The New York Philharmonic presents its next set of performances in the Contact! series next Thursday and Friday (4/16 and 4/17).

Here’s a flip-cam video of featured composer Matthias Pintscher discussing rehearsing for the show with baritone Thomas Hampson. Even if the texts are in Hebrew, it still takes chutzpah to instruct Mr. Hampson on nuances of diction!

  1. Looks like it should be a good one. I’m so happy for the NY Phil and it’s new forward-minded conductor and hope his vigor for exploring new works rubs off for the sake of the rest of us.
