Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic perform Rouse and Lindberg
EUROPE / SPRING 2013 TOUR: live from the Dresden Music Festival at Volkswagen's "Die Gläserne Manufaktur"
The spectacular live recording of the New York Philharmonic's concert in Dresden in 2013.
Following medici.tv's webcasts of two concerts with the New York Philharmonic (the Philharmonic 360 concert and the celebration of the Chinese New Year), here is the third result of their collaboration. Watch the orchestra perform live from the Dresden Music Festival in Germany!
Performed as a part of the New York Philharmonic's EUROPE/SPRING 2013 tour, this concert takes place in an unusual setting and in exceptional surroundings: the transparent production site of Volkswagen in Dresden.
Leading the Philharmonic is music director Alan Gilbert, conducting modern to contemporary works, starting with Christopher Rouse's Prospero's Rooms, the first work he composed in his role as the orchestra's current Marie-Josée Kravis Composer-in-Residence. The webcast concludes with a rendition of Kraft, a major score by the Finnish composer Magnus Lindberg, who served as The Marie-Josée Kravis Composer-in-Residence for three seasons.
The Kraft scores are courtesy of the Whilelm Hansen editions.
