New York Philharmonic Performs Mahler's Third Symphony
The New York Philharmonic performed Gustav Mahler's Third Symphony for their first subscriptions series of the 2009 - 2010 season. Trombonist's everywhere rejoiced as Alan Gilbert chose this monumental work to start his tenure as the Phil's new Music Director.
If you have not had a chance yet, I strongly encourage you to visit the New York Philharmonic website. A free audio stream of this concert is available until Friday, October 16, 2009.
Most trombonists need no introduction to this work. This is wonderful opportunity to listen to New York Philharmonic Principal Trombonist, Joseph Alessi, masterfully perform the solo passages in the first movement.
Enjoy the performance!
