Alan Gilbert era with New York Philharmonic begins next week

As part of its package "50 Things to See, Hear and Do This Fall," Time magazine recommends the premiere performances of "Two New Maestros": New York Philharmonic music director Alan Gilbert and Los Angeles Philharmonic chief conductor Gustavo Dudamel.

Gilbert, 42, is the son of native Memphian and former Philharmonic violinist Michael Gilbert and grandson of Noel Gilbert, a prominent figure on the Memphis classical music scene for most of the 20th century. (Of course, there are many other musically talented Gilberts.)

Time says Gilbert displays "laser-like focus and intensity," which, for the season opener next Wednesday, he will apply to the world premiere of Magnus Lindberg's EXPO, Messiaen's Poèmes pour Mi and Berlioz's Symphonie fantastiqu.
