Nathalie Stutzmann Conductor
Gil Shaham Violin
Brahms Violin Concerto
Dvořák Symphony No. 9 (“From the New World”)
The Philadelphia Orchestra has made history many times over since its formation in 1900. It was the first orchestra to capture its music in an electrical recording, the first orchestra to perform on national television, and the first American orchestra to perform in China. It recorded the soundtrack to Disney’s groundbreaking animated film Fantasia, and it has presented American and world premieres by composers such as Mahler, Berg, Shostakovich, Jennifer Higdon, and Wynton Marsalis.
When the Orchestra returns to the Arsht Center, it will be in the company of another historymaker: Principal Guest Conductor Nathalie Stutzmann, who recently was named the new music director of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, making her only the second woman to lead a top American orchestra. In Miami, she’ll be joined onstage by Gil Shaham, the widely acclaimed American violinist whose previous appearances at the Arsht Center include performances with The Cleveland Orchestra and New World Symphony.
