The New York Philharmonic’s 2018 Opening Gala Concert welcomes Jaap van Zweden in his inaugural concert as Music Director. Daniil Trifonov solos in Ravel’s jazz-infused Piano Concerto in G. The Rite of Spring roars to life with visceral rhythms and the raw energy of ancient Russian rituals. And you’ll witness the World Premiere of an adventurous new work by “arresting” (The New Yorker) and “moving” (The New York Times) composer Ashley Fure, written for this momentous occasion.
