Beethoven 9th & Turnage Premiere

Join us at 7PM as Alan Gilbert leads the New York Philharmonic in Beethoven's 9th Symphony, preceded by a musical meditation on the 9th, "Frieze" by Mark-Anthony Turnage  in its American premiere. Says Turnage, "I've been obsessed with Beethoven from the age of eight. What a joy, therefore, to be asked... to write a piece inspired by Beethoven's great symphony. Beethoven is a towering figure, but I find him more inspiring than intimidating."
