My View: Grass And Music – A Great Combo

My View: Grass And Music – A Great Combo

The Great Lawn in Central Park was alive with the sounds of the New York Philharmonic last night and every blade of grass had a chair or blanket on it. The free concerts were started in 1965 by the Philharmonic when Leonard Bernstein was the musical director and Seiji Ozawa was the conductor. That first concert featured Benny Goodman on clarinet, and tonight’s concert under the baton of conductor Alan Gilbert also featured a clarinet. Anthony McGill was the clarinetist in Mozart’s Concerto in A major for Clarinet and Orchestra. The second part of the concert had soloist Frank Huang on violin and Ein Heldenleben Op. 40 by Richard Strauss. The orchestra performs the concert in Central Park tomorrow night and there’s always room for any New Yorker who wants to enjoy classical music on a summer evening.
