The New York Philharmonic welcomes guest soloist Gil Shaham to the stage to perform one of the most challenging and well-known works in classical repertory, Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto. Mr. Shaham is one of the foremost violinists of our time: his flawless technique combined with his inimitable warmth and generosity of spirit has solidified his renown as an American master.
The orchestra will also perform the overture to Mozart's Marriage of Figaro, a lively piece that has been one of the most played orchestral works since its premiere in 1786. Closing out the program is Price's Symphony No. 4. Composed in 1945, the work was never performed during Price's life and was presumed lost until 2009. It has since been praised by modern music critics.
