It’s hard to believe it’s been 3 weeks since I’ve been to New York and the Philharmonic. This week’s concert was a eclectic mix of Beethoven, Shostakovich and Gershwin. Russian violinist Lisa Batiashvili was featured in the Shostakovich.
- Beethoven – Fidelio Overture, Op. 72
- Shostakovich – Violin Concerto No. 1 in A minor, Op. 99
- Beethoven – Symphony No. 1 in C major, OP. 21
- Gershwin – American in Paris
Alan Gilbert was back as conductor. The New York Times review is located here.
