17-05-2013 12:00:00 17-05-2013 12:00:00 America/New_York The Philadelphia Orchestra When Sir Simon Rattle and Barbara Hannigan get together to perform Ligeti's Mysteries of the Macabre, you never know what will happen. In 2010, Hannigan shoved Mr. Rattle out of the way and conducted the orchestra herself, part of a performance that perfectly "conveyed Ligeti's parody of a secret-police chief with scalpel-edge sharpness" (The New York Times). Also featuring Beethoven's evocative "Pastoral" Symphony and music from Berg's Wozzeck, it's an evening of unpredictable theatricality you won't want to miss. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=113466 Carnegie Hall Carnegie Hall
