Carnegie Hall Presents

The MET Orchestra

The MET Orchestra’s virtuosity and James Levine’s mastery of seemingly limitless repertoire result in some of the most compelling music making of our time. Levine is on the podium for three concerts. He conducts Mahler’s elegiac Symphony No. 9 in a program that opens with the legendary Maurizio Pollini playing Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21. Mezzo-soprano Elīna Garanča sings Berg in a concert that also features music by Beethoven, Carter, and Schumann. To conclude the series, the orchestra plays Berlioz’s hallucinogenic Symphonie fantastique and Yefim Bronfman performs Brahms’s First Piano Concerto.
