Yannick Nézet-Séguin - Conductor
James McVinnie - Organ
Muhly - Register, Concerto for Organ and Orchestra
Tchaikovsky - Manfred Symphony
Soloist James McVinnie cut his teeth in the great British cathedrals (he played for William and Kate's wedding at Westminster Abbey) and consistently wows the critics (“musically and technically immaculate”—Los Angeles Times). He joins the Orchestra in the East Coast premiere of Nico Muhly's Organ Concerto, a co-commission with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. In McVinnie's hands, hear the Fred J. Cooper Memorial Organ in all its glory. Also on the program, Tchaikovsky's Manfred Symphony, written between his Fourth and Fifth symphonies and based on a poem by Lord Byron.
