  • This season, Jaap van Zweden and the New York Philharmonic

  • celebrate Gustav Mahler, one of the most beloved and revered

  • composers in classical music both at home and abroad.

  • The Philharmonic will invite its fellow New Yorkers

  • to get acquainted with the former Philharmonic music

  • director through Mahler's New York.

  • Two weeks that will present his first two

  • symphonies and the one night only Mahler Grooves concert

  • featuring Roderick Williams singing "Songs of a Wayfarer."

  • I think it's important to celebrate Mahler,

  • because he is a composer for me that

  • writes most about the complete human experience.

  • On one hand, very cerebral, and very intense,

  • and at the other hand incredibly flippant.

  • I think performing Mahler with the New York Philharmonic gives

  • not only me, but every conductor an incredible responsibility.

  • A lot of conductors came and did Mueller,

  • and still I think that there is a lot of DNA.

  • There's a great thrill for me to be connected to this composer

  • through this orchestra.

  • Other activities include a special archival exhibit

  • and a curated walking tour of Mahler's New York.

  • After celebrating the great composer-conductor at home

  • Jaap van Zweden and the Philharmonic

  • will embark on their European tour,

  • opening the Concertgebouw's Mahler Festival

  • as the first American orchestra in the festival's history.

  • What is so special about the tour,

  • I think, in this case is that, of course,

  • it is a unbelievable I will say, moment for us.

  • Mahler's New York offers insights

  • into the life and work of one of the Philharmonic's greatest

  • music directors.

  • It's a glance back through time at his city and his music

  • through the lens of today with some

  • of the most powerful works in the canon

  • performed by Mahler's orchestra.

This season, Jaap van Zweden and the New York Philharmonic
