CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Performance Monday, January 23, 2017 | 8 PM

Staatskapelle Berlin

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Carnegie Hall’s first Bruckner symphony cycle continues with one of the pinnacles of 19th-century music: the lush and transcendent “Romantic” Symphony. Bruckner’s masterpiece unfolds with rousing horn calls, while its beautiful second movement is pensive and somber. One of his signature Scherzo sections follows with exciting waves of brass and swirling strings before a finale that’s a noble, roaring affirmation of the heroic. Daniel Barenboim also plays and conducts Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 26, a genial work with festive trumpets, drums, and an extroverted solo part the composer wrote to perform himself.

Daniel Barenboim's performances with the Staatskapelle Berlin mark the 60th anniversary of his Carnegie Hall debut on January 20, 1957.
