Lisa Batiashvili and Alan Gilbert Play Sibelius

The New York Philharmonic has just announced its 2012-2013 season, and among the featured soloists once again is violinist Lisa Batiashvili. She has performed often with the orchestra and has become one of music director Alan Gilbert's preferred soloists. Here she is rehearsing with Gilbert and the NY Phil at the beginning of a European tour last May. The music is the Sibelius Violin Concerto.

The NY Phil's next season will feature Emanuel Ax as soloist in residence and Christopher Rouse as composer in residence. Among the highlights will be a staged production of Stravinsky's ballet Petrushka, complete with puppets and multi media effects. There will also be a mini-Bach festival with Bernard Labadie among the guest conductors. For more details visit
