Cooking with Andrey Boreyko
Figurative cooking that is…
In this new video, conductor Andrey Boreyko takes you into his “conductor’s kitchen” to share the secret ingredients that can be found in other conductor’s marked scores — like those in Leonard Bernstein’s copy of a score of Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9, From the New World, which he examined during a visit to the New York Philharmonic Archives.
Mr. Boreyko cooked up a mean program for this week, which echoes the debut program of New World Symphony, featuring Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No. 1 with Frank Peter Zimmermann and Mendelssohn’s Overture to Die Heimkehr aus der Fremde.

Welcome Back, Frank Peter Zimmermann
Tonight, violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann performs Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No. 1 with the New York Philharmonic on a program which also features Mendelssohn’s Die Heimkehr aus der Fremde and Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9, From the New World, led by Andrey Boreyko. You can also catch this program Friday–Saturday, November 23–24, and the following Tuesday, the 27th.
Can’t contain your excitement until tonight? Get your fix now by watching this clip of Mr. Zimmermann rehearsing Beethoven with the Orchestra last season during the EUROPE / WINTER Tour 2012.

Countless studies have documented the effects of music on the human brain (there is a reason they pump classical music into Penn Station). However, we don’t believe scientists have documented anything like the effect the New York Philharmonic had on these concertgoers in Central Park Friday evening, caught on tape by a friend of The New York Observer.
The Concerts in the Parks party continues tonight in Van Cortlandt Park as Andrey Boreyko leads the New York Philharmonic in Wagner, Tchaikovsky, and Brahms.

“ The whole piece — it has little tricks. It’s like some of those old blues guys used to do … they’d play a bass line and you’d think it’s on one beat and it’s on a completely different beat … and it works. It’s very cool that way. ”
— Saxophonist Branford Marsalis on Schulhoff’s Hot-Sonate for Alto Saxophone and Orchestra, which he will perform with the New York Philharmonic and conductor Andrey Boreyko on February 16 – 19, at Avery Fisher Hall.
