Alan Gilbert’s Final Weeks: Website Celebrates Highlights of His Tenure

Posted May 08, 2017


Alan Gilbert’s final weeks as Music Director are under way, with a sold-out and critically acclaimed program featuring Schoenberg’s A Survivor from Warsaw and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 concluding tomorrow night.

Relive the magic of the combination of Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic through the celebratory website that captures highlights of his tenure as Music Director through video, audio, and photos, available at Watch video of staged productions he led including Ligeti’s Le Grand Macabre, slideshows, complete concert audio, and more. You can even send a message of thanks and farewell to “the imaginative maestro-impresario in residence” (The Financial Times).

His final four programs — reflecting signature themes of his tenure and featuring works that hold particular meaning for him and musicians with whom he has formed close relationships — then continue with New York Premieres by Kravis Emerging Composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir and Composer-in-Residence Esa-Pekka Salonen, plus Artist-in-Residence Leonidas Kavakos’s final residency performance with Brahms’s Violin Concerto; an enhanced concert production of Wagner’s complete Das Rheingold; and Alan Gilbert Season Finale: A Concert for Unity, celebrating the power of music to build bridges and unite people across borders.
