Carnegie Hall Presents

Early Music Instrumental

Hear the instrumental music of the Renaissance and Baroque as audiences did when it was first composed. Elite musicians in the vanguard of the historically informed performance movement reveal the beauty and color of great masters before the time of Bach in the intimate setting of Weill Recital Hall. World-renowned gambist Jordi Savall performs a solo recital, viol consort Fretwork plays the intimate music of early English composers, and acclaimed harpsichordist Kristian Bezuidenhout shows why he’s one of the great keyboardists of our day. 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.
