With last month’s announcement of the 2021–22 season, our collective return to the concert hall this fall is one big step closer. But we’re still releasing newly recorded performances on NYPhil+, the Philharmonic’s streaming service, to tide you over!
Bronfman Plays Shostakovich is an enticing program captured in Alice Tully Hall, where next season opens on September 17. Music Director Jaap van Zweden conducts Lyric for Strings by the 20th century composer George Walker, composed in memory of his grandmother, an escaped slave. The formidable Yefim Bronfman, a longtime Philharmonic friend, joins Principal Trumpet Christopher Martin in Shostakovich’s uncharacteristically optimistic concerto. And the beautiful finale is Mozart’s intimate yet epic Gran Partita.
The concert will be available to stream for one year. Stream it at your convenience and discover our 50+ hours of wide-ranging performances on NYPhil+.
