The Philharmonic performs Bartók’s thrilling Concerto for Orchestra — a tour de force in which every section of the orchestra shines in the spotlight, ending in a fugal whirlwind for all forces. Artist-in-Residence Leif Ove Andsnes solos in Debussy’s rhapsodic “Fantaisie,” a work of “tremendous beauty,” according to the “pianist of magisterial elegance, power and insight” (The New York Times).
