Lots of orchestras incorporate projected images of planets when they perform Holst’s The Planets, but not every orchestra’s hometown has jet propulsion labs and nearby rocket scientists as collaborators. So when I heard the Houston Symphony Orchestra was coming to Carnegie Hall on Thursday (Jan. 28) to play The Planets on January 28—with a new [...]

Every December I am struck by the overwhelming list of concertgoing options in the city, as seemingly every choral ensemble and orchestra comes out of the woodwork with offerings ranging from Bach’s Christmas Oratorio and Handel’s Messiah to John Adams’s El Niño and Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel. Sting just finished his two winter-themed concerts up [...]

Last night I finally had a chance to hear David Lang’s The Little Match Girl Passion. The piece is a Carnegie Hall commission that had its world premiere in 2007 with Paul Hillier’s four-member Theatre of Voice. If you were lucky enough to catch The Little Match Girl Passion premiere at Carnegie or have listened [...]

As I write this, it’s 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 8, and I’m listening to WNYC radio host Terrance McKnight count down the last 30 minutes before New York City’s all-classical WQXR becomes part of the WNYC public radio family. The change to a new radio frequency is being celebrated with a live broadcast of [...]

On Saturday night, I headed to Carnegie Hall to see Trey Anastasio, lead singer and guitarist of Phish, perform with the New York Philharmonic. But that—more on that later—was a sort of a tangent to the orchestra’s main event, which occurs four nights later. The Philharmonic’s opening-night gala will be on September 16, when they [...]

Also, get a sneak peak of what you can expect to hear at The Mutter-Previn-Harrell Trio performance on Wednesday, April 22, 2009, part of the Carnegie Hall’s series Saluting [...]

Paula Zahn interviews curator Jessye Norman about the “Honor!” for SundayArts, an upcoming festival that celebrates African  contributions to global culture and New York City at Carnegie Hall.

Danielle de Niese is back in her hometown of New York this month for her New York recital debut at Carnegie Hall on February 27. This comes directly on the heels of a run of performances at the Met as Euridice in Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice opposite Stephanie Blythe’s Orfeo, for which Blythe and de [...]

If you’ve ever parented, taught, or observed children aged seven, eight, or nine years old, you know that they need to be doing stuff to learn, not just sitting listening. This was something I observed when I went to see a professional/educational collaboration of Dido and Aeneas last spring at LaGuardia School of Music, Art, [...]

Gino Francesconi, director and archivist of Carnegie Hall’s Rose Museum, gives viewers a look at the current exhibition – Leonard Bernstein: The Best of All Possible Worlds. The exhibition is part of a special tribute to the late Bernstein – composer, performer, conductor and teacher – on the 90th anniversary of his birth.
