Carnegie Hall Presents

International Festival of Orchestras III

Four magnificent orchestras are featured in thrilling performances of Russian showstoppers, emotionally charged German Romantic symphonies, and an early Baroque masterpiece. The Berliner Philharmoniker with Sir Simon Rattle captures the color and lyricism of Rachmaninoff and Stravinsky, while Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra bring true Russian soul to music of Shchedrin, Tchaikovsky, and Prokofiev. The Vienna Philharmonic, conducted by Daniele Gatti, mines emotional power and melodic beauty in two symphonies by Brahms. And finally, Sir John Eliot Gardiner leads English Baroque Soloists and The Monteverdi Choir in Monteverdi’s brilliant Vespro della Beate Vergine.
