About The Performance
Alice Sara Ott, in her NY Phil debut, performs Ravel’s lush, jazz-influenced G-major Piano Concerto. The program — led by Karina Canellakis, also in her NY Phil debut — begins with Webern’s remarkably spare, yet haunting Six Pieces. The concert’s two tone poems look past earthly life: Richard Strauss’s meditation on the death of an artist, and Scriabin’s mystical and rhapsodic Poem of Ecstasy.
