Now in his fourth season as Chief Conductor of Hamburg’s NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra, Gilbert has already begun to “put Hamburg on the map as a musical center and lead the orchestra into the first rank” (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung).
Many of his NDR programs stream live on the orchestra’s app, website and YouTube channel, where their recent performance of Mahler’s Seventh Symphony was enjoyed live by more than 20 thousand fans around the world. Click here to replay their celebrated performance of Mahler’s Seventh.
Gilbert and the NDR conclude their fall lineup with a festive New Year’s Eve program featuring recent Musical America “Artist of the Year” Julia Bullock, who makes her NDR debut in songs by Gershwin and Margaret Bonds.
Also including Gilbert’s leadership of Lili Boulanger’s D’un matin, Ravel’s La valse and Der Rosenkavalier Suite by Richard Strauss, the concert is scheduled not only to stream live on YouTube and the NDR website, but also to air live nationwide in Germany on ARD TV on December 30 & 31 and January 1.
