New Jersey Symphony Concert Listings


Ravel’s Boléro

March 4–6

Bart Feller & Jonathan Spitz


Superb New Jersey Symphony 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!

March 10–13

Daniil Trifonov


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 make her favorite Russian composer’s music utterly unique.

Presented in Newark, Princeton and New Brunswick

Daniil Trifonov as Artist-in-Residence is made possible by Judy and Stewart Colton.




Beethoven’s Piano Concertos

March 31–April 3

Louis Lortie


This is glorious madness. Imagine running a marathon, then repeating it … four days in a row. French-Canadian wonder Louis Lortie teams up with the New Jersey Symphony to perform all five Beethoven piano concertos across four days. The Thursday and Friday concerts features Beethoven’s first and last concertos with the famed composer at the starting line of his career, full of youthful fire before reaching his glorious pinnacle. The Saturday and Sunday performances feature the “middle set” of his concertos, which holds surprisingly tender music and passages of jaw-dropping virtuosity.

Presented in Newark, New Brunswick and Morristown
