The internationally renowned New York Philharmonic performs enduring classical works in the majestic Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. On February 25, guests will thrill to a matinee performance by renowned violinist Janine Jansen. Warm lobe-buds with Erkki-Sven Tüür’s Aditus, a rock-infused tribute to a late mentor, before moving on to Benjamin Britten’s Violin Concerto. The program concludes with the classical strains of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5. On March 3 and 4, auditory aficionados can watch conductor and Mahler specialist Daniel Harding lead the orchestra in this two-part evening of sumptuous musical artistry. First, Szymanowski's Violin Concerto No. 1 dramatically celebrates the ecstasy and despair of romance in a sweeping single-movement piece, highlighted by the expressive work of Juilliard-trained violinist Glenn Dicterow. Next, concert-goers will quiet their grumbling brains as ears sup on Mahler's Symphony No. 4, an ethereal piece written in the twilight of the composer's life. All service fees are included in the purchases.
- The conductor choose [sic] a very interesting array of pieces that all had very different sounds and tempos. Also, they showcased the orchestra's different sections and talents. – Brendan G., Yelp, 1/18/10
