CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS
Tuesday, April 28, 2015 | 8 PM
New World Symphony
Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
An eclectic program that spans Biedermeier Vienna to 20th century Switzerland is performed by Anne-Sophie Mutter, “the undisputed queen of violin playing” (The Times, London), with Michael Tilson Thomas conducting the New World Symphony. Mutter is featured in two 20th-century works: Berg’s profoundly moving Violin Concerto and Moret’s rapturous En rêve, a work written for her in 1988. Schubert’s warmly melodic Incidental Music from Rosamunde opens the concert that climaxes with the shimmering orchestral colors of Debussy’s La mer.
The contemporary work on this program is part of My Time, My Music.
