Each musician in the New York Philharmonic is a true virtuoso. Beginning today until December 15, you can revel in their talents up close on NYPhil+. Four new programs present a variety of players from the string, wind, and brass sections performing chamber music composed across the centuries.
Daniela Candillari Conducts Philharmonic Brass: the conductor who led our performances of Thomson’s The Mother of Us All returns to head the Philharmonic brass in a bravura program of works by composers ranging from Bruckner to Dorothy Gates, the first woman to be an official composer with The Salvation Army Band.
Webern and Beethoven String Quartets: the New York Philharmonic String Quartet performs Webern’s Langsamer Satz of 1905, and Beethoven’s F-minor Quartetto serioso.
Chamber Music Gems: string and woodwind players are joined by harp and piano for works by J.S. Bach, Françaix, and Mendelssohn.
A Trio of Trios: musicians bring their artistry and expertise to this combination of works by two French composers, Poulenc and Debussy, and a serenade by the Hungarian Dohnányi.
The performances were captured at the Kaufman Music Center’s Merkin Hall and at Manhattan School of Music’s Neidorff-Karpati Hall in the fall of 2020 and winter of 2021. Catch them before December 15 and browse through the offerings for full orchestra on NYPhil+.
