Carnegie Hall Presents

Early Music in Weill Recital Hall

Experience the joy of discovery as a rich world of vibrant music from the Renaissance to the Baroque is presented by the world’s finest musicians. The London Handel Players perform Handel’s chamber music and hit tunes from his operas and oratorios arranged for small ensemble. There’s more Handel and some Bach when Richard Egarr, one of today’s great harpsichordists, plays masterpieces by these two Baroque giants. The beauties of Elizabethan and early-Baroque English songs are presented by tenor Nicholas Phan in a recital where he displays his polished vocals and expressive intensity. 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.
