Welcome to Early Music at Carnegie Hall
Carnegie Hall's first early music concert of the season takes place on October 22 when Bernard Labadie and Les Violons du Roy return to Carnegie Hall—with flautist Emmanuel Pahud—to perform a program that includes Frederick II's Concerto for Flute in C Major, Quantz's Concerto for Flute in G Major, and J. S. Bach's Ricercar a 6 from A Musical Offering, BWV 1079.
Each season, we present vibrant performances of historically informed repertoire from the Renaissance and Baroque eras, including operas in concert, musical gems for vocal ensembles and soloists, and works for period-instrument orchestras. And in the hands of some of the best practitioners, these performances demonstrate to audiences just how passionate, fiery, and virtuosic this music can be.
In tandem with the live performances, we present exclusive video interviews and written blog posts online from key early music artists—including Harry Bicket, David Daniels, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, and Bernard Labadie—and music selections related to the programs they perform at the Hall.
Now, early music fans can access all of that great content in one place: carnegiehall.org/EarlyMusic.
