The New York Philharmonic’s nomadic 2021–22 season concluded with the return to the Bravo! Vail Music Festival, which included the announcement of the residency’s extension through 2027. With repertoire ranging from works by Mozart and Mahler to a World Premiere by Carlos Simon, and soloists including Conrad Tao, Bomsori Kim, and Seong-Jin Cho, Music Director Jaap van Zweden and the NY Phil treated concertgoers to an eclectic, spirited series of performances amid breathtaking Rocky Mountain vistas. Check back for two more concerts later this week, conducted by Leonard Slatkin, including a salute to Sondheim. It’s an altogether fitting ending to an unpredictable, but ultimately triumphant, season for the Orchestra, as it now looks ahead to its return home to the new David Geffen Hall this October.
