Dvo?ák´s American Quintet Tuesday 15 October 2019

Tue 15 Oct 2019, 19:30 - Alice Tully Hall, New York
A magical evocation of a Midwest farmland sunrise opens Dvorák’s "American" quintet, a work inspired by the plains of Spillville, Iowa, and the music of Native and African-Americans. This deeply moving work opened a vast musical horizon in the New World, pointing American composers in search of a voice to their own native musical heritage. Harry Burleigh, an African-American music student at New Y

Haydn´s Joke Quartet Sunday 20 October 2019

Sun 20 Oct 2019, 17:00 - Alice Tully Hall, New York
The punchline comes at the end, but this quartet by Haydn sets throughout a standard of chamber music composition equaled by only the greatest masters. Haydn can indeed be devilishly humorous, and this quartet will seem all the more so in the company of his earlier Sturm und Drang Op. 20 quartet, and the sublime quartet by Mozart which was inspired by Haydn and dedicated to him with reverence. Cli

Brahms´s Clarinet Quintet Tuesday 19 November 2019

Tue 19 Nov 2019, 19:30 - Alice Tully Hall, New York
Before his death in 1897, Johannes Brahms memorialized his cherished, fast-disappearing Old World in works of breathtaking tenderness and profundity. Moved by the serene purity of the clarinet, he created a quintet for the ages, a heart-rending epitaph for himself and the 19th century combined. Schubert’s similar Fantasie , composed in the autumn of his life, and Schumann’s emotional Dichterliebe

Stravinsky´s The Soldier´s Tale Sunday 24 November 2019

Sun 24 Nov 2019, 17:00 - Alice Tully Hall, New York
In a single decade, with works such as The Firebird and The Rite of Spring , Igor Stravinsky showed possibilities for musical extremism never before imagined. With bracing harmonies, infectious rhythms, and brilliant orchestration, everything that Stravinsky created in this fertile period stole the musical show of the era, and this trio arrangement of The Soldier’s Tale (Stravinsky’s own) introduc

Bach´s Goldberg Variations Tuesday 3 December 2019

Lasting over an hour, the work is an immersive experience during which the listener journeys through time and space, emerging at its conclusion changed and enlightened. Jeffrey Kahane, one of a handful o

Corelli´s Christmas Concerto Sunday 8 December 2019

Sun 8 Dec 2019, 17:00 - Alice Tully Hall, New York
Arcangelo Corelli was not only history’s first truly "modern" violinist, but a musician’s musician whose compositions were performed throughout Europe during his lifetime. His "Christmas Concerto"- Fatto per la notte di Natale -is an early, Baroque age miracle of tone painting. The high drama of the Nativity scene is thrust upon the listener from the outset; the pastoral visions of nearby shepherd
