Elina Garanca returns to Carnegie Hall with the Met Orchestra - June 14, 2019

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.

Program

MAHLER Rückert Lieder

BRUCKNER Symphony No. 7

When: Friday, June 14, 2019 8 PM

Andris Nelsons and the BSO with Renee Fleming - Carnegie Hall - March 19, 2019

Latvian-born Andris Nelsons and the Boston Symphony Orchestra return to Carnegie Hall with renowned soprano Renée Fleming

This all-Strauss program of vocal splendor and orchestral thrills will leave you breathless. The tone poem Also sprach Zarathustra will be familiar to most for its opening “Sunrise,” the iconic passage used in the film 2001: A Space Odyssey—but that’s only one episode in a mysterious and marvelous work. From later in his career is Capriccio, his final opera, which opens with a passionate string sextet instead of a traditional overture and culminates in a rapturous monologue that ranks as one of Strauss’s finest soprano showpieces.

Program

ALL-R. STRAUSS PROGRAM

Sextet, Moonlight Music, and Final Scene from Capriccio

Also sprach Zarathustra

When: Tuesday, March 19, 2019 8 PM

Skride Piano Quartet - March 10, 2019, 2 pm

The Skride Piano Quartet is made up of four outstanding musicians who have each achieved success as a soloist at the highest levels. Violinist Baiba Skride’s natural approach to her music-making has endeared her to some of today’s most important conductors and orchestras worldwide. Lise Bertahaud is unanimously praised as an outstanding violist on the international music scene. Twenty-six year-old Harriet Krijgh is one of today’s most exciting and promising young cellists. Pianist Lauma Skride‘s playing is “wonderfully sensitive, with marvelous tone quality, and always with highly virtuosic vigor,” according to a review by the Bavarian Broadcasting Service.We rarely get to hear a program of piano quartets and the Brahms G Minor with its "gypsy rondo" finale is guaranteed to bring the house down.

Mozart: Piano Quartet No. 1 in G minor, K. 478
