Abstract:

The New York Philharmonic, from Bernstein to Maazel continues the story of America's oldest orchestra as told in Howard Shames Philharmonic: A History of New York's Orchestra. That volume ended with the 1970-71 season, just before the arrival of Pierre Boulez as music director. Obviously, much has happened since, and The New York Philharmonic, from Bernstein to Maazel continues the story.

The book opens with a retrospective account of the controversial last years of the tenure of Dimitri Mitropoulos and the ascendancy of Leonard Bernstein to the music directorship, and it ends with the final days of Maazel's tenure. Having been a Philharmonic assistant conductor during Bernstein's tenure, and an inveterate Philharmonic watcher ever since, author John Canarina brings personal insights to the story as well as moments of humor.

Chronicled are the opening of Lincoln Center, the Parks Concerts, Promenades, Prospective Encounters, Rug Concerts, tours, and, of course, the subscription seasons, as well as the Philharmonic's 1973 tour of Spain, Portugal, and the Canary Islands, undertaken solely on the initiative of its musicians, without benefit or support from management. Canarina shows how the New York Philharmonic weathered extraordinary ups and downs during this period while remaining a vital component of New York's cultural life. --Book Jacket.
