Violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter concludes her year as the New York Philharmonic's Artist in Residence with something old and something new. Beethoven's Romance No. 2 is a study in sweet, glowing elegance. Sebastian Currier's turbulent Time Machines (2007) gets its world premiere, a piece in seven movements that explores "some aspect of the relationship between the perception of music and time." The program ends with the Philharmonic's first performance in 40 years of Bruckner's Symphony No. 2 in C minor.
