Alan Gilbert and NY Philharmonic Present A Concert for New York: a Free Performance of Mahler's Symphony No. 2, "Resurrection," Saturday, September 10 to Commemorate Tenth Anniversary of 9/11

On Saturday, September 10 at 7:30 PM, Alan Gilbert will conduct the New York Philharmonic in A Concert for New York: a free performance at Avery Fisher Hall of Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 2, "Resurrection," given in a spirit of remembrance and renewal to commemorate the tenth anniversary of 9/11. The concert (featuring soprano Dorothea Röschmann, mezzo-soprano Michelle DeYoung, and the New York Choral Artists) will be broadcast live on Classical WQXR 105.9 FM, and rebroadcast on Sunday, September 11 at 8:00 PM on WYNC 93.9 FM. It will also be telecast in the U.S. on PBS's Great Performances at 9:00 PM on September 11 (check local listings) and internationally as well: in Germany and France on ARTE at 6:15 PM CET; and on major television channels in Brazil, Asia, and other European countries such as Austria, the Czech Republic, Latvia, and Switzerland. The concert will also be webcast on nyphil.org at 9:00 PM, EDT, on September 11.

Tickets for this special performance are first-come, first-serve, and will be distributed (one pair per person) beginning at 4:00 pm on the Josie Robertson Plaza at Lincoln Center on Saturday, September 10, the day of the concert. There will be additional seating on the Plaza for the live projection of the concert. The Philharmonic is offering priority ticket access to the families of 9/11 victims, first responders and survivors; members of this community may request a pair of tickets in advance by e-mailing concertfornewyork@nyphil.org by September 1, 2011. Additional information is available at the New York Philharmonic website.

A Concert for New York will be released on DVD and Blu-ray in October 2011 by ACCENTUS Music. The recording will be distributed in the U.S. by Naxos of America. A Concert for New York is being produced by the New York Philharmonic and ACCENTUS Music in co-production with ZDF/ARTE and Thirteen/WNET.

Alan Gilbert, who begins his third season as Music Director of the New York Philharmonic on September 21, had this to say:
"Mahler's Resurrection Symphony powerfully and profoundly explores the range of emotions provoked by the memories of 9/11. This great masterpiece has a very special place in the history and psyche of the New York Philharmonic, but its message of renewal and rebirth is universal. We offer it as a tribute to those lost ten years ago."
Mahler's Symphony No. 2 will also open the Philharmonic's 2011-12 season, when Gilbert leads the orchestra in three subscription concerts on September 22, 24, and 27 with soloists Miah Persson, soprano; Lilli Paasikivi, mezzo-soprano; and the New York Choral Artists.
