New York Philharmonic Opening Night
The New York Philharmonic’s opening night gala features music director Alan Gilbert conducting the U.S. premiere of Jazz Symphony, Wynton Marsalis’ new work for the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and the Philharmonic.
It is now a longstanding tradition of Live From Lincoln Center to begin a new season with the Gala Opening Concert by the New York Philharmonic. Alan Gilbert begins his second season as the Philharmonic's Music Director with music from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. From the 19th, the Tone Poem Don Juan by Richard Strauss; from the 20th, a work with one of the longest titles in the repertory for orchestra: Paul Hindemith's Symphonic Metamorphoses on Themes of Carl Maria von Weber; and from the 21st, the American premier of Wynton Marsalis' Symphony Number 3, titled Swing Symphony, with a guest appearance by Mr. Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.
