• Much of the most breathtaking music this season at Carnegie Hall was created in one astonishing era—the era into which Carnegie Hall was born. From the sultry, languid impressionism of Debussy’s Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune to the vast, brilliantly hued landscape of Scriabin’s Le poème de l’extase, a remarkable flowering of composers from around the world provided eager audiences with an unprecedented outpouring of unforgettable music.

    Beginning with Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade of 1888 and leading up to the outbreak of World War I, this period featured music by Sibelius, Rachmaninoff, Mahler, and others at the peak of their powers. It was truly a golden age of music.

    Using text, video, and audio clips, explore 10 key pieces from the period.
