New York Philharmonic music director Lorin Maazel will lead the orchestra in the U.S. premiere of Hans Werner Henze's Sebastian im Traum on September 14-16 and 19.

The Henze work is a co-commission with the New York Philharmonic, the Dutch foundation Edward van Beinum Stichting, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam and the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra.

The concerts, which also include Itzhak Perlman performing Bruch's Violin Concerto No. 1, Ravel's Rapsodie espagnole and Stravinsky's Firebird Suite, will be broadcast the week of October 9.

Henze, an 80-year-old German composer, composed the 15-minute orchestral work in 2004; it was given its world premiere by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in December 2005. His opera L'Upupa ("The Hoopoe, and the Triumph of Filial Love") was premiered at the Salzburg Festival in 2003; he has also composed many other operas, chamber music and symphonic works.
