Over the course of 33 concerts from October to May, we welcomed 3,500 people into our Music Room and gave the DC premieres of 14 new works by established and up and coming composers. This included music from Nico Muhly, Brazilian composers Felipe Lara and Marcos Balter, and a new arrangement of a piece by Arvo Pärt, whose appearance at the Phillips was the most intimate occasion of the composer’s rare US tour. In the final Sunday Concert of the season we featured a brand new Harp Concerto by Canadian composer Vivian Fung which was co-commissioned by the Phillips and other leading presenters. With appearances from pianist Boris Giltburg, violinist Pekka Kussisto, the Calder Quartet, and many more internationally acclaimed artists, the 2013/2014 season was our best yet. Stay tuned for the announcement of the 2014/2015 season in the fall.
