These Ensembles concerts are an offshoot of the New York Philharmonic, in which members of the orchestra play chamber works that go unheard at traditional NY Phil performances. While compositions by repertory giants like Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Debussy, and Shostakovich can be heard, the Ensembles also justly interpret the works of composers such as Dittersdorf, Frank Bridge, Ron Wasserman, David J. Grossman, and Vladimir Tsypin—which are infrequently performed in comparison. Performances occur at 3 p.m. on select Sundays during the concert season, and offer a great way to hear the orchestra members in a more intimate setting.
