THE ALLURING MUSIC OF CÉSAR FRANCK - Alice Tully Hall
February 09, 2018 -

César Franck, acclaimed as "the French Brahms," composed works of profound depth and unforgettable impact. But Franck's Belgian roots and Parisian sensibility also color his music with a sensuousness only France can call its own, as experienced in this unique exploration of Franck's captivating world.

múm - Carnegie Hall (Zankel Hall)
February 10, 2018 - New York

Echoes of 1960s psychedelia, Sigur Rós, and Björk resonate throughout múm's music. These Icelandic pop experimentalists use electronic effects, innovative sampling, delicate vocals, and traditional and unconventional instruments to create unique, otherworldly soundscapes. Whether they are collaborating with the Kronos Quartet or crafting the music for an art installation, múm's neo-psychedelic music mesmerizes.

Dorothea Röschmann, Soprano Malcolm Martineau, Piano - Carnegie Hall (Zankel Hall)
February 13, 2018 - New York

When soprano Dorothea Röschmann last appeared at Carnegie Hall, she sang the lead role in Purcell's Dido and Aeneas with heart-wrenching conviction. Less than two weeks later, she performed in recital alongside pianist Mitsuko Uchida with virtually unrivalled intimacy. She is a singer who can sail through the ornate coloratura of a Mozart aria and plumb the emotional depths of Schumann lieder, delighting with her "voluminous silken sound" (The New York Times).

Rose Studio Concert - Rose Theater
February 15, 2018 -

At the core of chamber music lies the intimate connection between musician and listener, and the Rose Studio Concerts embody this spirit. Enjoy classics and novelties of the chamber repertoire presented in a traditional concert setting.

Late Night Rose - Rose Theater
February 15, 2018 - Columbus Circle

At the core of chamber music lies the intimate connection between musician and listener, and Late Night Rose concerts embody this spirit. Enjoy classics and novelties of the chamber repertoire in a cabaret-style setting, a complimentary glass of wine, and engaging commentary.

Orchestra of St. Luke's - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall
February 15, 2018 - New York City

Mozart's final symphonies are pinnacles of Classicism that boldly point to the Romantics. His Symphony No. 40 opens in a state of nervous agitation and culminates in an edge-of-your-seat finale that Wagner called "exuberant with rapture and audacity." The "Emperor" Piano Concerto is grandly virtuosic and heroic in spirit—a towering landmark where Beethoven the master pianist and symphonist are brilliantly fused.

Alexandre Tharaud, Piano - Carnegie Hall (Zankel Hall)
February 15, 2018 - New York

"He conceives the whole piece as a drama that sucks us in and doesn't let go, and carefully paints vivid character along the way." That's what The Guardian wrote of Alexandre Tharaud's recording of Bach's Goldberg Variations. One of the pinnacles of keyboard literature, Bach's set of 30 variations on an original theme poses extreme technical challenges for the performer, who must frequently cross and overlap hands to negotiate the winding threads of counterpoint.
