Part of FREE Insights at the Atrium David Rubinstein Atrium at Lincoln Center February 25, 2018 10:00 AM–11:00 PM
The New York Philharmonic will present “Bernstein’s Mahler Marathon: The Sony Recordings,” a 13-hour expedition through Bernstein’s recordings of Mahler’s complete symphonies. Hosted by Fred Child, the free event, part of the Philharmonic’s Insights at the Atrium series, takes place Sunday, February 25, 2018, 10:00 a.m.–11:00 p.m., at the David Rubenstein Atrium. Both Bernstein and Mahler served as Music Director of the New York Philharmonic, and Bernstein is credited with popularizing the music of his predecessor through performances and recordings. Bernstein’s marked scores from the New York Philharmonic Leon Levy Digital Archives will be projected in real time during the marathon. Music students and fans have volunteered to “page turn” the digital score live for each of the 39 movements. Between each symphony, special guests will read selections from Bernstein’s own writings on Mahler, and video clips of Bernstein talking about Mahler will be projected.
