Oct-26-16 07:30 PM Danish String Quartet Valedictory chamber works by Shostakovich and Schubert are performed by the Danish String Quartet, an ensemble The New York Times lauded for its “glowing sound” and about whom The Boston Globe said, “Even by today’s high standards, it offers something very special.” Shostakovich’s final string quartet bids farewell to friends, family, and life with six heartbreaking and poignant slow movements. Schubert adds a second cello to his String Quintet in C Major, D. 956—a work that is by turns joyful and eternal. Written two months before the composer’s death, the music doesn’t brood, but soars on gorgeous melodies that express a range of complex emotions.
Oct-26-16 08:00 PM Denis Matsuev You shouldn’t dare miss a Denis Matsuev recital. Audiences have gone wide-eyed for his “epic technique … superhuman speed, power, and agility” (The Boston Globe). Don’t miss this great “virtuoso in the tradition of Gilels, Richter, and Horowitz” (Los Angeles Times) when he returns to Carnegie Hall.
Oct-27-16 07:30 PM Boris Giltburg, Piano Boris Giltburg, winner of the silver prize and audience prize at the 2011 Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition, gives his New York recital debut with an all-Russian program. Born in Moscow in 1984 and raised in Tel Aviv, he has won numerous international competitions, including first prize at the 2013 Queen Elisabeth Competition, and has appeared with orchestras such as London’s Philharmonia Orchestra, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, NHK Symphony Orchestra in Tokyo, and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.
Oct-27-16 08:00 PM Orpheus Chamber Orchestra The young Beethoven filled the void left by Mozart—who penned the noble Overture to La Clemenza di Tito in the final months of his life—and inspired Georges Bizet, already an impressive symphonist at 17, when he composed his Symphony in C. Jessie Montgomery’s sparkling tone poem recounts her experience growing up in a recording studio on the lower east side of New York City.
Oct-28-16 07:30 PM ACO's 40th Season Opener: Contempo-Scary Music American Composers Orchestra opens its 40th Anniversary Season during the Halloween weekend with Contempo-Scary Music, a concert led by ACO Music Director George Manahan featuring music inspired by all things sinister and suspenseful. Contempo-Scary Music includes the world premiere of Paul Moravec's The Overlook Hotel Suite, drawn from The Shining, his Stephen King-based opera with librettist Mark Campbell which thrilled sold-out audiences at Minnesota Opera last spring; the world premiere of Judith Shatin's Black Moon, which introduces conductor-controlled electronics; Bernard Herrmann's Psycho Suite; and David Del Tredici's Dracula, a "gloriously giddy melodrama" (New York Times) starring soprano Nancy Allen Lundy.
Oct-28-16 07:30 PM American Composers Orchestra Halloween comes early to Carnegie Hall. Things that go bump in the night have inspired composers for centuries, but American Composers Orchestra contemporizes the theme with mystifying, electrifying, and just plain scary music. Film soundtracks, including a suite from Bernard Herrmann’s music for Hitchcock’s Psycho, and works that might inspire frightening films in your own head make for a spooky evening.
