The Berlin Philhamonic led by Simon Rattle gives the U.S. premiere of Magnus Lindberg's Seht die Sonne (See the Sun) tomorrow at Carnegie Hall.

Premiered over the summer in Berlin, the three-movement work is named for the finale of Schoenberg's huge oratorio, Gurrelieder. It is scored for nearly the same orchestra as Mahler's Ninth Symphony, which the Berlin Phihaharmonic also has programmed for tomorrow evening.

The 49-year-old Finnish composer's most recent works are Konzertst‹ck for cello and piano, and the Violin Concerto, both premiered last year, by cellist Anssi Karttunen and violinist Elisabeth Batiashvili with the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra under Louis Langr_e, respectively.
