Mahler’s New York: A Digital Festival

Posted April 20, 2020

This past Thursday we launched Mahler’s New York: A Digital Festival (April 16–30), a two-week celebration of our former Music Director, one-time New Yorker, and beloved composer.

The digital festival comprises seven video broadcasts, audio of the complete symphonies, an online archival exhibit and virtual walking tour presented in partnership with Google Arts & Culture, recipes provided by Neue Galerie New York’s Café Sabarsky, activity guides for kids and families, musical telegrams from the musicians, and Mahler Grooves — a full day of Mahler fun.

Part of the fun is dropping content every day throughout the two weeks, to approximate the experience of a live, in-person festival. Here are this week’s highlights:

Next week, look forward to:

  • Monday, April 27, 7:30 p.m. EDT: rebroadcast of Mahler’s Symphony No. 7, with former Music Director Alan Gilbert conducting the Philharmonic alongside musicians from orchestras around the world
  • Tuesday, April 28: audio of Mahler’s symphony No. 9, led by Alan Gilbert
  • Wednesday, April 29: audio of Mahler’s Symphony No. 10 from two recordings, one led by Dimitri Mitropoulos and the other led by Daniel Harding
  • Thursday, April 30 at 7:30 p.m. EDT: first-ever rebroadcast of Mahler’s Symphony No. 2, Resurrection, led by Leonard Bernstein in 1963 in tribute to JFK two days after the assassination
