Susanna Mälkki, Musical America’s 2017 Conductor of the Year, leads the Philharmonic in “La Mer,” a richly layered seascape of glistening sounds — from iridescent light dancing on peaceful waters to the dramatic crashing of waves. Also on the program: Esa-Pekka Salonen’s “Helix” (an “exuberant showpiece” — The New York Times), and Baiba Skride (“effortless virtuosity and intensity” — Sunday Times) interprets Tchaikovsky’s ravishing Violin Concerto, one of the most beloved in the repertoire.
