Bychkov Conducts “An Alpine Symphony”
New York Philharmonic
About An Alpine Symphony
Strauss’s “An Alpine Symphony” is an orchestral extravaganza requiring an enormous cast of 125 musicians, many playing on wind and thunder machines, cow bells, and bird calls, plus 16 off-stage brass players! Join the composer on his daylong hike, listening for a brilliant sunrise, the arduous ascent, an Alpine pasture, and a ferocious storm. Plus Berio’s Sinfonia with Grammy-winning vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth.
2hr; incl. intermission

In 1962, Philharmonic Hall—renamed Avery Fisher Hall in 1973 and later renamed David Geffen Hall in 2015—became one of the first buildings to be completed on the Lincoln Center site and home to one of its first resident organizations, the world-renowned New York Philharmonic, the oldest symphony orchestra in the U.S. Today, David Geffen Hall hosts notable performances by acclaimed orchestras and artists from around the globe, as well as galas, film premieres, graduations, and conferences.Located on the north side of Josie Robertson Plaza facing Lincoln Center’s iconic Revson Fountain, David Geffen Hall’s spacious lobby and promenade feature such eminent artwork as Rodin’s bust of Gustav Mahler and Dimitri Hadzi’s sculpture The Hunt, in addition to wraparound views of the Lincoln Center campus.
