photos from the festive evening.

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.
