The Philharmonic performed its final concert in Seoul, South Korea — an all-American program — before heading to Japan for performances in Nagoya and Osaka. Along the way they teamed up with jazz pianist Makoto Ozone for a swinging account of Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue and gave masterful performances of music by Christopher Rouse, Bernstein, Tchaikovsky, and more.

Alan Gilbert’s Tchaikovsky 5 ‘Bespoke and Modeled with Style’: N.Y. Times

Alan Gilbert 

Alan Gilbert made Tchaikovsky’s Fifth feel “bespoke and modeled with style,” The New York Times said of Thursday’s concert.

Critic Steve Smith added that Lindberg’s Piano Concerto No. 2 “constantly seduces with its arresting instrumental textures and barreling energy. Mr. Bronfman’s electric presence ... cause[d] a hearty roar”; and Rouse’s Rapture “elicited positively glorious sounds from the orchestra.”

Smith noted how rare second or third hearings of major new works are, adding: "credit, then, goes to Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic, who have provided a chance to hear" the Lindberg concerto again.

The Financial Times' Martin Bernheimer echoed this: "Alan Gilbert, a maestro who plays by his own rules, apparently doesn’t care [that second performances are rare]."

Michael Cameron, in New York Classical Review, praised Gilbert's direction in the Tchaikovsky, "from the vigorous sweep and structural integrity of the opening movement to the hushed urgency and propulsive drive of the Scherzo. ... Gilbert received sustained warm and richly deserved applause from both audience and orchestra."​

PHOTOS: The Return to Vail

The Philharmonic has traded New York for cooler climes: the Bravo! Vail festival in the heart of Colorado's Rocky Mountains. The Orchestra has already performed three concerts there, and made time for workshops with Very Young Composers of Vail. Check out photos from the residency thus far.
