New York Philharmonic: Beethoven, ‘Also sprach Zarathustra’ and Premieres at David Geffen Hall

David Geffen Hall

10 Lincoln Center Plaza, New York, NY 10023

The New York Philharmonic performs Strauss’s iconic Also sprach Zarathustra, immortalized in popular culture in the majestic fanfare that hails a primeval sunrise in Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. For lovers of the music of today, Esa-Pekka Salonen conducts a new work, starring our virtuosic horn section, by British composer Tansy Davies, who describes herself as “one who walks between worlds.” —NYPhilharmonic
