Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic were triumphant in back-to-back performances in Copenhagen, the last city on the EUROPE / SPRING 2017 tour. There they reunited with two of the soloists who had appeared throughout the tour: the soprano Christina Landshamer, for Mahler’s Fourth Symphony, and Frank Peter Zimmermann, for Prokofiev’s First Violin Concerto, in two sold-out, critically acclaimed concerts that were broadcast and shared online internationally.

The New York Philharmonic made its debut at the newly opened Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, where Alan Gilbert led acclaimed performances of music by Composer-in-Residence Esa-Pekka Salonen with Yo-Yo Ma, Mahler with Christina Landshamer, and John Adams with the New York Philharmonic String Quartet, which also performed a late-night chamber concert.

New York Philharmonic Percussion on the Road

New York Philharmonic Principal Percussion Christopher S. Lamb had to combine logistics with virtuosity during the Orchestra’s residency at the Barbican Centre in London, which featured works with large percussion complements, including Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Cello Concerto and music by John Adams. On April 2, 2017, he spoke onstage and off about the challenges of setting up all their instruments, and then joined Alan Gilbert and Yo-Yo Ma in the European Premiere of the Salonen work.
