Last month, just days after the New York Philharmonic announced Itzhak Perlman was joining its board of directors, the famed violinist appeared with the orchestra as a soloist in Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto.

This week's broadcast features that performance. Also on the program is Strauss's lush Don Juan and Hindemith's Symphonic Metamorphoses on Themes by Carl Maria Von Weber, both of which were featured in the orchestra's opening night gala. And for something more offbeat, the program rounds out with Dutilleux's Métaboles. Alan Gilbert, back for his second season, conducts.
