Oct-06-16 07:00 PM Carnegie Hall's Opening Night Gala The dynamic Gustavo Dudamel and the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela open Carnegie Hall’s 2016–2017 season with selected music for dance. Ravel’s La valse, commissioned by impresario Sergei Diaghilev, is a lushly scored waltz that morphs into a whirling dance of death. There was a riot when Le sacre du printemps, also commissioned by Diaghilev, premiered in 1913, but the savage rhythms and startling dissonance that pushed that audience to fury now drives audiences to their feet as they spontaneously stand and cheer this undisputed 20th-century masterpiece. This is a gala evening you will never forget.
Oct-07-16 08:00 PM Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela Based on a tale from Russian folklore, Pétrouchka is a sumptuously scored energetic showpiece. The music of the Venezuelan composers Juan Carlos Núñez and Paul Desenne is spiced with the popular song and dance of their homeland, while reminiscences of his native Brazil and the music of Bach inspired Villa-Lobos’s Bachianas brasileiras. The second of his nine suites is noteworthy for its closing toccata, a vivid depiction of a train traveling through the Brazilian hinterlands.
Oct-08-16 08:00 PM Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela The rapturous love music, exotic birdsong, and raucous, ecstatic dances at the heart of Messiaen’s Turangalîla-symphonie are unlike anything in music. Turangalîla is a fusion of two Sanskrit words that, according to Messiaen, mean at once “love song," "hymn to joy," "time," "movement," "rhythm," "life," and "death." With classical influences that range from Debussy to Villa Lobos and Indian rhythms serving as inspiration, Messiaen’s musical language is unique. The sumptuous, beautiful music is scored for an array of percussion, the electronic ondes Martenot, brass, winds, and a virtuoso solo piano part.
Oct-10-16 07:30 PM Rémi Geniet, Piano 23-year-old French pianist Rémi Geniet performs throughout Europe, including appearances with the St. Petersburg Philharmonic; the Luxembourg Philharmonic; the National Orchestra of Belgium; Poland’s Sinfonia Varsovia; France’s Orchestre d’Auvergne and L’Orchestre National de Montpellier. His debut CD, an all-Bach program, won a Diapason D’Or award.
Oct-10-16 08:00 PM The Philadelphia Orchestra Mahler touches the heart’s deepest, most tumultuous emotions in his Sixth Symphony. His opening movement includes a rapturous musical portrait of his wife, Alma. But the work's devastating conclusion is eerie and agitated. The original finale surges up three times, stopped in each case by a tremendous hammer stroke, presaging tragedies in Mahler’s life: the loss of his Vienna State Opera position, the death of his daughter, and the diagnosis of a heart condition that would prove fatal. Superstitious, Mahler eventually removed the third stroke, but his symphony remains one of his most powerful creations.
Oct-10-16 08:00 PM Sir Simon Rattle & Philadelphia Orchestra: Mahler's Sixth Symphony Sir Simon Rattle conducts the prestigious Philadelphia Orchestra in one of Gustav Mahler's most powerful compositions, his Sixth Symphony.

Opening with a loving musical portrait of his wife, Alma, Mahler closed his Sixth Symphony with a darkly emotional movement, in which fate's inevitable hammer strikes.
