Carnegie Hall Presents

The Philadelphia Orchestra

Fiery young conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin makes his New York debut at the helm of The Philadelphia Orchestra in Verdi’s towering Requiem, as well as 20th century works by Ravel, Stravinsky, and a new work by Oliver Knussen. Sir Simon Rattle also takes the podium for an intriguing concert that pairs the timeless eloquence of Beethoven with the gripping music of Berg and the fascinating whimsy of Ligeti.
