We are excited to introduce a collection of music playlists on Apple Music, becoming the first classical music venue worldwide to serve as an Apple Music curator. We invite listeners to explore a wide range of music throughout the year that are reflective of the Hall’s varied concert programming, celebrating renowned artists—past and present—who have appeared on the Hall’s illustrious three stages.
Among the first to be featured on our newly-launched curator page are selections from Sony Classical’s Great Moments at Carnegie Hall, an extraordinary collection of historic recordings spanning eight decades, just released in celebration of our 125th anniversary. Alongside these historical recordings, we also include an eclectic selection of music guest-curated by the pioneering Kronos Quartet—holder of Carnegie Hall’s Debs Creative Chair this season—featuring works performed by the quartet over the course of their four decades of appearances at the Hall.
We also preview on our Apple Music page major artist themes of our upcoming 2016-2017 season, which include a look at early music from the Venetian Republic, further explored in the Hall’s La Serenissima festival; a guide to works by Steve Reich, holder of the Debs Composer’s Chair; and an introduction to the symphonies of Anton Bruckner, looking ahead to the complete Bruckner symphony cycle to be performed by Daniel Barenboim and the Staatskapelle Berlin.
Subscribers to Apple Music can now find and follow Carnegie Hall in the “Curators” section of Apple Music. Exclusive playlists will be added and updated on a regular basis, handpicked by Carnegie Hall artists and the Hall’s programming team.
