The soloist whom The New York Times acclaimed for his “fiery vibrato, dramatic phrasing, richly voiced yet crisp forzando chords,” and called “a charismatic protagonist and a generous collaborator” in Dvořák’s beloved Cello Concerto. The conductor who led the concert with “decisive urgency” and who delivered “a slow burn that built toward truly stirring finales.” Altogether, “an evening of bold, charismatic musical storytelling.”
Sorry you missed it? Don’t be! The New York Philharmonic debut of Sheku Kanneh-Mason — the cellist who took the world by storm at the 2018 Royal wedding — and the return of conductor Simone Young is now available on NYPhil+, our streaming platform presenting hours of historic and newly recorded performances.
The November 2021 program, which took place at Alice Tully Hall, also features two of the three Bs of classical music: Webern’s respectful yet powerful orchestration of J.S. Bach’s Fuga (Ricercata) from Musical Offering, and Brahms’s Symphony No. 1.
The concert will be available on NYPhil+ for 90 days.
