Carnegie Hall Presents

International Festival of Orchestras II

From Vienna to Venezuela, England to the Middle East, these inspired ensembles perform enduring scores that span nearly three centuries. The Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique and the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra chart a course through the masterworks of Beethoven, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra pays homage to fellow countrymen Berg and Bruckner, and Gustavo Dudamel draws inspired playing from the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra.
