Mehldau and von Otter are back, bringing together classical music, popular music, and jazz as only they can. In 2009, they teamed up at Carnegie Hall to premiere Mehldau’s Love Songs, and on this program they present an extended version of the piece. Grieg, Sibelius, Brahms, and Strauss highlight von Otter’s special touch with lieder, and she also showcases her talents as a jazz singer.

Forty years ago, The Beatles and composer Karlheinz Stockhausen arranged to meet in New York City to plan a joint concert. No such performance would ever take place. But its tantalizing promise is the departure point for Alarm Will Sound's 1969. Told through their own words, music, and images, 1969 is the story of great musicians—Leonard Bernstein, Luciano Berio, Karlheinz Stockhausen, The Beatles and Yoko Ono—striving for a new music and a new world amidst the turmoil of the late 1960s.
