CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS
Friday, February 21, 2014 | 8 PM
The Philadelphia Orchestra
Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
The intrepid Philadelphia Orchestra, under the direction of its fearless Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin, returns to Carnegie Hall with a program of some of the most profoundly emotional meditations found in the orchestral repertoire. The performance includes Beethoven’s deeply felt “Eroica” Symphony, whose funeral march has rhythmic patterns echoed in Strauss’s post-war lament Metamorphosen. Also on the program is Shostakovich’s playfully dark and virtuosic Cello Concerto No. 1 with Truls Mørk.
