New York Philharmonic Branches Out in "An Enchanted Evening"

Posted: Jun. 19th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Paulo Szot and the New York Philharmonic did indeed produce an enchanting evening with their mesmerizing performance that left audiences anxious to hear just one more piece. Bringing together some of the finest talents on the east coast, the New York Philharmonic made “An Enchanted Evening with Paulo Szot” an evening to remember.

Orchestras sometimes use gala concerts as an occasion to ditch the Bruckner and Beethoven and focus on other genres, as the New York Philharmonic did on Tuesday evening with a lineup of Broadway, Brazilian and classical songs at Avery Fisher Hall. The program, “An Enchanted Evening With Paulo Szot,” featured the charismatic baritone in a range of repertory conducted by Ted Sperling.

Mr. Szot’s career is unusually eclectic. A regular on the opera stage, where recent appearances include “Carmen,” “Manon” and “The Nose” at the Metropolitan Opera, he has also impressed on Broadway as Emile de Becque in “South Pacific,” winning a Tony Award for his performance.
