Carnegie Hall Presents

Making Music

Each concert in this series probes deeply into the music and thought of a leading composer of our day. This season, composer-in-residence Kaija Saariaho, holder of The Richard and Barbara Debs Composer’s Chair, provides commentary to her Making Music event, as does David Lang. In the third concert on this series, Carnegie Hall explores the work of Jörg Widmann.
