This week, Edward Gardner makes his New York Philharmonic debut, with three performances of Sibelius’ Pohjola’s Daughter, Debussy’s Fantasie for Piano and Orchestra — performed by frequent collaborator Leif Ove Andsnes — and Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra.
This follows Edward’s debut with the San Francisco Symphony in March, which the SFGate called an “impressive conducting debut”, noting that Edward is a “master of textures, phrasing, and rhythmic detail”. Watch a clip from the performance below:
Future American dates include his subscription debut with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and returns to the Metropolitan Opera, National Symphony Orchestra, Washington, and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.
Edward conducts the New York Philharmonic on 26, 27 and 28 April. Find out more on the Philharmonic’s website.
