Concerts for Unity with Alan Gilbert and The New York Philharmonic

Rob Bates / 31st May 2017 / Journal

To conclude his tenure with the New York Philharmonic, Alan Gilbert brings musicians from around the world to David Geffen Hall for his final subscription concerts as Music Director on June 8, 9, and 10.

The ensemble will perform Mahler’s Symphony No. 7, complemented by Kinan Azmeh’s Ibn Arabi Postlude and Edward Perez’s The Latina 6/8 Suite on June 8 with cellist Yo-Yo Ma and Alan Gilbert on violin, and a performance by Wynton Marsalis on June 9. The finale performance on June 10 will be broadcast live on the New York Philharmonic’s Facebook page.

In advance of the concerts, Alan participates in a symposium, “What Is Cultural Diplomacy” on June 7 with moderator Fareed Zakaria and panelists Yo-Yo Ma, Debora Spar, Karim Wasfi, and Irina Bokova. The event is free and open to the public and takes place at the Stanely H Kaplan Penthouse at Lincoln Center.
