Having commissioned and/or premiered works by leading composers from every era, the Orchestra also champions contemporary music through the NY Phil Biennial. Other recent initiatives include the New York Philharmonic Global Academy, collaborations with partners worldwide offering training of pre-professional orchestral musicians, often alongside performance residencies.
Renowned around the world, having appeared in 432 cities in 63 countries, America’s oldest symphony orchestra has been a media pioneer, releasing more than 2,000 recordings since 1917 and today sharing live performances through downloads and online. Alan Gilbert became Music Director in 2009, succeeding 20th-century musical giants including Bernstein, Toscanini, and Mahler.
