Carnegie Hall Presents

International Festival of Orchestras I

Every orchestra finds a special connection with certain music, and with these elite ensembles the results are electrifying. The Berliner Philharmoniker performs the music of Schumann, including the original version of his Symphony No. 4. The Czech Philharmonic plays masterpieces from its homeland by Janáček and Dvořák, while the Danish National Symphony imbues the music of Sibelius and Nielsen with Nordic spirit. The Vienna Philharmonic honors its long history with the music of Brahms in a performance of his sublime German Requiem.
