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.

Traffic Jammin'

Joseph Alessi New York Legends

Riding in his sports car from his home in New Jersey to Avery Fisher Hall, Principal Trombone Joseph Alessi gets stuck in traffic at the entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel. Unfazed, Alessi grabs his trombone and serenades his fellow commuters. 

This never happened, but it’s what composer-conductor Bramwell Tovey imagines in his 2006 piece The Lincoln Tunnel Cabaret, written for his friend Alessi. 

“In New York, anything can happen,” quips Tovey. 

He conducts Alessi and the Orchestra in the World Premiere of the work’s orchestral version tonight and tomorrow at “Star-Spangled Celebration,” the opening program of the Philharmonic’s annual Summertime Classics series, and again at Bravo! Vail.

Grandeur and a Groundbreaker in Dresden

This week the Orchestra traveled to Dresden for two concerts, each with a very different flavor. The first featured Mozart, Bloch, and Musorgsky at Dresden's grand Semperoper. The second, Webcast live around the world from Volkswagen's Transparent Factory, featured Magnus Lindberg's theatrical, out-of-the-box Kraft,as well as Christopher Rouse's Prospero's Rooms and Bernstein's Serenade with violinist Joshua Bell.
