Itzhak Perlman’s New York Philharmonic’s “Play On” Broadcast will take place next Thursday, May 28, 7:30pm EDT on the NY Phil’s Facebook page (and on-demand afterwards on nyphil.org/playson)!
The New York Philharmonic will rebroadcast the 1982 Great Performances episode featuring violinist Itzhak Perlman performing the Mendelssohn and Brahms Violin Concertos, conducted by David Zinman; Mr. Perlman also plays and leads the Orchestra in Winter from Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons. The broadcast will be preceded by a recently recorded interview between Itzhak Perlman and his fellow Board Member, Alec Baldwin.
In addition to these broadcasts, the New York Philharmonic aims to provide comfort and connection to millions of classical music fans worldwide through NY Phil Plays On, a new portal for free digital content. Available at nyphil.org/playson, the portal currently includes full concert broadcasts; musicians performing and collaborating from afar in the We Are NY Phil @ Home series; episodes of the award-winning radio program The New York Philharmonic This Week, hosted by Alec Baldwin; video of Young People’s Concerts; and highlights from the New York Philharmonic Leon Levy Digital Archives.
