New World Symphony

Carnegie Hall - Zankel Hall

Thu, May 2 @ 7:30 PM
Perspectives artist Michael Tilson Thomas’s brilliance as conductor and composer are showcased. His Four Preludes on Playthings of the Wind takes its text from a Carl Sandburg poem and was composed for soprano Measha Brueggergosman. This unique song cycle—scored for three singers, chamber orchestra, and cabaret band—is a fascinating fusion of art song and bebop. Tilson Thomas’s mastery of Mahler is featured in a performance of the composer’s string orchestra arrangement of Schubert’s powerful string quartet. Fellow Perspectives artist Yuja Wang is also on hand for the New York premiere of a Tilson Thomas work for solo piano.
