Those who are missing performances by the New York Philharmonic can now sign on to an on-demand, pay, video and audio streaming service.
It’s called N Y Phil Plus.
Initial selections include David Lang’s “Prisoner of the State,” Julia Wolfe’s “Fire in My Mouth” and a new concert featuring conductor David Robertson and pianist Emanuel Ax.
Five decades of “Live From Lincoln Center” are also available, however there are no initial selections involving Leonard Bernstein who was the Philharmonic’s music director from 1958 to 1969
The orchestra stopped large-scale live concerts almost a year ago in the face of the pandemic.
The new service costs $4.95 a month or $50 a year.
