“With Wednesday’s stellar staging of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel, the New York Philharmonic joyously put the ‘music’ back into the Broadway musical. From the first yearning chords of the ‘Carousel Waltz’ to the towering final chorus of ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone,’ Richard Rodgers’ melodies shimmered in the hands of the 71-member Philharmonic — an extravagant alternative to the scrawny dozen or so players a Broadway theater might muster.” [New York Post]
