This concert is a Special Event and the Opening Gala of the 2018–19 season.
Join us for the New York Philharmonic’s 2018 Opening Gala Concert, welcoming Jaap van Zweden in his inaugural concert as Music Director. Daniil Trifonov solos in Ravel’s jazz-infused Piano Concerto in G. The Rite of Spring roars to life with visceral rhythms and the raw energy of ancient Russian rituals. And you’ll witness the World Premiere of an adventurous new work by “arresting” (The New Yorker) and “moving” (The New York Times) composer Ashley Fure, written for this momentous occasion.
Enhance your experience by attending the Opening Gala evening, including a pre-concert champagne reception and a post-concert seated dinner with the artists. To register, please contact [email protected].
