Manfred Honeck Returns To The New York Philharmonic, 5/3 - 8

Manfred Honeck, Music Director of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, returns to the New York Philharmonic on May 3, 2018 for the first time since February 2017. He will conduct four concerts in a program that includes works by Tchaikovsky and Sibelius as well as Dvo?ák's Rusalka Fantasy, an orchestral suite arranged by Honeck. This month, Honeck continues to celebrate his 10th season as Music Director of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra with performances in Pittsburgh including Verdi's Requiem and Brahms' Symphony No. 4.

A frequent guest conductor with the New York Philharmonic, Honeck will lead the orchestra in Sibelius' Violin Concerto, with soloist Nikolaj Znaider, selections from Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty, and Dvo?ák's Rusalka Fantasy, an orchestral suite of music from Dvo?ák's opera arranged by Honeck himself and orchestrated by Tomas Ille. Honeck completed the Rusalka Fantasy in 2015 and first performed it with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra in the same year. This arrangement was also recorded and released in 2016 by Reference Recordings, on an album that also features Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6, Pathétique.

In addition to Honeck's appearances with the New York Philharmonic in May, he leads the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra in several programs in April and June at Pittsburgh's iconic Heinz Hall. From April 20 to 22, Honeck conducts Steven Stucky's Silent Spring, commissioned and premiered by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra in 2012, Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto with violinist James Ehnes, and Brahms' Symphony No. 4. Honeck and the orchestra will record the works by Stucky and Brahms for a later album release on Reference Recordings. The following week, Honeck will lead performances of Verdi's Requiem (April 27-29). On June 8 and 10, Honeck leads a program featuring Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4 with recent Gilmore Artist Award-winner Igor Levit, Lizst's Les Préludes, the Prelude of Act 1 to Wagner's Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, and the world premiere of a work by Pittsburgh-based composer Reza Vali, commissioned by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra in celebration of Honeck's special anniversary season. Yo-Yo Ma performs the Dvo?ák Cello Concerto with Honeck and the orchestra on June 9 for a special one-night only performance. And closing out the 10th anniversary season, Honeck will conduct the Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 5, "Emperor" with guest Emanuel Ax, and the orchestra's first-ever performance of Berlioz's Te Deum (June 15-17).

In the 2018/2019 season, Honeck will return to the New York Philharmonic in a Viennese-inspired program highlighting the music of Johann Strauss (ii) in November 2018 and Mozart's Requiem in March 2019. In May 2019, Honeck and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra will perform in New York at David Geffen Hall, part of Lincoln Center's Great Performers series, in a program featuring Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 5, "Emperor" with Till Fellner, and Mahler Symphony No. 5.
