The New York Philharmonic has announced its 2021–22 season, marking the Orchestra’s long-awaited return to subscription performances following an 18-month period of cancellations due to the pandemic.
For the first time in modern history, the New York Philharmonic will be performing outside its home for an entire season. While David Geffen Hall continues to undergo major renovations in anticipation of its scheduled fall 2022 reopening, the Orchestra and Music Director Jaap van Zweden will perform this season at two Lincoln Center venues: Alice Tully Hall and the Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall. In addition to these performances, the Philharmonic will be presented by Carnegie Hallin four orchestral concerts.
The upcoming season will include 50 concerts at Alice Tully Hall and 28 concerts at the Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall. In addition, four concerts will take place at Carnegie Hall, three of which will be led by Music Director Jaap van Zweden.
And for the first time since the 1964–65 season, Philharmonic presentations will include a series of Sunday matinees which will take place at 2pm.
Over the 2021–22 season, the New York Philharmonic will introduce New York audiences to ten works by composers from a variety of backgrounds: six World Premieres, two US Premieres, and two New York Premieres. In addition, Sound ON and Kravis Nightcap — the Orchestra’s two new-music series, presented in intimate venues, that delve deeper into the season’s themes — will return.
The 2021–22 Philharmonic season, which begins on September 17, marks Jaap van Zweden’s fourth as Music Director. Throughout the subscription season he will conduct a wide range of repertoire, including four World Premieres, a US Premiere, and two New York Premieres alongside symphonic cornerstones. He will also lead the Orchestra in multiple concerts at Carnegie Hall.
“This is a very special time for the New York Philharmonic,” van Zweden stated. “First and foremost, as we return to live orchestral concerts, the Orchestra and I cannot wait to greet our audiences with programs that are full of wonderful surprises, embracing the traditional and welcoming the new. As you can see, this is a season of flexibility and varied venues. Come the fall of 2022, we all look forward to reuniting in our completely renovated home at David Geffen Hall.”
