Griegs Piano Concerto

Picture a silver waterfall plunging from a towering mountain into a fjord below—and you have the opening of Grieg’s Piano Concerto. An exquisite painter at the piano, Vladimir Feltsman brings the concerto’s hold-your-breath moments to vivid life. Andrey Boreyko’s NJSO debut also features a pathbreaking ballet by his countryman Igor Stravinsky and a new work by living legend Thomas Adès.

Presented in Princeton, Red Bank and Newark

Xian Zhang Conducts Marsalis & Dvořák

NJSO brass and woodwinds shine in works showcasing their special sound and virtuosity. We kick off with a brand- new fanfare from jazz master Wynton Marsalis, Joan Tower’s take on Copland’s vision and Dvořák’s beguiling serenade. The full orchestra sparkles in Copland’s homage to Abraham Lincoln, narrated by the great American bass-baritone Eric Owens.

Karen Gomyo Plays Mozart

A journey from darkness to light. Samy Moussa’s Nocturne evokes the sea at night under a moody half-moon. Mozart’s Third Violin Concerto is a musical sunrise, and we’re delighted to welcome back Karen Gomyo and her unequaled ability to spin out Mozart’s radiant lyricism. Finally, the organ’s entrance in the finale of Saint-Saëns’ Symphony No. 3 is like throwing curtains open to noontime sun.

Presented in Newark and New Brunswick




Feb 26–27, 2022

Tchaikovsky’s ‘Pathétique’

Tchaikovsky’s touching final music, his Sixth Symphony, is on the short list of so many music lovers, and we are so excited to perform it for you. We lead into it with a gorgeous overture by Louise Farrenc, who with one beautiful score after another, broke all sorts of glass ceilings in 19th-century France. And Concertmaster Eric Wyrick and Juan Pablo Jofre team up for Jofre’s Concerto for violin and bandoneon—a popular tango-loving cousin of the accordion from Jofre’s native Argentina.

Presented in Red Bank and Newark




Mar 4–6, 2022

Ravels Boléro

Superb NJSO principals step into the spotlight: Bart Feller in a tour de force that lets the flute’s shining personalities sing out, and Jonathan Spitz in a piece many call the perfect cello concerto. Xian Zhang bookends this beauty with iconic pieces by the master orchestral colorist Maurice Ravel, ending with the slow-build hurricane of Boléro.

Presented in Newark and Morristown

Trifonov Is Back!

Artist-in-Residence Daniil Trifonov—"the most astounding pianist of our age" (The Times)—returns for his second week this season with a brand new concerto written for him by a musical polymath—DJ and composer Mason Bates. Xian Zhang specializes in Tchaikovsky’s singing line, digging deep into the sorrow and joy that makes her favorite Russian composer’s music utterly unique.

Beethovens Piano Concertos Nos. 1 & 5

Beethovens Piano Concertos Nos. 2, 3 & 4

Louis Lortie’s exploration of Beethoven’s Piano Concertos with the NJSO continues with Nos. 2, 3 & 4. The "middle set" holds surprisingly tender music, and passages of jaw-dropping virtuosity, from the heaven-storming composer.

Presented in Newark and Morristown




Apr 8–10, 2022

Zhang Conducts Mozarts ‘Jupiter

The "Jupiter" Symphony offers inspiration for the sheer miracle and Swiss-watch perfection of its final movement—and heartache, because this was Mozart’s last symphony. Beloved Principal Bassoon Robert Wagner has served NJSO audiences for 42 years; he plays the East Coast premiere of Christopher Rouse’s lyrical concerto. And why not play with convention and end with a starter: the rousing "Hi-yo, Silver!" curtain-raiser to Rossini’s Guillaume Tell.

Presented in Newark and Red Bank




Apr 28–May 1, 2022

Conrad Tao Plays Tchaikovsky

Since Conrad Tao’s NJSO appearance four seasons ago, his career has exploded: he’s written music for the New York Philharmonic, performed all over the world and earned a huge spread in The New York Times. He plays his own playful Spoonfuls and Tchaikovsky’s big-shouldered First, with Shostakovich’s lighthearted Ninth between.

Presented in Newark, Princeton and Morristown




May 12–14, 2022

Mozart & Mendelssohn

The NJSO’s Brennan Sweet and Elzbieta Weyman play some of the loveliest music ever written for violin and viola, Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante.

Presented in Newark, Princeton and New Brunswick

Season Finale: An American Rhapsody

We end the season with fireworks made in the USA. DBR kicks off the festivities with his exciting new work. The sparkling talent of NJSO Principal Horn Chris Komer shines in a new concerto written for him by four leading jazz composers. Aaron Dworkin, the visionary founder of the Sphinx Organization which lifts up young Black and Latinx musicians, narrates Coleridge-Taylor’s moving Rhapsody with the words of our nation’s first president. And the City of Lights swirls around you in Gershwin’s beloved classic.
