After 9 years, the NY Phil finds an English hornmain
The New York Philharmonic has just appointed Ryan Roberts as English Horn player, succeeding Thomas Stacy, who retired in 2010…. That’s a helluva long time without a Dvorak 9.
Roberts, a former fellow of the New World Symphony, has performed with Philadelphia, Chicago, San Francisco Symphony and the Met.
Other new faces at the NY Phil are Associate Principal Flute Alison Fierst and violinists Dasol Jeong, Kyung Ji Min and Andi Zhang.
