CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Performance Thursday, January 18, 2018 | 8 PM

Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
“It’s one of astonishing power and beauty,” said The New York Times of violinist Janine Jansen’s “full-bodied, polished-wood sound.” She is the soloist in one of the Romantic era’s great works: Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1. It is certainly a showpiece for the soloist, but the concerto is also a work of tremendous lyricism and emotional weight. The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra is one of the great Mahler orchestras, performing the composer’s Symphony No. 1 at Carnegie Hall—a work that delights with its sounds of nature and lilt of folk song, while uplifting the spirit with its sublime climax.
