PHOTOS: Final Concert in Vail

The Philharmonic's 12th-annual summer residency at Bravo! Vail concluded Saturday night with a sold-out, all-Russian concert. Flanked by the majestic Rockies, the Orchestra wowed the crowd with Shostakovich, Rachmaninoff, Musorgsky, and Tchaikovsky, with Bramwell Tovey on the podium and pianist Joyce Yang as soloist.

The New York Philharmonic is back in picturesque Colorado for its 13th annual summer residency at Bravo! Vail. Over the weekend the Orchestra performed the first three concerts of its six-concert residency. The ever-witty Bramwell Tovey led two programs — one with pianist Jon Kimura Parker, the other with pianist Anne-Marie McDermott — and former Philharmonic Assistant Conductor Joshua Weilerstein reunited with the Philharmonic and his sister, cellist Alisa Weilerstein, for Tchaikovsky. Plus Philharmonic musicians worked with the Very Young Composers of Vail.

The New York Philharmonic's 12th-annual summer residency at Bravo! Vail continued last night with a rousing all-American program. Bramwell Tovey led Copland's Clarinet Concerto with Associate Principal Clarinet Mark Nuccio in the spotlight — plus Gershwin favorites, Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man, and Grofé's Grand Canyon Suite.

The encore? Sousa's Stars and Stripes Forever, of course.

Traffic Jammin'

Joseph Alessi New York Legends

Riding in his sports car from his home in New Jersey to Avery Fisher Hall, Principal Trombone Joseph Alessi gets stuck in traffic at the entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel. Unfazed, Alessi grabs his trombone and serenades his fellow commuters. 

This never happened, but it’s what composer-conductor Bramwell Tovey imagines in his 2006 piece The Lincoln Tunnel Cabaret, written for his friend Alessi. 

“In New York, anything can happen,” quips Tovey. 

He conducts Alessi and the Orchestra in the World Premiere of the work’s orchestral version tonight and tomorrow at “Star-Spangled Celebration,” the opening program of the Philharmonic’s annual Summertime Classics series, and again at Bravo! Vail.
