The symposium will be moderated by journalist Fareed Zakaria and hosted by Music Director Alan Gilbert, and the panelists will include cellist Yo-Yo Ma, Lincoln Center president Debora Spar, Iraqi cellist Karim Wasfi, and UNESCO director-general Irina Bokova. The symposium precedes the final subscription concerts of Alan Gilbert’s tenure as Music Director, June 8–10, 2017 at David Geffen Hall, when he will lead the New York Philharmonic in Mahler’s Symphony No. 7 joined by musicians from orchestras around the world in concerts celebrating the power of music to build bridges and unite people across borders. To date, the musicians will include members of orchestras from Australia, Brazil, China, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Mexico, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden, Venezuela, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

    The program on Saturday, June 10 at 8:00 p.m. — Alan Gilbert’s final subscription concert as Music Director — will be broadcast for free on Facebook Live, the Philharmonic’s third live concert broadcast on Facebook (facebook.com/nyphilharmonic). The concert will be available for on-demand viewing on the Philharmonic’s website, YouTube, and Facebook through August 31, 2017.

    In addition to Mahler’s Symphony No. 7, the program on Thursday, June 8, 2017, at 7:30 p.m. will also include works commissioned by Silkroad: Ibn Arabi Postlude by Syrian composer Kinan Azmeh, and The Latina 6/8 Suite — traditional melodies from Sicily and Galicia arranged by Edward Perez, along with original music by Mr. Perez, conceived and commissioned by Cristina Pato. The performers will include Alan Gilbert on violin, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, Principal Clarinet Anthony McGill, Cristina Pato on Galician bagpipes and piano, violinist Johnny Gandelsman, Principal Viola Cynthia Phelps, Principal Cello Carter Brey, bassist Edward Perez (in his first appearance on a Philharmonic program), and percussionist Shane Shanahan. The program on Friday, June 9 at 8:00 p.m. will feature trumpet player Wynton Marsalis performing.

    The New York Philharmonic Archives will present two exhibits tied to the season finale. Celebrating Alan Gilbert (May 22–June 10, 2017, at the Bruno Walter Gallery on the Grand Promenade) will explore highlights of Music Director Alan Gilbert’s tenure, with a special focus on his new initiatives, humanitarian efforts, and international outreach. The Power of Music (June 8–10, 2017, on the Grand Promenade) will explore how orchestras have used music to share a message of support and unity — such as when former Music Director Walter Damrosch took his Orchestra to France to provide comfort at the end of World War I — and the Philharmonic’s more recent cultural diplomacy efforts, including the February 2008 historic performance in Pyongyang, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, the first visit there by an American orchestra, and the Orchestra’s debut in Vietnam in 2009, led by Alan Gilbert.

    The season finale program was conceived by Alan Gilbert in coordination with the New York Philharmonic, following conversations with the former Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, and will launch a new initiative to be led by Alan Gilbert following his tenure as Philharmonic Music Director in which musicians from around the world will come together to perform music at critical times in support of peace, development, and human rights. On December 14, 2016, Alan Gilbert conducted the New York Philharmonic in a concert on the floor of the General Assembly to celebrate the tenure of Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the transition of leadership to António Guterres, who took office on January 1, 2017.

    Yo-Yo Ma, a United Nations Messenger of Peace, serves as the artistic director of Silkroad, an organization he founded to promote cross-cultural performance and collaborations at the edge where education, business, and the arts come together to transform the world. Wynton Marsalis — managing and artistic director of Jazz at Lincoln Center and recipient of the Pulitzer Prize in music for his oratorio Blood on the Fields — is a former United Nations Messenger of Peace and cultural ambassador for the U.S. in the State Department’s CultureConnect program; he was also instrumental in the Higher Ground Hurricane Relief concert, which raised more than $3 million to benefit those affected by Hurricane Katrina in the Greater New Orleans area.

    Repertoire
    Syrian composer / clarinetist Kinan Azmeh (b. 1976) began playing the clarinet when he was six years old. He went on to study at the Arab Conservatory of Music in Damascus, the University of Damascus (where he pursued a double-major in music and electrical engineering), and The Julliard School. He is a member of Silkroad as well as numerous other ensembles. His Ibn Arabi Postlude (2005, performed June 8 only) is inspired by the writings of Ibn Arabi, an Arab Muslim mystic and Sufi philosopher who traveled from Andalusia to Damascus in the 13th century seeking knowledge, and whose philosophy was that love and free thinking are as sacred as any religious beliefs. Azmeh says that “the piece blurs the lines between the composed and the improvised and can be described as an obsessive ritualistic dance in the maqam, or melodic form, known as Kurd.”

    In 2014 Cristina Pato, a Galician bagpipes player and pianist, commissioned Texas-born bassist / composer Edward Perez (b. 1978), her longtime collaborator and a member of her ensemble, to create The Latina 6/8 Suite (performed June 8 only) as part of her Latina album project. Comprising a blend of traditional and original music, the suite allowed Ms. Pato to explore questions about identity that arose after she moved to New York — while she identified as Galician, New Yorkers perceived her as the more all-encompassing “Latina.” In a Silkroad interview, Mr. Perez, who arranged two of the four movements and created new music for the other two, explains that Ms. Pato’s “identity had become a chain — Galician to Spaniard to European to New-Yorker-Latina — and this piece of music gave her a chance to be more intimately involved with the 6/8 rhythms that had made a transatlantic trip similar to hers. The suite begins with melodies from Galicia and Sicily and quickly moves to musical sources from various Spanish-speaking countries of the American continent.” In commentary regarding the Latina album, Ms. Pato writes: “We all have common roots, heritage, language, and way of life … but exploring how a basic 6/8 pattern has evolved in different Latin countries brings up many other topics related to the context and meaning of the word Latina that have also evolved in fascinating ways: gender, power, and human migration.”

    When Gustav Mahler composed his Symphony No. 7 in Maiernigg, Austria, during the summers of 1904 and 1905, he was at the height of his career. He was secure in his tenure with the Vienna Opera, in demand as a guest conductor, and had captivated audiences throughout Europe with his early symphonies. However, his Seventh Symphony would not be premiered until 1908, and in the intervening years Mahler reportedly made many revisions to the score, at a time when he was suffering terrible heartache and hardship: he was forced to resign his position at the opera, his eldest daughter died from scarlet fever, and he himself was diagnosed with a heart condition. In spite of that, the Seventh Symphony — which eventually earned the nickname Song of the Night (without the composer’s blessing) — follows a musical path from darkness to light: the titles of two of the five movements include Night Music, and Mahler himself wrote William Ritter that it was “Three night pieces; the finale bright day. As foundation for the whole, the first movement.” Arnold Schoenberg heard the work at its 1909 Vienna Premiere, and wrote Mahler that he felt “perfect repose based on artistic harmony — something that moved me without just ruthlessly shifting my center of gravity; something drawing me calmly and pleasantly toward itself, like that force that guides the planets, letting them travel along their own courses, influencing them … in a manner so easy and inevitable that there are never any sudden jolts.” The New York Philharmonic first performed Mahler’s Symphony No. 7 in March 1923, led by Willem Mengelberg; its most recent performance was in June 2007, led by Lorin Maazel.
