New York Philharmonic – Andrey Boreyko and Gautier Capucon

Gautier-CapuconAndrey Boreyko was back for a second straight week at the Philharmonic, this time with an all-Russian program featuring the Shostakovitch Cello Concerto No.1 with Gautier Capucon.

The pre-concert talk was notable for how the presenter, Fred Plotkin, synthesized the works and highlighted common threads (other than all being Russian). I also enjoyed my seat in Row D of the orchestra. While I wouldn’t want to always sit so close as the sound is not balanced,  it was enjoyable to closely watch the musicians and conductor. Another satisfying evening at the NY Philharmonic!
