Listen: Inextinguishable Nielsen

"To many Europeans in 1916, life may have seemed merely a difficult prelude to mass death. Yet in that despairing year, the Danish composer Carl Nielsen wrote his Fourth Symphony, The Inextinguishable, a work full of burgeoning, yearning, optimism, and ferment. You can practically hear the buds push through the blood-soaked battlefield. Alan Gilbert conducts that piece, plus the Symphony No. 1 and the Helios Overture, as part of his ongoing championship of a composer he has affectionately described as “traditional” but a “little bit odd.” —New York Magazine

Student Rush available Wed. through Fri.

Happy Thanksgiving with Mozart

"There’s nothing harder than Mozart. And what’s hard about it is, it’s so simple." Hear Alan Gilbert reflect on this week’s programs, all of which feature Mozart’s final symphonies.

Throwback Thursday: Lenny’s Debut
Seventy years ago today, Leonard Bernstein made his Philharmonic debut, substituting for a sick Bruno Walter. The centerpiece was Strauss’s “Don Quixote” — Alan Gilbert conducts Strauss’s “Zarathustra” and “Don Juan” starting tonight. Hear the marvelous story of that night, courtesy of WNYC’s Fishko Files.
Click the program image to see and listen to Lenny’s debut program from 70 years ago, thanks to the New York Philharmonic Digital Archives. (The button to listen is across the top of the window: “Play audio.”) Check out his Schumann “Manfred” score, too.

Maestro Ben

We received this message this morning:

Hello from Florida,
We just wanted to share Maestro Gilbert’s biggest littlest fan.  Our 3 year old son dressed as Maestro Gilbert for Halloween tonight.  We watched (and fortunately DVRed) the Sesame Street episode that featured Maestro Gilbert with Murray Monster.  Our son, Ben, fell in love … we have watched the episode at least 50 times and eventually moved to Maestro Gilbert videos on YouTube.  We bought Ben his very own conductor’s baton over the summer, and he now conducts along with Maestro Gilbert.  Here are some photos of Ben tonight … our neighbors thought his costume was very original.  We thought the NY Philharmonic would enjoy it too.

CONTACT! Returns, Downtown
CONTACT!, the new-music series, is back this Monday, Nov. 4 at 7:30 p.m. SubCulture, a new underground club in NoHo, is the venue for An Evening with Esa-Pekka Salonen, an all-Salonen chamber program hosted by the composer-conductor and co-presented with 92nd Street Y.
“CONTACT! is essentially about making contact with a fresh, excited, exciting audience, with new music that is absolutely important to play,” Alan Gilbert said. “We have always felt it important for the series to reach across New York City, with performances in more intimate spaces not necessarily associated with the formality of a New York Philharmonic concert.”
