CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS
Saturday, May 10, 2014 | 8 PM
Featuring musicians of The Academy—a program of Carnegie Hall, The Juilliard School, and the Weill Music Institute in partnership with the New York City Department of Education
“One of the sharpest new music conductors around” (The Times, London), Susanna Mälkki has the distinct inclination to treat classical repertoire as contemporary, breathing new life into everything she conducts with her exhilarating interpretations. The conducting phenom brings her versatility and energetic vigor to a performance with Ensemble ACJW, an outstanding group of young professional musicians who have a fresh approach to programming that is redefining what it means to be a musician in the 21st century.
The contemporary works on this program are part of My Time, My Music.
