Latest: Jaap to rejoin the NY Philharmonicmain
After a whole year’s absence, music director Jaap Van Zweden will fly to New York next month to film a concert with the New York Philharmonic for its new paid streaming channel, launched today. At least that’s the plan, Covid permitting.
The orchestra is charging $4.99 a month of $50 a year for access to new and archived concerts.
Press release below.
The New York Philharmonic announces NYPhil+, the Orchestra’s new on-demand streaming service, available today at nyphil.org/plus. For $4.99 per month or $50.00 per year, subscribers to the platform can access newly recorded programs and historic performances. The collection will also be available on apps for Apple, Android, Amazon Fire, Roku, and other major streaming platforms later this spring.
The initial launch presents a new concert recording, featuring the New York Philharmonic conducted by David Robertson with pianist Emanuel Ax as soloist. Also currently available on NYPhil+ are past performances, including five decades of Live From Lincoln Center telecasts as well as more recent Facebook Live broadcasts, staged performances, and chamber music presentations. Highlights include Julia Wolfe’s Fire in my mouth; contemporary music concerts from the GRoW @ Annenberg Sound ON series; newly recorded chamber music performances captured in fall 2020 at Kaufman Music Center’s Merkin Hall and Neidorff-Karpati Hall at Manhattan School of Music; and audio broadcasts culled from the Orchestra’s award-winning radio series featuring Philharmonic Radio Host Alec Baldwin.
