Description: 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.
Venue Description: One of the most famous performance spaces in the world, and where the biggest orchestras in the world play when they come to New York City. They also offer neighborhood concerts throughout the year, tours of the historic halls, music programming, festivals, and more.
