CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra
Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
The “formidable technique and dynamism” (The New York Times) of podium personality Mariss Jansons is on full display in this concert of orchestral works that run the emotional gamut. Jansons leads his Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra in a performance of Brahms’s pastoral Second symphony and Ligeti’s Atmosphères, evoking a sense of timelessness in a web of dense sound textures and tonality. The orchestra is also joined by Gil Shaham for Berg’s Violin Concerto, which combines tonal style with 12-tone technique to examine life, death, and transfiguration.
