Carnegie Hall Presents

Distinctive Debuts

The next generation of classical-music stars summon energy and virtuosity in intimate recitals in Weill Recital Hall. Award-winning harpist Sivan Magen presents a world premiere by composer Sean Shepherd, while 2011 International Tchaikovsky Competition winner violinist Itamar Zorman performs music from Bach to Schnittke. There’s more violin fireworks with Kristóf Baráti in unaccompanied music by Bach, Ysaÿe, and Bartók; and pianist Behzod Abduraimov makes his New York recital debut in a program of Chopin, Debussy, and Ravel. Join us after each of the concerts on this series for Salon Encores, a salon-style reception where you can enjoy drinks and merriment with fellow audience members and occasionally the evening’s artists.
