New York Philharmonic Archives
Lincoln Center, David Rubenstein Atrium New York, New York, United States

On the centennial of Philharmonic Laureate Conductor Leonard Bernstein, the Philharmonic explores his affinity for the music of former Philharmonic Music Director Gustav Mahler through a 13-hour expedition through Bernstein’s recordings of Mahler’s complete symphonies. Bernstein’s marked scores from the New York Philharmonic Leon Levy Digital Archives will be projected in real time. Between each symphony, special guests will read excerpts from Bernstein’s own writings on Mahler, and video clips of Bernstein talking about Mahler will be projected. The recordings were released on the Sony / Columbia label and recorded between 1960 and 1967 with the New York Philharmonic (Symphonies Nos. 1–7 and 9) and the London Symphony Orchestra (Symphony No. 8). The participants who will be guiding the listening will be announced.
