Alan Gilbert (NY Philharmonic) and cellist Sol Gabetta and the National Orchestra of Lyon will play Brahms, Bach and Martinu’s symphonies Thursday 25th of January (8pm) and Saturday 27th (6pm) at the Lyon Auditorium.


Alan Gilbert was until very recently Music Director of the New York Philharmonic.

He conducts Brahms’ Third Symphony, undoubtedly Brahms’ best-known of the four symphonies, due to its covers by Gainsbourg, Montand or Sinatra.
