Program

BACH St. Matthew Passion
Last season at Carnegie Hall, two of New York’s most admired and established performing groups—the Orchestra of St. Luke’s and Musica Sacra—teamed up with Iván Fischer for a noteworthy performance of Mozart’s Requiem. This season, they return for a must-hear evening that features Bach’s St. Matthew Passion.

Program

MOZART Symphony No. 29
HAYDN Cello Concerto in D Major, Hob. Vllb: 2
MOZART Ballet music from Idomeneo
HAYDN Symphony No. 99
Please note that this performance by the Orchestra of St. Luke's was originally scheduled for Thursday, November 1 and was postponed due to the ongoing effects of Hurricane Sandy. Tickets for the November 1 performance will be honored for this concert.

Haydn’s admiration of the young Mozart adds an extra dimension to this concert by the Orchestra of St. Luke's conducted by Nicholas McGegan. Both composers were titans of the Classical symphony, Mozart’s Symphony No. 29 and Haydn’s Symphony No. 99 being shining examples of their mastery. Steven Isserlis joins the orchestra for Haydn’s richly melodic Cello Concerto in D Major, and Mozart’s elegant Chaconne from Idomeneo rounds out the program.
