NY Philharmonic To Present The Jazz Effect as Part of 'Gilbert's Playlist,' May 31–June 1

Jazz and its influences on orchestral music form the basis of the first program in Gilbert's Playlist - four weeks of programs conducted by Alan Gilbert showcasing themes and ideas that have become a hallmark of the Music Director's tenure - Friday, May 31, 2013, at 11:00 a.m. and Saturday, June 1 at 8:00 p.m.

Alan Gilbert leads the Philharmonic in Copland's Clarinet Concerto, with Acting Principal Clarinet Mark Nuccio as soloist, and Wynton Marsalis's Swing Symphony (Symphony No. 3), featuring the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis - the forces that gave the work's U.S. Premiere on Opening Night in September 2010.

Stravinsky's Ragtime and Shostakovich's Tahiti Trot, conducted by Assistant Conductor Case Scaglione, open the program. "One thing I've been interested in pursuing with the Philharmonic is collaboration with important cultural institutions across New York City," Alan Gilbert said. "Jazz at Lincoln Center with Wynton Marsalis were an obvious choice. Wynton is such an iconic figure: a great artist, instrumentalist, teacher, and communicator who really believes in the power of music and the importance of bringing people into our world."
