Live from Lincoln Center rings in the New Year with a special broadcast of the New York Philharmonic’s opening gala concert featuring music director Alan Gilbert and special guest cello soloist Yo-Yo Ma.
The concert, taped on September 25 at Avery Fisher Hall, features dance-inspired orchestral works, including Azul by Osvaldo Golijov, a cello concerto written for Ma; the world premiere of an arrangement of Astor Piazzolla’s La serie del Ángel by Octavio Brunetti, commissioned by the New York Philharmonic; and two classics by Maurice Ravel, Alborada del gracioso and Boléro. Audra McDonald hosts the broadcast, which features interstitial interviews with Yo-Yo Ma and composer Osvaldo Golijov.
