Alan Gilbert’s Third Season as Music Director of NY Phil Begins with Televised Barber/Wagner/Strauss Concert with Deborah Voigt TONIGHT

Alan Gilbert begins his third season as Music Director of the New York Philharmonic on September 21, 2011, when soprano Deborah Voigt joins him for a program of Wagner, R. Strauss and Barber that will be broadcast on Live From Lincoln Center on PBS and on Classical 105.9 FM WQXR. The concert launches an adventurous new season for Gilbert that features world and New York premieres, three Mahler symphonies, a residency at London’s Barbican Centre, tours to Europe and California, and a season-ending musical exploration of space at the Park Avenue Armory that features Stockhausen’s theatrical immersion, Gruppen. Additional highlights for Gilbert’s 2011-12 season include fall concerts with the Munich Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, Cleveland Orchestra, Hamburg’s NDR Symphony Orchestra (where he is Principal Guest Conductor), and Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, as well as spring performances of Wagner’s Lohengrin with the Royal Swedish Opera and a performance of Mahler’s Symphony No. 6 with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra (of which he is Conductor Laureate). In September 2011 Alan Gilbert becomes Director of Conducting and Orchestral Studies at The Juilliard School, where he is also the first to hold the William Schuman Chair in Musical Studies.
