It’s a gala opening night for the ages when The Philadelphia Orchestra and its superstar music director, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, launch Carnegie Hall’s 2017-18 season with a concert of American classics. Few works are as quintessentially New York as Gershwin’s bluesy Rhapsody in Blue and when the soloist is Lang Lang, the sparks fly. The energy, romance, and grit of New York is also portrayed in Bernstein’s music for the film On the Waterfront and his Symphonic Dances from West Side Story.
