Carnegie Hall Presents

Early Music in Weill Recital Hall

Audiences with an ear for Bach, Handel, Couperin, and Marais will be drawn to this year's series. And if that interest includes their lesser-known predecessors and contemporaries Hume, Kerll, and di Lasso, among others, then there's no better place to be. Come enjoy some of the best practitioners of this scintillating music, as well as free refreshments and conversation after the concerts.
