Elīna Garanča’s voice is one-in-a-million, allying grace and power to a commanding authority,” wrote The Independent (London) of the lush-voiced Latvian mezzo-soprano. Garanča returns to Carnegie Hall for an exciting evening of stunning singing with the Met Orchestra, conducted by music director Yannick Nézet-Séguin
Mahler's and Bruckner’s deep personal emotions are masterfully expressed with gestures both large and small. Mahler’s Rückert Lieder contemplate love, life, and death with delicate scoring—solo instruments are used sparingly for effect—and subtle vocal writing. Bruckner emotes on a larger scale in a superbly crafted symphony that awes with its sweeping breadth, drama, and soaring lyricism. The work energizes with its robust Scherzo and jubilant finale, but its emotional core is the second-movement Adagio, a breathtaking memorial to his idol, Wagner.
