The Opening Gala concert will feature dance-inspired orchestral works, including “Azul” by Osvaldo Golijov, a cello concert written for Ma; the world premiere of an arrangement of Astor Piazzolla’s “La serie del Ángel” by Octavio Brunetti, commissioned by the New York Philharmonic; and two classics by Maurice Ravel, “Alborada del gracioso” and “Boléro.”

The broadcast, hosted by Audra McDonald, will also feature interstitial interviews with Yo-Yo Ma and composer Osvaldo Golijov.
