Alan Gilbert

“The New York Philharmonic has always been and will always be my musical home. My final season as Music Director — and the Philharmonic’s 175th anniversary season — will present music that the Orchestra and I love, and will celebrate New York City, our shared hometown.”

So said Alan Gilbert about the programs and projects for 2016–17, his valedictory season as Music Director.

During his season-long salute, Alan Gilbert leads seven World, U.S., and New York Premieres as well as revered masterworks, including Messiah and Brahms and Mahler symphonies, impactful music by Ligeti and John Adams, and his 50th birthday party with many of his favorite collaborators. Before his New York farewell concerts as Music Director — when he returns to the Concerts in the Parks, Presented by Didi and Oscar Schafer — Alan Gilbert’s final four subscription programs present a focus on his passions and priorities, from Beethoven’s Ninth and Wagner to Schoenberg and Esa-Pekka Salonen, as well as a new project that explores how music and musicians can effect positive change and harmony in the world.

The 2016–17 season will be an opportunity to immerse yourself in the excitement and camaraderie of the Alan Gilbert era, a period marked by warmth and chemistry, expectation and excitement.

We invite you to honor Alan Gilbert in his farewell season as Music Director with a contribution to the Alan Gilbert Fund.
