Late Monday afternoon, the New York Philharmonic sent out notice that they are cancelling concerts through June 13—in other words, the entirety of their remaining 2019/20 season. It’s a hell of a loss, concerts were going to feature premieres from women composers as part of the orchestra’s Project 19, as well as a trip to Amsterdam to play in this year’s Mahler Festival (which as of this writing seems to be going ahead full throttle, so ¯_(ツ)_/¯).

The Philharmonic has turned on NY Phil Plays On, free archived radio broadcasts and a video at the top of the page of a concert of Mahler’s Symphony No. 5, all with Jaap van Zweden conducting.

I reviewed a few of these concerts, so if you want some reading to accompany your viewing/listening pleasure, here are the links:
