Guest conductor Andrey Boreyko leads the New York Philharmonic in a concert of rarely-heard masterpieces. Alexander Zemlinsky’s The Mermaid was composed in 1905, and was thought lost until 1984. Since its rediscovery, this lush symphonic poem has become one of Zemlinsky’s most-performed works, contributing to the revival of the Austrian composer’s reputation. The program also includes Mozart’s Bassoon Concerto, featuring soloist Judith LeClair, the Phiharmonic’s principal bassoon since 1981 and one of America’s most acclaimed bassoonists. Stravinsky’s The Song of the Nightingale, featuring music from his opera The Nightingale, opens the concert.
