World Premiere–New York Philharmonic Commission of Bent Sørensen’s Evening Land and Brahms’s Symphony No. 2
Change: Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20 with Emanuel Ax
Edo de Waart will replace Christoph von Dohnányi in concerts featuring the World Premiere–New York Philharmonic commission of Bent Sørensen’s Evening Land; Emanuel Ax as soloist in Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20 (replacing the previously announced Mozart Piano Concerto No. 27); and Brahms’s Symphony No. 2. On the advice of his doctors, Christoph von Dohnányi is regrettably withdrawing from these concerts as he continues strengthening and physical therapy following a fall he suffered earlier this year. The program takes place Thursday, November 30, 2017, at 7:30 p.m.; Friday, December 1 at 8:00 p.m.; and Saturday, December 2 at 8:00 p.m.
