Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra Music Director Manfred Honeck returns to Avery Fisher Hall to lead the New York Philharmonic in a program featuring violinist Augustin Hadelich on May 28-30. This will be Honeck’s fourth appearance with the New York Philharmonic.
Honeck will conduct the orchestra in a program including the Die Fledermaus Overture by J. Strauss II, Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5, Turkish, and Brahms Symphony No. 4. Honeck returns to New York following debuts with the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Boston Symphony Orchestra. In December, at the request of Pope Francis, Honeck performed at the Vatican during the Christmas Eve Mass. The latest CD release from Honeck and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Bruckner No. 4, was released in February on the Fresh! Label from Reference Recordings. The previous release, Dvořák 8, was nominated for a Grammy Award. Honeck’s next guest appearances following New York include the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich and Verbier Festival Orchestra in July and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and the Schleswigt-Holstein Musik Festival in August.
