New York Philharmonic Season-Opening Gala to Be Simulcast Live in Lincoln Center Plaza

Classic Arts News   New York Philharmonic Season-Opening Gala to Be Simulcast Live in Lincoln Center Plaza
 
The New York Philharmonic announced today that its season-opening gala concert next Wednesday (September 13) will be simulcast live for an outdoor audience at Lincoln Center beginning at 7:30 pm. Admission will be free and open to all, with seating available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The program, conducted by Philharmonic music director Lorin Maazel, features Beethoven's Egmont Overture and "Eroica" Symphony (No. 3) as well as Mozart's Concerto for Two Pianos in E-flat, K. 365, with soloists Emanuel Ax and Yefim Bronfman.

The concert will be broadcast that evening on PBS's Live From Lincoln Center with Beverly Sills as host; that same feed — including the intermission features — will be transmitted to Lincoln Center's Josie Robertson Plaza and shown on a large screen suspended from the center columns of Avery Fisher Hall.

Only once before has the New York Philharmonic simulcast a concert onto the main plaza at Lincoln Center: the memorial performance of Brahms's German Requiem given nine days after the destruction of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Next Wednesday, thank goodness, will be a happier occasion.
