September 14, 2009 — The New York Philharmonic will receive a $10 million gift from Henry R. Kravis in honor of his wife, Marie-Josée Kravis, to endow its new Composer-in-Residence position, a major initiative of Alan Gilbert's tenure as Music Director, which begins this month. The Finnish composer Magnus Lindberg will be the first to hold the position of The Marie-Josée Kravis Composer-in-Residence at the New York Philharmonic, a two-year post that begins on September 16, 2009, with the world premiere of Mr. Lindberg's EXPO — the opening work on Alan Gilbert's inaugural Opening Night Concert as the Orchestra's Music Director.
