Date Time Event Description
Jul-22-14 08:00 PM National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America The National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America makes its Carnegie Hall debut in an electrifying program that begins with Bernstein's Symphonic Dances from West Side Story, a great American work that pulses with fiery rhythms but also includes some of the most tender love music ever written. The orchestra is then joined by Gil Shaham for Britten's Violin Concerto, an intense and virtuosic work written on the eve of World War II. Samuel Adams's innovative style is on display in Radial Play, a new work commissioned by Carnegie Hall, and Mussorgsky's perennial favorite Pictures at an Exhibition concludes the program.

Oct-01-14 07:00 PM Opening Night Gala with Berliner Philharmoniker
Oct-02-14 08:00 PM Berliner Philharmoniker Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances is his last major work, a dazzling three-movement orchestral showpiece bursting with color and intense lyricism that weaves threads of Russian Orthodox chant with the harrowing Dies Irae, resulting in a vibrant finale. Stravinsky’s Firebird, the first of the great ballets he wrote for Sergei Diaghilev, is cinematic in its vivid depiction of monsters and infernal dances, and concludes with one of the most thrilling endings in all of music.
Oct-04-14 08:00 PM Stavros Xarhakos, Conductor Stavros Xarhakos and Stamatis Kokotas perform a concert of contemporary Greek music. Stamatis Kokotas sings songs from his first collaboration with Stavros Xarhakos in 1960, such as “Stou Othona Ta Chronia,” “Poso Mikros O Anthropos,” “Me Ti Kardia,” and more.

Oct-05-14 08:00 PM Berliner Philharmoniker Schumann’s “Spring” Symphony bubbles with high spirits, from its opening trumpet call heralding spring’s awakening to its rollicking finale. Schumann’s Second Symphony, conceived when the composer’s mental and physical health was failing, was inspired by Bach’s Musical Offering and Schubert’s “Great” C-Major Symphony. The outer movements are heroic, while the second-movement Scherzo is at once fiendishly virtuosic and deliciously bucolic. The third movement—an impassioned, melancholy Adagio with a sweeping melody—is one of Schumann’s most inspired creations.
Oct-06-14 08:00 PM Berliner Philharmoniker “Every kind of orchestral sound that can tickle and seduce the ear was there,” said The Telegraph of Sir Simon Rattle conducting the Berliner Philharmoniker. Rattle and the orchestra premiere a new work by Austrian composer Georg Friedrich Haas and conclude their Schumann symphony cycle with the quintessentially Romantic “Rhenish” (inspired by the Rhine River), and the rarely performed 1841 version of the composer’s Symphony No. 4. This original scoring features lighter orchestral textures and was much admired by Brahms.

The contemporary work on this program is part of My Time, My Music.
Oct-09-14 07:30 PM Scenes and Songs from Fannie Lou “Scenes and Songs from Fannie Lou” is a concert presentation of selected music and dialogue from the new, original musical Fannie Lou, which tells the story of Fannie Lou Hamer’s voting rights struggle. The evening features a full cast of performers accompanied by a live, six-piece instrumental ensemble, and perspectives from Esmeralda Simmons, the founder of Medgar Evers College’s Center for Law and Social Justice. A portion of ticket sales will be donated to the Center.
