star ratingstar ratingstar ratingstar rating

On May 5, 2010, the New York Philharmonic performed its 15,000th concert. No other orchestra comes close to matching that number.

The New York Times

Conducted by Emmanuelle Haim, the acclaimed New York Philharmonic Orchestra performs George Frideric Handel's signature piece, Messiah. The piece was first performed in 1742 in Dublin, and has since become a firm favorite among classical music lovers. The piece is an oratorio, which is a musicla work similar to an opera but performed utilizing the vocals of both soloists as well as a choir, and often without the same narrative structure as an opera. Handel's Messiah is based on Biblical scripture

The 2012 season of New York Philharmonic's annual performance of Messiah is conducted by Emmanuelle Haim, a French musician and conductor. Ms. Haim studied music in Paris for over ten years. Her musical instrument of choice is the harpsichord, which she focused on during her studies, though she has a personal interest in early and Baroque music.
