Carnegie Hall Presents

Carnegie Hall Classics

It’s the perfect series for discovering all that makes Carnegie Hall the perfect place for orchestral music. Mozart, Beethoven, and Brahms are all a part of Carnegie Hall Classics. So is Stravinsky’s magical Firebird, always an audience favorite, and a shimmering, atmospheric work by Carnegie Hall’s composer-in-residence Kaija Saariaho.
