Scene on the Plaza
The Josie Robertson Plaza at Lincoln Center on an early Friday morning, with the denizens of Fashion Week assembling. It will be a very different scene in 19 days, the morning of our Free Dress Rehearsal, when our fans will be gathering for a peek — gratis — at the inner workings of the preparations for our Opening Gala Concert that night, when Alan Gilbert and the Phil will be joined by a different sort of star: Yo-Yo Ma. Come by that morning, September 25, to catch a glimpse of the fashions that will then be filling the plaza as people wait for the doors to open at 9:45.

"It creates this absolutely surreal feeling, like in a dream."

Dream a little dream this Wednesday night as pianist Leif Ove Andsnes helps Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic open the 171st season, performing György Kurtág’s … quasi una fantasia …. In this video, the Norwegian pianist takes you through the piece’s sequence of spatial movements.

Here this and more for FREE Wednesday morning at 9:45 a.m. at the annual open dress rehearsal, presented by Credit Suisse.
