The New York Philharmonic is one of the Big Five American orchestras, and one of the oldest in the America. Since organizing in 1842, the orchestra has performed over 14,500 concerts. In this recent video from the NY Phil, see the new music being introduced over the upcoming 2017-2018 season.
In the 2017–18 season the Philharmonic will perform two World Premieres commissioned by the New York Philharmonic by Philharmonic Kravis Emerging Composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir and Bent Sørensen. Esa-Pekka Salonen will begin his third and final season as The Marie-Josée Kravis Composer-in-Residence. And the NY PHIL BIENNIAL, a wide-ranging exploration of today’s music, and "CONTACT!," the new-music series, return.
