Carnegie Hall Presents

Orchestra of St Luke's

The Orchestra of St. Luke's sterling reputation is built on its artistic excellence and versatility. Principal Conductor Pablo Heras-Casado opens the season with an eclectic program of Purcell, Tchaikovsky, Dallapiccola, and Mendelssohn. Heras-Casado is also on the podium for a concert that features Beethoven's immortal Symphony No. 5, Stravinsky's piquant Symphonies of Wind Instruments, and Shostakovich's Cello Concerto No. 2 with one of today's magnetic young stars, Alisa Weilerstein. Another star, pianist Stephen Hough, is on stage for Dvořák's Piano Concerto in a program conducted by Harry Bicket that also includes music by Wagner and Haydn.
