Congratulations to Christopher Rouse, who will be the New York Philharmonic’s Composer in Residence in 2012-’13. The orchestra will be reviving his Phantasmata as well as Seeing (with piano soloist Emmanuel Ax). Rouse has also been commissioned to write a new work for Spring 2013. Here is the composer discussing this collaboration with Alan Gilbert, the NY Phil’s Music Director.
Here’s a clip of Gilbert conducting Rouse’s Rapture (2000).
