This past weekend, the New York Philharmonic concluded its 2023 residency at The McKnight Center for the Performing Arts at Oklahoma State University (OSU). The third year of a three-year partnership among the NY Phil, the McKnight Center, and OSU comprised three orchestral concerts, a chamber-music concert for young people, and educational activities, including masterclasses for OSU students led by 15 NY Phil musicians.
Music Director Jaap van Zweden conducted masterpieces by Copland, Beethoven, Dvořák, and more, and was joined by soloists including violinist Stefan Jackiw and pianist Anne-Marie McDermott. On the residency’s second concert, van Zweden shared the podium with guest conductor Jeff Tyzik, who led the Philharmonic in a selection of film scores, including NY Phil Principal Trumpet Christopher Martin’s reprisal of music from a John Williams soundtrack he premiered.
