Carnegie Hall Presents

The Late Romantics

Some of the most beloved composers were at their most creative at the dawn of the 20th century, when the Romantic period gave way to modernism. Explore this incredibly important time in music history with performances by the Royal Concertgebouw and Boston Symphony orchestras. Incomparable soprano Renée Fleming serves as both performer and host in an evening of art songs and chamber music from the period with pianist Jeremy Denk and the Emerson String Quartet.
