Gustavo at the New York Philharmonic
In March 2022, Gustavo will join the New York Philharmonic for a two-week residency celebrating the symphonies of Robert Schumann. The first of this two-week focus features the composer’s First and Second Symphonies, and also presents the world premiere of Gabriela Ortiz’s Clara, a piece that the composer dedicated to Gustavo and his wife, María Valverde.
The second week features Gustavo conducting Schumann’s Third and Fourth Symphonies, and the world premiere of composer Andreia Pinto Correia’s The Birds of Night. Both of the world premiere works explore the connection between Robert and Clara Schumann, the acclaimed composer-pedagogue and the groundbreaking pianist-composer who was his wife and muse.
