The New York Philharmonic will open its 2006-07 season with a gala concert on September 13 conducted by music director Lorin Maazel, featuring Emanuel Ax and Yefim Bronfman performing Mozart's Concerto for Two Pianos in E-flat, K. 365, and Beethoven's "Eroica" Symphony (No. 3) and Egmont Overture.

The concert will be broadcast on PBS's Live From Lincoln Center on September 13.

The Philharmonic's upcoming season marks the first year of the guest-conducting arrangement with Riccardo Muti, Alan Gilbert and David Robertson announced in 2004. Muti will lead four weeks of programs, including Scriabin's rarely heard Le Pome divin; Robertson, who will conduct the U.S. premiere of Kaija Saariaho's Adriana Songs, and Gilbert will each appear for two weeks.

Esa-Pekka Salonen, who last conducted the Philharmonic in 1986, will lead the world premiere of his own Piano Concerto, with Yefim Bronfman as soloist. Maazel will conduct Melinda Wagner's Trombone Concerto, commissioned for the Philharmonic's Joseph Alessi.
